In 2011, Foursome was nominated for the Melissa Nathan Award for Romantic Comedy Fiction and in 2018, Faking Friends was nominated in the popular fiction category of the National Book Awards. [7] [8] In 2019, it was longlisted for the Comedy Women in Print Prize. [9] In 2020 she was awarded an honorary fellowship of University College London. [4] Personal life [ edit ] I finally finished this BELTER of a read from Jane Fallon...It is FABULOUS - with such warmth and humour, and the usual dose of the dish that is best served cold. Just Got Real is the perfect summer read.' CLAIRE ALLAN

Fallon describes Joni's job-sharing down to a tee, that slight resentment of the other person and any work they didn't manage to get to. She also does a brilliant job with the online dating world. More than anything though, I think I just found Joni and her life really relatable, and I enjoyed all the details of her life, her flat, her job and her love of the gym. I was sad to leave her behind and I feel like I got to know her really well. Het begint allemaal heel leuk. Joni heeft een datingprofiel, maar ze gebruikt dus de foto's van haar zus. Dan leert ze de knappe Ant kennen. Uiteindelijk leert ze hem kort daarna 'spontaan' in het echt kennen, zonder dat hij weet dat ze al eerder met elkaar op de datingapp hebben gesproken. I've read - and loved - ALL of Jane Fallon's books, but Just Got Real is her best yet! The plotting is as ingenious and entertaining as ever but this book has a lot of WARMTH and HEART. It's especially gorgeous on female friendship MARIAN KEYES I've read - and loved - ALL of Jane Fallon's books, but Just Got Real is her best yet! The plotting is as ingenious and entertaining as ever but this book has a lot of WARMTH and HEART. It's especially gorgeous on female friendship * MARIAN KEYES *Once, Iris was happy. She had the home, the husband, the promise of a family. Now she's divorced and renting out her spare room to make ends meet. Life could be worse. But could have been better - if it hadn't been for Maddy: the woman who ruined her life . . . Joni daren't confess her lie. Yet unable to stop thinking about what might have been, she hatches a plan to 'meet' Ant in real life without revealing who she really is. Ik word altijd blij als er een nieuwe roman van Jane Fallon verschijnt, want haar verhalen zijn altijd zo sterk, maar ik zal dan maar meteen eerlijk zeggen dat ik dat bij dit verhaal niet had. It was such a gift to have Teachers as my first TV show. It was fun doing all these ridiculous things, like having my knees painted, trying on moustaches, and pretending to be a girly girl to impress another younger teacher my character fancied, and not being able to walk in heels. They put a real lion in the boys’ toilets. The penguins were super smelly and quite shy. If you’ve got penguins queueing up to act with you, you know you’re doing something right.

Jane Elizabeth Mary Fallon (born 9 December 1960) [1] is an English author and television producer. Another Fallonesque treat. Full of heart, humour and humanity. She's so good at tapping into the best and the worst in us. Fabulous RUTH JONES A deliciously compelling story of romance and revenge. Just Got Real is intelligent, funny, and sharply observed. Be prepared to read in one sitting! * LUCY CLARKE *

Just Got Real is possibly my favourite Jane Fallon offering to date. If you love a feel-good story with female friendship at the heart, with a hint of revenge and a plot that gets you completely invested; Just Got Real is definitely one for you.

A smart and funny look at the pitfalls of online dating. It provides laugh-out-loud moments . . . I've read all Jane Fallon's books! -- ADELE PARKS * SUN * a b c d UCL 11 February, 2020, "Top novelist and television producer Jane Fallon awarded UCL Honorary Fellowship" I've read - and loved - ALL of Jane Fallon's books, but Just Got Real is her best yet! Especially gorgeous on female friendship' MARIAN KEYES

Overall, I was entertained, but not fully invested. However, I would definitely read more books by Jane Fallon. Jane is known as the revenge queen, but I really think the dialogue queen is more fitting, because the dialogue is truly masterful in this book. Jane's skillful use of razor sharp dialogue really brings every character to life, and makes the scenes so vivid. The story is perfectly paced, and you are guided effortlessly through the chapters. I've read - and loved - ALL of Jane Fallon's books, but Just Got Real is her best yet! The plotting is as ingenious and entertaining as ever but this book has a lot of WARMTH and HEART. It's especially gorgeous on female friendship." - Marian Keyes I’ve read all of the British author’s novels and love her or hate her she certainly makes an impact in the book world with her clever, contemporary, disloyalty fiction and I simply love them. I love the plot, the characters even the villainous ones, the setting, the writing and the sweet punishment for the wrong doings.

After her studies, she began working for a theatrical literary agency. After a few years there, she decided to become a freelance script reader and script editor for different theatrical productions and television, and in 1994, she advanced to become a producer on the series EastEnders. This was followed by a number of awarded series, such as This Life, 20 Things to Do Before You're 30, and Teachers. [4] Your writing makes the world a brighter place, [Jane Fallon]. Just Got Real is an absolute joy * JOANNA CANNON * I loved it. The set-up is glorious - a woman who joins a dating app with a fake photo meets a man whose photo is the only real thing about him. A novel about friendship and treachery that contains what must be the killer twist of the year. Totally brilliant' TONY PARSONSHowever, as she politely points out: “We all have a kind of existential side to us… where you think about what if my life was different, what if I was going through this… as a novelist you do that a lot.” And frankly, her close-knit group of girlfriends has been more than happy to report from the online dating frontline. “I really came up with the idea because so many of my friends were doing it and because they know I love a good story, they would all tell me their stories… Quite a few of them would think they were having a lovely time for a while and then something would go wrong.” I absolutely loved Just Got Real. It's modern, it's relevant, it's funny, and I was completely hooked from start to finish. Whilst the dating story is the primary storyline, it's very much Joni who is the main focus of the story, as she moves on with her life after a divorce, the loss of a friend and her daughter leaving home. She takes comfort in her routine but there's no real joy there. I won't go into what happens along the way but by the end I was full of hope for her in the future.
