Collected now for the first time, these columns from one of Britain’s most popular and acclaimed writers are funny, perceptive, and touching.
I didn’t realise this book is a collection of short (real life) stories. I was hoping it was a novel much like ‘The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year’. I was expecting another good laugh but was sorely disappointed.
The narrator, Carolyn Oldershaw, has a dreary, depressing voice and I was often left feeling down after listening. Can’t say I would recommend this book if you’re looking for something light hearted and fun.
really dull, nothing at all like the adrian mole books. Just endless short scenarios that weren't even remotely funny.
