Product Description

Review

'This is a riveting read with Jones a witty, frank, pomposity-free communicator' Observer

'She may have turned herself into the latest comedy character since Alan Partridge' Sunday Times

'A horribly enjoyable misery memoir with added designer labels' Sunday Express

'Like all Liz Jones's work, Girl Least Likely To... is compellingly readable and often funny as well as appalling' Evening Standard

'You might not want to be Liz Jones, but you'll relish her talent to amuse and enrage' The Times

'Readers might not always agree with what she says, and sometimes wonder why she's saying it in the first place, but she has a great turn of phrase. As pieces of entertainment, Jones polemics are hard to beat' Metro

'For anyone who has seen Liz Jones on Channel 5 s Celebrity Big Brother and wondered if she s for real, this autobiography charts the columnist's lifelong battle with low self-esteem and depression. Vital moments of wit and humour stave off monotony' --Daily Express

She may have turned herself into the latest comedy character since Alan Partridge --Sunday Times

A horribly enjoyable misery memoir with added designer labels --Sunday Express --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I've followed Liz Jones avidly since the early days of her Daily Mail diary column, documenting her marriage and subsequent breakdown to Nirpal Singh Dhaliwal. I have to confess that initially I felt sorry for her as he treated her absymally, although I've always thought that her constant name-dropping of designer articles and cost of, extremely grating to say the least. In recent years, Liz has dropped tantalising hints about a relationship with a mystery rock star. I decided to give her another chance as I hoped there would be a big reveal from our favourite confessional columnist in her latest tome...well, having read it - nada, not a sausage. Her "woe is me" style as one of the highest paid UK journalists is distasteful to say the least, as is her constant blaming of her poor family for all her misfortunes. It was a waste of money, I should have just searched for all her old articles and diaries on mail online because this is basically what this book consists of - from a truly disgruntled ex fan, I feel completely and utterly ripped-off.

I thought that this book, by the former editor of Marie Claire magazine, would contain some fascinating stories and gossip about the fashion industry. Nope. I am familiar with Ms Jones from the more 'outrageous' articles she's written for the Daily Mail, but the book is a boring, repetitive, poorly written whine about how this woman's life didn't turn out how she'd expected. I had hoped that one of the highest paid columnists in the country would be able to string a sentence together, but again I was disappointed. Also she alleges a 3 year relationship with a Rock Star (doubtful, no evidence exists to support this) who fails to muster even a mention in this tedious diatribe.

In a nutshell, this is chapter after chapter of an annoying little sister whining "So UNFAAAAAIIIRRR". There is a big difference between being a writer and being a person with a laptop and too much time on their hands.
Save your money, buy a better book.

I was given this book, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered with it, having read Ms Jones's outpourings over the years and having been unimpressed with her writing. It was a very tedious read, filled with repetitions of what she has written for the Daily Mail or, in some cases, a different version of previously published stuff. I have finally finished it and am very glad I can return to reading something well-written - which this is not. It is full of poor grammar, which I find off-putting for a start. And it is miserable. A miserable book by and about someone who has no reason to be so miserable in the first place but has made herself so over the years. I feel sorry for the many people she has named and been unplesant about too.

Have managed to get as far as the Marie Claire years and am too bored to continue - as everyone else has said, it's a rehash of old Drearies (oops sorry, Diaries) and I wish I hadn't bothered. If you're thinking of buying it, don't bother - you've read it all before!

This is mind-numbingly dull. There is nothing new at all as if you have read any of Liz Jones' columns you will recognise all the endlessly rehashed stories and diatribes. Considering the book was written by a professional "journalist" it is remarkably badly written as a sort of stream of consciousness that leaps erratically from one thing to another.

A waste of money and not even worth one star.

Goodness what a disappointment! Despite a lot of negative reviews I thought I would have a go with this book, I now agree with all the one star reviews and worry about the couple of 4 and 5 stars. For someone who allegedly earns approaching £200,000 a year from her journalistic attempts she has no writing skill at all. This book appears to be a recycling of her columns for the Mail and Mail on Sunday. what were the publishers thinking of? I doubt they will sell enough books to cover whatever advance they gave her.

Format: Hardcover
... but fails to make any mention at all of the Fantasy Rock Star 'boyfriend' who has featured so prominently in her searingly honest 'Diaries' for the last three years.

Badly written, poorly edited, rambling, vindictive, solipsistic re-hash of her already-much-rehashed Daily Mail and MOS click-bait 'articles'. The only possible reason for reading this is to play 'spot the contradictions'.

I've managed the first couple of chapters and it is absolute torture. I can't actually make myself pick it up and read any more. Don't waste your time buying it. It's just recycled bits from the paper with a bit of extra whining thrown in.
