    A really fun enjoyable read that has each chapter interspersed with different charactersall the singles at the wedding of Bee and Matt Hannah Rob Nancy aka Phil Vicki and Joe Bee went to university with Hannah Vicki and Rob so they all have history along with Hannah's ex Tom whom she hasn't seen since they broke up 3 years ago and he's at the wedding with his new girlfriend Jaime Hannah and Rob have a secret history together but Rob hasn't turned up as he's having dramas with his much loved dog LizJoe who is Bees uncle is a 40 something from Las Vegas and he's making a beeline for Vicki as she reminds him of another Vicki even though he has a girlfriend Sarah back home and poor Phil who actually knows no one as he's taking the place of his mum who is sickEach of them come with their own dramas and problems and you wonder who is gonna get together with who and it's actually surprising the way it works out but it's nice at the same timeMy favourite was Hannah as she seems like the most down to earth girl who has been given some medication to help her stress levels which just seems to make her behave worse as she takes some sort of reaction to themEasy to read and full of fun and laugh out loud moments with a whole host of characters hapless and entertaining

    We meet Beth Eleanor Evans aka BEE aged 29 as she is writing her seating plan on a whiteboard the type you see in a boadroom It’s the last thing to plan and she’s getting married in less than 48 hours She spends ages trying to strategically place the five singles that are attending when along comes her mother Donna places them Job done This is the only time we spend with Bee seeing things from her point of viewTold in a third person narrative we switch between each ‘singles’ point of view which is told from the time of the bridal party getting ready on the top floor of the Tower Gardens Country Club through the weddingreception and on until the morning afterThree of the singles have history together having been at college in Syracuse but since drifted apart Bee’s uncle spends the majority of the wedding with one of them One of them doesn’t turn up until the next morning but is a part of it through phone calls and one of the singles is a substitute having taken the place of his mother who is a close friend of the groom’s motherThe focus of the story is about the emotional lives of the singles rather than the wedding itself although it is obviously the wedding that is in the background and the reason that brings them together We get to read their reflections and learn about hopes and dreams that have been put to one side although not forgotten Bee’s wedding is a pivotal point in all their livesIt’s easy for the reader to identify with each character’s profile and get caught up in the story The characters on the periphery add even colour with their personalities The pace of the story is fast – there’s no time to be bored There’s always something happening There are some hilariousembarrassing scenes and one poignant scene in particular that had me on the floor sobbing alongside the characterThe ending is satisfying although we don’t know the outcome for them all However we do know there are changes If you’re looking for a holiday read then I would definitely recommend you add the The Wedding Guests to your reading listI would like to thank the publishers Penguin for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest opinion

    I was lucky enough to win this paperback book from a giveaway on Jera’s Jamboree The blurb sounded different and funny so I was looking forward to reading itI always enjoy books about weddings but that’s probably because my own wedding was done and dusted years ago and I don’t have those kind of worries any This is the reason the first part of this book made me smile – the bride was arranging the seating plan and she was struggling to fit the singles those going to the wedding unaccompanied into the free spaces This was the only part of the book about the bride herself the rest was told from each of the singles viewpoints I found this refreshing as most wedding books revolve around the bride and groom although seeing as the book is called The Wedding Guests I really should have seen that one comingAs I had predicted from the blurb there were lots of laughs to be had I liked each of the characters – Hannah’s constant casting of the people around her Vicki’s reading secret Rob’s love of his dog Phil’s caring nature and Joe’s hopeful but unrealistic dreams It was when they all blended together that I enjoyed it the most and I found myself completely caught up in all the goings onThe wedding and reception were so entertaining and I flew through the pages just so I could see what would happen next I somehow managed to finish this in just a few hours A discovery in the dark when the reception was nearly over had me cringing and laughing in eual measureThe only issue for me was that the ending didn’t really wrap everything up as I would have liked I still had some unanswered uestions and felt like there should have been to itThis was an unexpectedly uick read that was light hearted and enjoyable

    Annoying people doing annoying things and uninteresting people doing uninteresting things and a very clichéed ending I have kind of almost forgotten what it was about The only one I cared for AT ALL was the guy with the dog He seemed like a good person

    Picked this up on a whim as I fancied an easy read it was okay not horrendous but not in any way entertaining enough to make me want to finish the book

  7. Aya Hesham Aya Hesham says:

    boring and i needed a miracle to finish it

  8. Sue Sue says:

    Have no idea why I borrowed this book from the library so unless you like uninteresting unoriginal books don't read it
