Book Description

"Fun, frivolous and full of embarrassing moments, it also gives a wonderful insight into the world of public relations." The Sun

"Charlotte Ashby's first novel is a heady mix of Bridget Jones and Jilly Cooper." Gloucestershire Echo

Imagine if you had emailed a good friend almost daily, with graphic descriptions of every one night stand, workplace cock up, unrequited crush and ungenerous thought - a sort of e-confessional. And what if all those emails got into the wrong hands?

It all looked so rosy for the hapless Emily Brighouse, supposedly a high flying PR girl, living in London, behaving like any other single, 20 something woman, only much worse. But 8 years after graduation, she’s about to be sacked, evicted from her flat and has just been served with an ASBO. 8am on the morning of her 29th birthday, she is limping down Bethnal Green High Street after another one night stand, wearing only one shoe. And she is about to find out that her email confessor is not entirely who she thought they were.

This is a romantic comedy which lifts the lid on the madcap world of public relations and what ‘girls like us’ really get up to.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a corker! 17 Feb. 2014
Golly! This brought it all back... The importance of keeping the front step tidy(ish) when all within is student slatterny (is there such a word?), The bizarrity (there's another) with which one unbelievable, and yet inevitable, thing pushes in upon another... And brought bang up to date with the noisome world of PR, the cacophony of email, and the pc use of 'they' instead of 'he' or 'she' (my black beast.)
Charlotte Ashby surely knows her PR stuff, and writes as though she has careered down each and every curious alley (but I guess that's because she is a good writer!)
This is a grand tale, a great and racy read: they've all been down this pit, from Hogarth to Hamilton, Rowlandson to Maclaren Ross. The sleeze as only the young on the London razzle can know it.
Buy this book, laugh, cry, wonder aghast, and laugh again... And then wait, bereft, for Charlotte Ashby's next book.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fabulous read, particularly the brilliantly comedic dialogue. Loved all the characters, reminded me of my time living in London. The PR / office bits had me laughing out loud. They should make this into a film or TV series. When can we get the next instalment?

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!! 18 Feb. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This has to be one of the most hilarious novels I have read in a while! Emily could certainly give Bridget Jones a run for her money in the hapless stakes! A most excellent, light-hearted read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! 11 Aug. 2014
By Agi
I haven't heard about Girls Like Us before and after reading it I am really not sure why. As soon as I have started reading this book I couldn't put it down and it had me in giggles in some of the most inappropriate moments, having people looking at me in a strange way. Don't read this on a bus/tube/etc as you will snort with laughter at the antics of our main heroes. Be warned :)
Girls Like Us is Charlotte Ashby's debut novel and I can tell you that I am already waiting for her next one!

Emily spends a lot of her time fuelled with booze and partying with her best friend Bella. They love to throw parties at their rented flat and it finally ends with an... yes, ASBO. She also works in PR and a lot of her work - time she spends disguised as mosquito and sending many press releases. One of her account for National Sausage Weeks goes belly up when not the right press release is being sent by Anoushka, Emily's working colleague, and well, it doesn't look good for Emily. But then her best mail - pal from radio steps in and saves the day and Emily's job.
The best mail - pal that Emily thought was a woman and used to send her emails telling everything what she used to do, and Emily tends to do many embarrassing things. Jemima turns out to be a Jeremy and have a girlfriend, and in some way or other Emily finds herself with her so - called boyfriend Charlie to be a guest of Jeremy, and his father in their mansion up North.

Oh my God, I can't tell you more about the plot because it is packed with action and there is something new happening on every page and I don't want to spoil this book for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I've read in a long time 16 Feb. 2014
I cannot recommend this book enough. Ridiculously funny story-line yet embarrassingly relatable, it left me nearly in tears with laughter. A very quick and easy read. NEEDS to be made into a film!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on the sequel 18 Feb. 2014
The only negative thing I have to say about this book is that I read it far too quickly! I need a friend like Emily in my life. This is a brilliant read and had me in stitches. The way Charlotte Ashby sets the comedic scene make you feel like are witnessing the chaos that is Emily’s life first hand. I want the next instalment now….

A wonderfully frivolous escape story but unusually the heroine is a really kind girl maintaining the moral high ground (well sort of) most of the time. Clever witty and a delicious sense that the author is actually teasing the genre but no less enjoyable for that. Worcester to London simply flew by on the train!
