More About the Author

Belle de Jour rose to prominence with her award winning blog about her life as a London call girl. Her diaries, The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl and The Further Adventures of a London Call Girl, have both been bestsellers and adapted for a hit TV series starring Billie Piper.
After six years of anonymity, Belle de Jour revealed her true identity in November 2009 as that of research scientist Dr Brooke Magnanti.

Product Description

Review

The long awaited follow up to The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl charts the notorious Belle in the world of high-class vice. She's trying hard to land a respectable job, but can't resist seeing clients in her lunch hour. She's still at it, still doesn't care what people think and it's still utterly addictive. (COMPANY (October 2006) ****)

Full of agony aunt letters and advice from her days as a call girl, Belle de Jour's diary is bold and funny. It's a book full of insightful observations written by a woman working hard to find her place in the world. (WATERSTONES BOOKS QUARTERLY)

full of frank humour and even more frank action. (DAILY MIRROR (22.9.06))

Her writing [is] full of refreshing comedy and eye-watering advice...Belle's candid humour is compulsive. (Katy Guest THE INDEPENDENT (22.9.06))

Whether she's describing peculiar fetishes or handing out agony aunt style advice, it's Belle's witty, stylish writing, rather than her salacious subject matter, that really stands out. Although more Bridget Jones in a brothel than Catherine Deneuve in Chanel, this tongue-in-cheek delight will nonetheless leave a smile on your face. (Jo Hoare HEAT (30.9 - 6.10 2006) *****) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What a let down! I loved Belle's first book. This one, was simply awful. I kept forcing myself to turn each page, hoping desperately that the story would pick up, that it would get interesting. It didn't. This book is boring and self indulgent. Belle talks for 322 pages and somehow manages to say nothing at all. I had hoped that when I got to the conclusion, I would discover why Belle thought her ramblings important enough to be published. There is no conclusion, she simply stops talking. I feel angry and cheated.

I wish I had read the other reviews before I bought this book but I had enjoyed the first one so much it never occurred to me that the second would be anything but briliant. How wrong I was. The Belle of the first book was a strong confident admirable woman that I bet a lot of women secretly wish to be, call girl career and all. I loved her open minded attitude to people and found her a thoroughly likeable peron.

SO!! what happened in the second book? Well her first mistake was giving up "the business". Turning herself into a normal girl was the worst thing Belle could do because with that came the boring dull life and a personality to match. It is hard to believe that this is the same girl. She has turned into a pathetic sap, letting 'the Boy' treated her like garbage and making excuses for his childish bevahiour. Please!! I can get that kind if drivel from the stupid girls at work.
My advice... Get your sexy knickers back on and go back to doing what you are best at. There's no shame in that.

I loved the first book so much, I even left a review on here giving it top marks!

So I was very eager to read "The further adventures..."

Well what can I say but it was a bit disappointing and in parts down right irritating!

As with the first book there was the obvious wit and intelligence of the author, which on several accasions made me laugh out loud and I also found the holiday to cousin J's interesting. But as for the "relationship" with the boy well that really just spoiled the book! Are we meant to belive that this attractive woman who seems full of confidence, wit and intelligence would really put up with a stupid, unfaithfull, obtuse idiot because he's good in bed (her words not mine)?

Well i'm sorry i don't buy it and that is essentially what is wrong with this book!

So yes it is as well written as the first book, also the sharp observations and the intelligent wit are still there, not to mention through out the book some sexual agony aunt dilemas... very funny!

But and trust me it's a huge BUT, her relationship with the boy will really p#@* you off!!

If you enjoyed the first book then save yourself the hassle with the second. Gone is the sassy confident call girl Belle. Obviously a certain amount of it had to be a veneer but ALL of it?

Instead she is replaced by a normal girl. Ordinarily this would be fine except she has been replaced by THAT girl. The one you have to hate.

Whining about a cheating boyfriend but never bothering to do anything about it, bitching about other girls behaviour as if her own is exemplary and acting like a 12 year old over her parents divorce...

It's like she has become a nasty version of Becky from the Shopaholic series... the difference being that Sophie Kinsella is well aware her heroine is a bit of a joke.

I spent the whole book skim reading and wishing Belle would put back on her working knickers as that's obviously where her backbone is. *pout* I just really hope it was a bad year as I'm pretty sure she deserves better and am damn sure she can write to a higher standard.

Format: Paperback
I only picked up a copy of this book recently, and having read the original "Belle de Jour" a few years ago, I was hoping this would be an equally entertaining read.

Huge mistake.

The original Belle was feisty, clever, witty and funny. In the second book however, Belle decides to give up the game and go on a long holiday, somehow leaving her personality behind in the process to become an exceptionally boring person. She hooks up with the Boy again, and upon learning that he is unfaithful, starts obsessing over everything he says and does. I wouldn't have a problem with this if the subject was over and done with in the space of one or a couple of diary entries, but the moaning goes on, and on, and on, and then some more for literally hundreds of pages. It's about as entertaining as watching paint run dry.

There is no story whatsoever to this book; it's just a big, dull, bitter whinge-fest. I wish I had taken notice of the reviews on here before I started reading what must be one of the most boring books in recent history.

Sigh, it was only the memory of the first book which kept me going to the end of this one. Even that did not stop me skipping pages of interminably dull, irrelevant commentry of absolutely no interest to the reader. My desperate hopes that Belle would provide a punch line - something, anything (?) - were not fulfilled. I might as well publish my own diary and pass it off as readable fiction. However, mine will have in common what it does with this book - it is unlikely to be of any interest to anyone but the writer.

Now let's move on to the, frankly, disgraceful press she gives herself with the whinging insecurities of her relationship with "the Boy" . My word, boring, boring and more boring. Add a splash of frustration and amazement at her complete lack of self respect and you will get the picture. All that is left to say is that Belle's anonymity will serve her well - better luck next time but I will not be parting with my hard earned cash for a third time.
