Wouldn't it be better to find a well-heeled admirer to solve all one's problems in one go? Annett doesn't feel too bad about this - after all, she is by no means the first woman trying to make such a life for herself in Germany. Will our protagonist find happiness by following her chosen path? Or will her surroundings force her to make some changes to the way she plans to live her life?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The search for happiness Annett’s quest to find the secret to a good relationship leads her to take many wrong turns before she finally finds the road to happiness. Her rather ‘unique’ dancing style, which attracts attention for all the wrong reasons, becomes the key to unlocking that elusive mystery. On its surface, this story tells of the plight of a young woman in search of Mr Right. However, it also delves more deeply into the interaction between the sexes and the underlying complications which beset modern-day dating. When Annett eventually enrols in dance classes she also compares her own situation with that of the older generation, offering an interesting glimpse into these women’s struggle to comply with social expectations. The author’s fascination with human emotions and the intricacies of relationships is evident on every page. Despite being an entertaining, light-hearted work of fiction, the book also has a serious side, as it is a study into one particular aspect of human nature. In fact, the plot itself does not begin to take shape until several pages in, as the opening is given over to Annett’s theory concerning the perfect man and how to find him. Before launching into the actual details of the story, she sets out her own, rather naïve and narrow-minded philosophy of life and happiness, along with some quite rigid criteria with which a potential suitor must comply, and her action plan for achieving her goal. As with all good essays, though, counter-arguments are gradually introduced, and new developments cause her to rethink and readjust her theories, so that happiness becomes a more realistic prospect, although perhaps not in the way she had originally supposed. This book is certainly emotionally engaging. There are many cringe-worthy scenes, as Annett veers down one dead end after another, clearly heading for disaster. Nevertheless, as time passes, such episodes become less frequent as she begins to learn from her mistakes. Although the sense of relief at the end is not absolute, there is certainly a feeling that the heroine is maturing and moving in the right direction, and that she may at last be on the right track.
