Format: Paperback
The descriptions of Oxford Street in London was very good, as was the way the author described the character browsing through the department stores, lost amongst the crowds. Even if you'd never been there, you could imagine just how it might be like. However, I was disappointed in the way the central character was not very well developed. Numerous times, when she reacted to something I could not understand why, and was often surprised by her response as I did not have a feel of what she was really like. One minute the book seemed to be a typical girly novel, and then the next minute it was trying to touch on some other serious issues (eg drugs)but does not manage to do either effectively.

Format: Paperback
The Last Hope of Girls is an excellent book which tackles very serious subjects with an extremely light touch. A sensitive and intuitive writer, Boyt explores the difficulties of family life with insight and humour, creating characters that are powerful and stay in the reader's mind for a long time. The book cretaes a world in which black commedy is expertly combined with exasperation and hope. I loved it.
