Publisher's Summary

The laugh-out-loud debut novel from one of Britain's best-loved comediennes.
Millie was at one time quite well known for various TV and radio appearances. However she now has no money, a best friend with a better sex life than her, a daughter in Papua New Guinea, and too much weight in places she really doesn't want it. When she's asked to be the frontwoman for a new diet pill, she naively believes that all her troubles will be solved. She will have money, the weight will be gone, and maybe she'll get more sex.
If only life was really that easy. It doesn't take her long to realize it's going to take more than a diet pill to solve her never-ending woes....

Could not relate

I feel bad to say it, but I didn't enjoy it at all. I listened it till the end tho. My biggest issue was that all characters seemed unacceptable for me - I'd never keep contact with anyone so dull, stupid, selfish etc etc. and all characters were like that.
In epilogue it was said that book was suppose to make reader laugh a bit - I didn't crack a smile even once.

Such a disappointment

What disappointed you about Losing It?

Nothing like the blurb. It gets off to such a slow start then just doesn't really move on. I got the impression that the writer had a good idea but then had to fill the book up with additional words to meet some sort of quota.

What didn’t you like about Helen Lederer’s performance?

Just not funny at all.

Any additional comments?

The characters were totally unbelievable.

So unusual and funny from minute one!

Would you listen to Losing It again? Why?

Absolutely!

What did you like best about this story?

So good to listen to a story that's a bit different and very cleverly observed from life

Any additional comments?

Wonderful writing style and clever interaction of characters - cliche I know, but laugh out loud funny and it takes a lot for me to do that!

Disappointing

Started off okay but soon became a drag and a bit predictable. Could not finish it.
