Slummy Mummy is a hilarious novel about the dilemmas of modern marriage and motherhood for those who never discovered their inner domestic goddess. Pitch-perfect and satisfyingly smart, it offers a lovable, flawed character who resonates, entertains, and undoubtedly has it worse than you do.
I liked the book. It is funny and very entertaining. Unfortunately, something is lost in the audio version. I'd recommend reading it instead.
Slummy Mummy is well-known in England, and I'm glad the audiobook made it here! The story is one of Lucy, a really disorganized stay at home mom and the chaos she turns her life into through various missteps. Lucy is still a lovable character and her interactions with her husband, kids, and the other parents at school and in the neighborhood are hilarious.
The reader gives Lucy a great voice and tells her story in a relatable way which makes you sympathize with her (rather than finding her annoying, like some other chick lit characters). I can't wait to listen to the next book in the Slummy Mummy series now!
I couldn't get through the entire book...Way too boring and slow.
Loved it. Surprises around every corner.
"Slummy Mummy" was terrific! It was wonderfully written, never predictable, and the ending was laugh-out-loud funny. It brought up some fantastic points about motherhood in the modern age, about the so-called "Mommy Wars" and about marriage. It's GREAT. I highly recommend it - I'm only sorry the author doesn't have another audiobook for sale now. But I'll be keeping an eye out for her next one.
I will finish almost every single audiobook cause they are so expensive, but I just cannot finish this one, so slow and dull. Not funny at all.

This is the worst audiobook I've ever listened to. There is no plot, it isn't funny, and the reader is dull. Don't waste your money.
