Editorial Reviews

The first day out in public with your newborn is a momentous occasion. There's pride, there's nerves, and, for Maddy Wolfe unfortunately, there's being mistakenly arrested for shoplifting. Mad Cows performed sharply by veteran narrator Fiona Macleod, is the comical adventure of a new mother done wrong and her attempts at securing her freedom and protecting her newborn baby. Though the theme is serious, Kathy Lette's witty prose and hilarious characters make this story one full of laughter rather than nerves. Top off your glass of chardonnay and follow Maddy as she navigates a world of cocky ex-lovers, clumsy friends, and inept policemen.

Publisher's Summary

Every woman wants to be wanted, just not by the entire Metropolitan police force...Maddy Wolfe's first day out with her newborn takes a Kafkaesque turn when she's wrongfully arrested in Harrods for shoplifting. The only person she can turn to is her hot-to-trot ex-lover Alex, who proves himself to be as useful as a solar powered vibrator on a rainy day. When will he realise that a paternity suit is not the latest look in men's leisurewear?
How do you brief a lawyer with a heat-seaking penis that doesn't report to mission control? An why the hell is Maddy's friend Gillian searching for a sperm happy to get egg all over its face?

Think before you buy!!!

I am an avid reader and audible listener. I have never written a review, but felt that on this book I had to. It was very hard to listen to due to the accent of the narrator. I don't even think it was her fault. I think the book was just poorly put together. There was too much English slang run togther, disjointed sections, and unrealistic situations. It was hard to follow. I did alot of backing up and relistening to areas. There were some very funny one liners, but overall I felt like I had to finish the book just because I was in shock. I have never encouraged someone to not buy a book, or to not read, but I will not encourage anyone to buy this one.

I don't recommend

The narrator's voice and annunciation is enough to make me drive off the road. The story was okay. I have listed to much better, but not many worse.

Dated and Disappointing

Never read Kathy Lette before and won't again. Granted, perhaps it's just a book that doesn't age well but... I didn't enjoy or warm to a single character! Found them all vile.

Narrotor did nothing for me either.

Just not to my taste at all. Sorry Lette fans.

Brilliant - Laugh Out Loud

What other book might you compare Mad Cows to, and why?

Sequel to Foetal Attraction which is also brilliant. Enjoy all of Kathy Lette's books. Definitely not a run of the mill chick lit.
