    1. Review of Book in comparison to the TV Series.My husband and I watched the TV series Younger this year and loved it. It was a lot of fun to see how someone around our age would adapt to the 20 something scene. So when Younger was the daily deal on Audible I had to pick it up.First - it is clear the TV show is based on this book but has definitely been expanded to include more characters and situations. The main character list only includes Alice, Josh, Maggie and Lindsay with a few appearances b [...]

    2. The biggest knock I kept hearing on Pamela Redmond Satran’s Younger is that no one would ever believe it if a 40-something woman pretended to be in her 20s. The feminist in me wants to scream, “Would you ask that question about a book about a MAN???” but I saved my vocal cords the strain because of course you wouldn’t. Nobody gives a shit how old a man is unless they’re casting his girlfriend in a movie. Ask Maggie Gyllenhaal. Hell, I’ve even seen discrimination about the age of the [...]

    3. Often I watch a tv show or movie and read the book if it is based on one. Of course usually the book is much better than the show or movie. But not this time. I really like the show but this book fell short for me. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    4. 3.5 rating This is one of those books that I dove into without really knowing what to expect and also with a bit of hesitation because I am not easy to please when it comes to Romantic Comedy. But, I am a huge fan of books that tug on my emotions and this book did successfully do that. There were several scenes where I was definitely reaching for the Kleenex because it kind of hit the nail on the head for how I've been feeling now that I'm in my forties. It was also kind of eerie for me because [...]

    5. Review: Younger Younger is about a woman who is in her forties and wants to be younger.  I’m 30, but this book definitely hit home for me.Alice wants to be able to get back into the publishing workforce.  She kept trying and they shot her down.  After her makeover she actually starts getting some attention from employers and guys.  I think the Satran did an amazing job of showing how age effects how others see you.  You are judged on your ability to do things and it works both ways.  Tho [...]

    6. This was a fun read that served well as a destruction during these last two earthquak-y days. I really can't say more about it at the moment, maybe after the earth calms down.

    7. There is nothing more that I love to do than to read a book before I see it in the movies or on TV. For some reason, it the one rule in my life that I actually never break. Let’s face it. It is sort of the age old debate, but instead of the chicken or the egg, we are asking which is better the book or the movie/show. So with this in mind, I started Younger by Pamela Redmond Satran.The premise of the book is simple, 44 year-old Alice has had a difficult year and chooses New Year’s Eve to make [...]

    8. I read this book in one day- needless to say, I enjoyed it.It was the perfect light read, but it did tackle some deeper issues about women and age.

    9. Estoy casi seguro que no merece las 5 estrellas pero que le vamos a hacer este libro tiene mas cosas a favor que en contra y admiro demasiado a la autora por concluirlo de una manera tan destacable, despues de una tremenda historia era facil que el final se quedara corto pero afortunadamente no fue asi. este libro tiene de todo: situaciones ficticias, situaciones reales, personajes con una evolución increíble, momentos graciosos, nomentos para reflexionar y muchas cosas mas. Lo recomiendo much [...]

    10. I am married to a younger man, so this was one book I wanted to read. Parts of it will keep you rolling on the floor. Overall I enjoyed the book but I wouldn't read it a second time.

    11. Por culpa de la serie sentia unas ganas inmensas de leer este libro, pero después de acabarlo tengo que decir y se me hace raro porque nunca digo esto que la serie es muy buena pero el libro deja mucho que desear (al menos para mi gusto) libro y serie no tienen nada que ver, se parecen como poco en el concepto de la historia y en detalles mínimos, pero si esperáis que el libro sea tan increíblemente bueno como lo es la serie ya os digo yo que no lo será, pero aun asi le pongo un 3/5 porque [...]

    12. Yes, I read this book because of the TV show based on it. It's changed a bit (not to mention it's ten years old) but it was still thoroughly enjoyable.Alice's husband left last year. Then her daughter announced she was leaving college to go to Africa with the Peace Corps. Alice, a 44-year-old housewife in New Jersey is bereft, alone, and hasn't had a job since she was 22 and had had to quit when her pregnancy developed complications. On New Years Eve she visits her best friend, Maggie, in Manhat [...]

