Do blondes really have more fun? When the usually brunette and terminally single Patti Stillwell wakes up to find that her hair has mysteriously turned blond overnight, her whole life changes. Suddenly men are taking notice of her - lots of very cute men. And so she takes the opportunity to have the time of her life. But what happens when the blond wears off - will she hit the (bleach) bottle or realise that it's what's on the inside that counts?

5.0 out of 5 stars Hysterical Blondeness 8 July 2012
By Jane
Format:Kindle Edition
Patricia and Pinky share the downstairs of Paul's house, he lives upstairs and Paul does all the cooking. The three are best friends living and working together.
This book is great, you are laughing one minute, shouting at Patricia or near to tears. You don't want to put the book down. An excellent read and not to be missed.

4.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly hilarious.... 23 Oct 2006
By Deborah Wiley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Are blondes really ditzier than their brunette counterparts? And do men truly find blondes more attractive?

Patricia Stillwell has spent her entire life disdaining blondes. Along with her best friends and housemates, Pinky McGee and Paul Costello, Patricia has always been the more intellectual film noir type. All that changes when Patricia participates in an experimental weight loss study- and wakes up blonde!

Patricia's whole world changes once she's blonde. Suddenly, the yummy-looking owner's son, Brett Nordquist, is noticing her and Patricia is having a blast with her newfound popularity. But what about Paul, who is starting to look more like a romantic interest than a roommate? What can a brunette do when she is struck with HYSTERICAL BLONDENESS?

Suzanne MacPherson has written a side-splitting tale about the stereotypes of the brunette versus the blonde female. While the story does nothing to eradicate those stereotypes, HYSTERICAL BLONDENESS provides numerous moments of sheer hilarity. Patricia's metamorphosis from an intelligent, thoughtful, and clear thinking brunette into a blonde only interested in money, society, and other's opinions is one guaranteed to keep the reader flipping the pages, hoping Patricia's sanity will return.

HYSTERICAL BLONDENESS also presents the reader with a moral to the story: sometimes the grass isn't greener on the other side! Patricia's journey into the uglier side of popularity and wealth teaches her some valuable lessons. Lizbeth Summers is Patricia's primary nemesis in HYSTERICAL BLONDENESS and Patricia struggles with her desire to remain who she is or become more like Lizbeth. Pinky McGee, however, steals the show! Pinky's solid, level-headed thinking help keep the storyline from wandering off into the ridiculous.

Suzanne MacPherson is definitely an author to watch out for! Creating romantic comedy that is truly humorous without being over-the-top is difficult and yet the process seems effortless while reading HYSTERICAL BLONDENESS. One word of caution while reading this book: don't read in public unless you are prepared for the funny looks you'll receive as you laugh out loud!!

1.0 out of 5 stars I'm sorry I wasted my time 17 Dec 2007
By Erin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book seemed like it would be such perfect chick lit: after years of being a few pounds overweight and a mousy brunette, Patricia joins a study for an experimental weight loss drug which not only helps her drop the weight, but temporarily alters her DNA to turn her platinum blonde. Hilarity and an unofficial social experiment are sure to ensue, right?

Wrong. Not only is this book fraught with grammatical and spelling errors, but the writing feels like an intelligent 7th grader's and there is not one original thought in the entire 384 pages. Patricia, Patty, and Paul all speak like they're from a bad 50's sitcom, with stupid nicknames, a horribly dated way of speaking, and humorless, stupid jokes. Furthermore, the main characters are offensively anti-blonde: if you were to change every blonde reference to a skin color or sexual preference reference, this novel would never have made it to bookshelves. In fact, I don't know how it did.
