Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson | [Louise Rennison]

Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson

Several things about 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson's life are very wrong. Her bedroom smells like her little sister probably peed somewhere, but she can?t find where. Angus, her enormous cat, keeps terrorizing Mrs. Next Door's poodle. Dad's gone off to look for work in New Zealand. And one of her friends has rated Georgia's nose a zero on a scale from 1-10. But what's really driving her crazy is that Sex God Robbie doesn't give her the time of day.

Publisher's Summary

Several things about 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson's life are very wrong. Her bedroom smells like her little sister probably peed somewhere, but she can?t find where. Angus, her enormous cat, keeps terrorizing Mrs. Next Door's poodle. Dad's gone off to look for work in New Zealand. And one of her friends has rated Georgia's nose a zero on a scale from 1-10. But what's really driving her crazy is that Sex God Robbie doesn't give her the time of day. In fact, he's dating total idiot Lindsay, who Georgia happens to know wears thong knickers, which have no purpose except to climb up your bum. Is it too much for Georgia to hope for some full-frontal snogging with a Sex God, if he ever notices her?

Louise Rennison caused a sensation with this hilarious book that has been called Bridget Jones' Diary for adolescents. Narrator Stina Nielsen brilliantly fills the shoes of one of the most colorful young adult book characters in years.

What the Critics Say

"A spectacular YA debut." (Publishers Weekly)
"Anyone who's ever ridden the roller coaster of adolescence will relate to 14-year old Georgia Nicholson's hysterically funny journal." (Seventeen)
"It will take a sophisticated reader to enjoy the wit and wisdom of this charming British import, but those who relish humor will be satisfied. Fresh, lively, and engaging." (School Library Journal)
"You know when you really should stop laughing and everyone is looking at you? This was me reading the manuscript on the train. This is a brilliant book!...I can't recommend it highly enough." (The Guardian)

    "Hilarious listen for pre-teens and adults"

    This is a hilarious story about the everyday happenings of a British 14-year-old. The British slang and wonderful narration would be worth the listen even without the entertaining story. The references to Georgia's cat never failed to make laugh out loud, and Georgia's madcap shenanigans were a great portrayal of the teenage psyche. One word of warning, however-- there is a LOT of British slang that may be confusing for those not familiar with it. There is a "glossary" at the end that explains it, but that is of limited usefulness in an audio format. Teens and folks with limited British exposure might do better to enjoy this one in print, but whatever the format this is not one to miss!

    Story
    "Best. Audio. Book. Ever."
    Where does Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book can only be describes as genius, crazy and so funny you might pee your pants. I was on the bus looking like an insane person laughing my ass off to this book. Buy it, better yet buy the book version so you can read along.


    What other book might you compare Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging to and why?

    Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling
    Gallagher Girls Series By Ally Carter
    One for the Money by Janet Evanovich


    Have you listened to any of Stina Nielson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I thought she did a fantastic job. Her tone and inflection perfectly imitated that of a very pissed off but hilarious cheeky teenager.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, unfortunately life got in the way


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic movie, book and the audiobook really did it justice.

    "Wonderful Narration!"

    The story really is great, but I'm in love with Stina Nielson's narration. She really brings Georgia to life, and reminds me of some of my favorite comedians from BBC Radio 4. I enjoyed the diary/journal format, as well. It kept things punchy and succinct, so Georgia never becomes as annoying and hate-able as a silly, self-obsessed teenager ought to be. As she as can manage to do something dreadful, you're into another entry where she's correcting her actions, or at least suffering for them.

    "So fun!"

    I read this book when I was younger and I absolutely loved it. I decided to get the audio version and Stina Nielson completely brought it to life for me! I LOVE Louise Rennison's Georgia Nicolson books. They are so hilarious and so much fun. I have downloaded the rest of the series and I've been laughing through all of them. Don't pass up this fun (and funny!) book. Even as an adult, I still love to read and re-read this series.

    "Don't go in expecting deep!"

    This is the first in the series written by Rennison - and do not expect there will be any deep subject matter! If you were ever a teenage girl...you will relate to many of the entries that Georgia makes in her diary. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as a get away from more serious or sober subject matter.

    "Self-Centered Teenage Girls--Honest and Hilarious"

    The antics of Georgia Nicolson, as related through her diary, are especially hilarious when read aloud by Stina Nielson. Something of the essential English-ness of Georgia and her mates is translated much more effectively through the audio format than the printed word.

    There's nothing high-brow about this book--no overwhelming or enlightened commentary about the human condition. Rather, it is the human condition of one 14-year-old school girl, told in open, honest, and unforgettable prose. Being 14 and in the throes of luurrve was never so much fun.
