Book Description

22 Jan 2009

We all know about the jungle of 'dating'. But once you've found your 'special' friend you'll have to pretend you like their taste in music, be nice to their mother and pick up their socks, and that's only year one.

By the time you get into grumpy old middle-aged land, you're firmly on farting terms and over-familiarity has bedded in. The only thing to do with the whole business is to laugh over it, which is the idea of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute hoot! 11 Feb 2009
By Mags057
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am normally sceptical about reviews that state a book was 'a laugh a minute' but in this case it is so true. It isn't just for oldies either. I gave it to my 28 year old daughter and she loved it as well, particularly as she has recently attended several 'hen' celebrations and could relate to everything Jenny and Judith said. Sheer, unadulterated fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Right on my wavelength 30 Mar 2009
Format:Hardcover
Absolutely hilarious, embarrassingly so - especially when you are on a very busy plane to Vienna and the bloke beside you thinks you're choking on your bread roll. I was rather alarmed at just how much of it rang true, thus confiming my status as being 50% of a fully fledged G.O.C. *sigh* I'm only 35.....

4.0 out of 5 stars light and funny reading 23 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Depending on a personal sense of humour and if you need some cheering up - particularily ourdays when all on the media looks -sadly so- gloom and doom this is a funny book.
As it also becomes obvious we reach the end of the marriage era- the underline of some issues in the book may give an insight into why couples avoid life time commitements.

I will recommend this book - is not designed for those in fear that if they think or read 'grumpy' lines they may be perceived as moaners. This funny book looks at differences between sexes - if you aim not to take it seriously but have a laugh/smile/grin/ about it does makes a relaxing read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grumpy Old Couples made me laugh outright 11 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a book for women to give women a jolly good laugh, I lay in bed beside my husband at night both reading and I would laugh out loud at the honesty and home truths. Brilliant, I highly recommend it to any women.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only OK. 8 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was looking forward to a good laugh and a giggle. It started off exactly that - laughed out loud a few times and then it gradually just became a bit depressing. I think it could have still been very funny with a bit more positivity in it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 4 Mar 2014
By shaz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Love Jenny Éclair and really enjoyed the last book that I read of hers. I fancied something light-hearted and easy to pick up in short bursts. The book fulfilled the short bursts aspect, but I had no desire to keep returning to it. I found it boring and gave up after the first few pages. The book didn't hold my interest at all and was a very disappointing buy.

So true, so funny! Word of warning do not read this in a hospital waiting room as people give you funny looks when you are sitting on your own crying with laughter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Vanilla slices
I bought it as I like Jenny Eclair - but it's not the same as having a good novel to read. It's another dip into one.
I wouldn't buy it as a present - sorry Jenny! Read more

This was good. Not quite as funny as Grumpy Old Men and Grumpy Old Women but it did have some parts that made me laugh out loud. Well worth reading.
