Honeymoon Cover



Reading Group Guide

1. Do you believe that there will only ever be one love of your life?

2. Did you think the various settings of the book ? London, New York, the Caribbean islands ? contributed to Honey's final decision about the outcome of her love life?

3. Can old-fashioned romance still exist now that people such as Honey and her friends rely so much on email and cell phones instead of waiting for love letters to arrive in the mail? Do you think Honey would have still had the same ending to her story without these things?

4. Would Honey have made the same choices without the aid of her sister? How has your family gotten in the way of one of your romances or, alternatively, moved one right along?

5. Do you think it's possible to be in love with two people at the very same time?

6. Did Honey make the right choice? Do you think she will have regrets? What would you have done if you were Honey?

7. Is there a point in your life when it's time to discard fantasy romances? How much of Honey's ultimate choice was about a fantasy? How much of it was about a particular time in her life where she felt the need to make a major decision?

8. Was Honey's final decision a compromise? Can you influence your own destiny when it comes to love?

"Review" by , "Jenkins has created a complex character in Honey, a woman who is torn between fairy-tale ideals and real-life romance and drolly questions the modern ? and often terribly unsatisfactory ? quest for a lifetime partner who must be the embodiment of perfection."
"Review" by , "It must have sounded like a great idea when TV/screenwriter Jenkins pitched it...but it falls flat because there's nothing to support the juicy central concept: no logical lead-in, no compelling complications to follow, just Honey's adorably vapid chatter...and a thousand warmed-over digressions....For every line that snaps...a dozen go limp."
"Review" by , "[Honey] stands on her own two feet as a strong comic heroine....Despite constant self-deprecation, Honey is more maturely self-aware and intellectually brighter than previous literary creations within this genre....Jenkins sets the stage for a conclusion to this romantic quagmire that's anything but predictable."
"Review" by , "Honeymoon is first-time novelist Amy Jenkins's wry tale of finding true love at the most inconvenient time. A fast-paced, raucous romp of miscommunications and misadventures..."
"Review" by , "Sexy and fast-moving."
"Review" by , "Entertaining....Anyone who enjoys a romantic romp filled with chaos and confusion will gain pleasure from Honeymoon."
"Synopsis" by , In this ultracontemporary romantic comedy, two former lovers meet within hours of their respective weddings as they honeymoon at the same Mexican resort with hilarious and heart-wrenching consequences for all.
