Book Description

May 28 2012
The Director wants her for his film. The Billionaire wants her to want for nothing. The Lord wants to make her his Lady, while the Actor wants her all to himself. And what the Virgin wants - well - she can give him that only once. But who does she want? And where will she find him? Alexandra Gray's wickedly entertaining novel introduces a heroine for the noughties and the ten men she meets on her quest for romantic perfection. From the Virgin to the elusive Mr X, she dares to dally with the men that the rest of us regard with trepidation. But when the Actor has been dumped, and the Lover is left longing, who is it that she really loves? Ten Men lays bare the rules of sex, class and power in the twenty-first-century dating game.

Product Description

From Booklist

Gray introduces an intelligent if sometimes misguided heroine who learns about life and love with real grit and spirit. Desperate to escape her mother's stifling Catholic home, our heroine marries a schoolmaster at a men's boarding school on a French island but quickly discovers that island life and a workaholic husband don't fulfill her need for pleasure and adventure. She soon leaves him to pursue love as a single girl. True to the book's title, she describes 10 of her conquests, from the Virgin, a snobbish 40-year-old, through the Lord, a Brit more than twice her age, and on to the Billionaire, a sugar daddy who finances her American acting education. But these relationships really only leave our heroine with the same shallow notion about relationships that plague many men--the notion that love amounts only to the thrill of the chase. Reminiscent of Lucinda Rosenfeld's What She Saw (2000), Gray's debut brings warm, bracing insight to the classic chic-lit story of a young woman in transition. Misha Stone

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing July 2 2005
By A reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I checked this book out of the library based on the promise of the first sentence, in a Chapter entitled "The Virgin": "It is one of the wonders of the twenty-first century that a beautiful, brilliant and broad-shouldered man could reach almost forty without someone, somewhere convincing him it was time to drop his guard -- or his underpants." Shades of Jane Austen, I thought, could be amusing. Unfortunately, not very amusing after all. The narrator cutely names all her lovers, The Virgin, The Schoolmaster, The Lawyer, The Lover, The Lord, The Billionaire, The Actor... and recounts in excruciating detail her pathetic encounters. Seems to be a thinly-fictionalized memoir, and really, who cares? The only ones who were any good were quickly dropped, and she unaccountably and boringly chases after the cads. Waste of time, and waste of a good premise.

3.0 out of 5 stars Darker than I thought it would be; but a beautiful writing style Aug. 6 2005
By Danielle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I picked up this book thinking it was an interesting premise. I thought it would be a somewhat light summer read. But was I in for a surprise! It's more dark than fun, more eerie than uplifting. At times, I had trouble imagining the events of the book occuring in the 21st century. Or maybe it's just my lack of experience with British aristocracy, ie the Lord and the Billionaire (2 of the 10 men).

It's different .... if you want some darkness and eerieness in a novel, read this. Also, the writing style was quite beautiful. I'd recommend it for the writing style and the poetry of the words in itself. It's just not a story that will leave you exhilarated.

1.0 out of 5 stars What were the publishers thinking? Oct. 17 2005
By vera - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In assessing this book as chick-lit? It's really a very well defined genre right now, and just because the protagonist sleeps with ten men, doesn't make it chick-lit. The novel is dark and dreary (really); the main protagonist comes across not as courageous but as immesurably whiny.

I'm surprised at the reviews and reviewers also, one of whom dubbed this a true successor to Bridget Jones--there is no way Gray can measure up to Fielding's witty style.

The book has very few redeeming features. The writing is leaden, weighs you down (where was her editor?) and add to that the darkness of the book, it's suffocating.

There's a blurb at the back from some Suzanne Finnamore who felt "inadequate as a writer more than once" upon reading this book. Well. All I can say is if THIS book makes you feel inadequate, perhaps you shouldn't quit your day job.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good read! March 28 2013
By marjory - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The other opinions of this book did not match mine. I was inspired to write a more positive review. This book is a great read! The prose is beautiful and captivating. After reading it, I was inspired to go find more books from the author. It centers on a woman (who remains unnamed through the whole story) and her quest to find herself (first through men but finally through herself). It focuses on the relationships with the men. The other relationships in the book are fairly superficial but they are not the focus of the story so really don't need to be more than they are. Sooo, don't let the other reviews scare you away. Give this book at try!
4.0 out of 5 stars Great use of language Feb. 20 2010
By Si - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I agree that the story is a bit dark, but I loved the authors writing style and use of language. These men are based on the authors past relationships(so I've read in an interview), so its not "average chick lit". However, I would recommend this book for the prose alone.
