Format: Paperback
Yet again Louise Kean has managed to make the most extraordinary situation seem believable in a way that you are sure it's probably happened to you somewhere along the line. Summer read, commuter read or present for a girl friend - this book is definitely going to score highly. The characters are so enthralling, I both laughed and cried when I hadn't even realised that I cared about what happened to them. Now twiddling my thumbs waiting for her next book to be published. Definitely definitely buy it!

louise kean has quite a different style of writing to other people i have read, she writes in a way that makes me care, not just that i am reading a story to pass the time. She makes me care about the characters situations and what happens to them.i felt for the majority of the book that i was actually in the story watching without anybody else realising. i had only got this book on a wim but now i will be looking out for more of her expertly written

texts.

Format: Paperback
I don't think it's healthy to regret time spent reading, so I won't, but when I think of all the things I could have done instead of reading this I can't help but feel sad.
The title, the cover and the synopsis all hint that the book will be a light hearted read full of laughs. I found this to be completely untrue. Kean's treatment of the subject matter is far too dark for the book to be a comedy and by trying to infuse humour the result is unsettling and insincere. She completely misses the human element as well by creating characters so unlikable that I didn't care if they "made it" or not. I only wanted to bash their heads together.
I thought the part where Nicola and Charlie "hijack an old people's bowling green" would be the book's redeeming feature but in reality it's just a short tale of petty trespass and uncomfortable public embarrassment. It could have been a great scene. It wasn't.
The end left me completely disillusioned and betrayed. It prepared me for a treat and then slapped me in the face. I had invested time in a story that had done nothing but sap the life out of me.
Maybe it was never meant to be funny. Maybe I missed the point. Either way, I shall be avoiding Kean's other work. Life's just too short to risk it again. I know this book will appeal to some readers but I can't recommend it. I don't really even want to take it to the charity shop for the fear that some unsuspecting soul will pick it up. Oh well, at least a good cause will get another £1.30 out of it.
