Our customer reviews

I have a knack of choosing bad books and I usually end up not finishing most of the books that I bought off the shelf. However, I picked this out from the bookstore hoping that the likes of Dawn French would entertain me: and it's safe to say she did not disappoint. Written in a narrative-diary-like manner, Dawn French portrays her characters and their respective family roles quite well. They're engaging, entertaining and they all seem to have come to life through the words of Ms French's writing. Overall this book made me laugh and cry and the same time. Sheer pleasure and a delight for afternoon reads. :)show more