    13. Il y a bien longtemps que je n’avais pas lu de roman de Chick-Lit, plusieurs mois, c’est certain. Je me suis complètement lancée dans l’inconnu avec ce bouquin. En fait, l’attachée de Presses des Editions Denoël me l’a proposée le mois dernier, pour une opération qui aura lieue très bientôt sur le blog. A ce moment là, il n’y avait même pas réellement le synopsis de disponible sur le site de la maison d’éditions. Mais je lui ai fait confiance et j’ai accepté. Merci C [...]

    14. Recensione completa peccati-di-penna/2Younger è un romanzo di narrativa femminile, un po’ rosa, che tra le sue pagine nasconde qualche perla di saggezza scontata ma spesso dimenticata. Mai giudicare in base all’aspetto. L’amore non ha età. Chi trova un amico trova un tesoro.La protagonista, Alice, ha 44 anni ma si porta molto giovane e con i giusti accorgimenti riesce a spacciarsi per ventinovenne e con il nuovo anno decide, spinta dall’amica, decide di sfruttare questo lato di sé e [...]

    15. Alice is 44 en heeft haar leven de afgelopen jaren fulltime doorgebracht als huisvrouw en moeder. Ze is een ster in het organiseren van etentjes en het runnen van een huishouden. Jammer genoeg is ze er echter ook vooral goed in om anderen voor zichzelf te zetten. Al die jaren heeft ze zichzelf grotendeels weggecijferd. Nu haar echtgenoot haar heeft ingeruild voor zijn jongere assistente en haar dochter het huis verlaten heeft lijkt haar leven plots heel erg leeg.Ze gaat opnieuw solliciteren maar [...]

    16. What I liked about this book: Josh, frankly I would have liked to have read more about their love story. Second, the book fit the bill of what I needed at the time--some light, easy to read story. Now, for what I didn't like. I find it hard to believe that a 44 y.o. can be so ostracized and unable to find a job in the working world. Okay, I agree it can be hard to find one without much work experience but mainly the book focused on Alice's age as a roadblock. Forty-four is now like being 34. Per [...]

    17. I was expecting a fun, light, and fast read and that's what I got. I enjoyed the premise. An newly divorced, 44-year-old housewife passed herself off as a single woman in her early twenties to find work, adventure, and romance, among other things. My main issue with this book was how incredibly fluffy it was. The characters were fairly shallow and not that well developed. The author tried to tackle some broader women's issues (subjects like marriage, work, children, "can women have it all?") but [...]

    18. De la chick-lit comme on aimerait en lire plus souvent ! Les pages se tournent toutes seules et il est agréable de suivre, pour une fois, une héroïne un peu plus âgée. Un roman sur les rêves de jeunesse et sur la possibilité de changer de vie quand on le veut vraiment. Une lecture rigolote et émouvante.Ma chronique : myprettybooks.wordpress/2

    19. J'ai beaucoup aimé. C'est un conte de fée moderne pas forcément réaliste mais très positif. Maintenant je vais regarder la série TV

    20. Meh? Meh. Pretty good right up until the end. Did a different author take over? We went into crazy town pretty quickly.

    21. This is the basis for the show Younger on TV Land which I totally like. But unlike most books being better than their movie counterpart, this provided an the framework for what is a cute, entertaining show. I actually don't mind all the tweaks even renaming the main character from Alice to Liza. I do think book Josh is more mature and and fleshed out and in the show he's kinda annoying and I don't really buy their longevity as a couple. I also could buy Alice as almost 30 but in the show she's 2 [...]

    22. I love the silly show that's based on this book, but sadly, the source material is like a thin, watered-down version of it. It's never particularly fair to judge something -- this book -- as poor just because it isn't the thing you want it to be -- the show -- but actually, I think my fondness for the TV version is the only thing that made me see anything positive in what is otherwise a deeply mediocre piece of contemporary fiction.

    23. I purchased Younger because I adore the TV Land series of the same name. I found it to be a fun read, though it didn’t end the way I expected it to. Alice was an entertaining protagonist and I enjoyed seeing what we as millennials are like through the eyes of a 40 year old trying to masquerade as one. The TV series is a touch spicier so keep that in mind if that is the catalyst behind your interest in reading the book.

    24. I love the show that is based on this book. I struggled to read the book after watching the show though. Character names were changed and I'm too type A for that to not bug the crap out of me so the book was hard for me to get into.

    25. i watched the show before reading the book and its one of few times ive enjoyed the movie/show over the book.
