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.

Critic Reviews

"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!

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.

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.

Love the series, not for everyone

I love this series and have since I was in middle school because it’s mostly just a teenage girl and her friends/family living every day life. It’s written in diary style so you really feel like you’re experiencing what Georgia (the main character) is.
Georgia is a bit sassy but she’s quite funny and the author does an excellent job of writing a teenage girl. Sometimes it gets a bit petty and the drama is always not-so-serious stuff like getting detention for laughing too much in class, but that’s part of the draw.
Obviously the British slang and humor aren’t for everyone. I definitely preferred reading them over listening originally so I could look up slang in the back of the book, where I don’t usually listen to audiobooks while holding my phone. And not every one wants to listen to a teenage girl complain about flirting with the local grocer boy or shaving her legs wrong.
If you like the Princess Diaries series, this is similar, except Georgia is less shy, more outspoken, and not a princess like Mia.

I love this book

This book is very relatable even at an older age. it's fun to listen to and gives me something to look forward to. Georgia is a great character for girls how are coming of age and taking an interest in relationships or crushes.

4 Stars

JAS: He said, "See ya later."
GEORGIA: But he might say that to everyone, like sort of "See you later" sort of thing.
JAS: You mean you don't think he likes me?
GEORGIA: I didn't say that. He might never say "See you later" unless he means, "See you later."
JAS: So you think he might mean "See you later," then?
GEORGIA: Yes.
JAS: When is later, though?

🤣🤣🤣 Sorry, you might have had to have been there, but this type of dialogue reappears a few times throughout the book and it made me laugh more each subsequent time. What teenage girl, at one point or another, didn't over-analyze everything a boy said to her?

As many times as I thought Georgia was a little shite, I also laughed out loud. I probably wouldn't recommend this to a young person who is easily influenced by what they read or watch, because Georgia has no respect for adults. Parents or otherwise. That might be my biggest issue with the story. Other than that, it was a light and fun read with a well done audio presentation.

Character

I love books where I fall in love with characters. I was just annoyed at this bratty preteen character through the entire novel.
