"Kookier than Kinsella, but just as comical. Fabulous feel-good fun!" (Ali McNamamara)

An interesting plot! Although somewhat improbable this is, after all, escapism and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed both the book and the performance of the reader. This is an easy listen with an ending that holds no surprises - however, the entire book is entertaining from start to finish!!

Ludicrous - but great fun
Any additional comments?
Have you ever heard yourself assuring a hairdresser "Yes, that's lovely thanks" when you are cringing at the sight of the hair disaster in the mirror? I have.
So has Natalie Elspeth Butterworth, age 27, who also has a bit in common with the celebrated Adrian Mole, aged 13 and 3/4. Not in the story but in her very individual take on the world, and a naivety that borders on stupidity at times. Natalie is much kinder and less self obsessed though. This is unashamed escapist chick-lit that crosses into farce a lot of the time, and the mix works.
I'm older than 27, (considerably older), but I enjoyed it so don't assume it's just for the teens and twenties. It's probably too long and would have been improved by a tighter edit and a bit less introspection, but it's still well worth a listen if you'd like to try something different, and very funny.
