This book is well written and yes the humour is definately there. However, the subject matter can only be described as DEPRESSING! A young girl stuffed by the system in a situation she has absolutely no control over, this is the stuff nightmares are made of. The list of perverts and wrongdoers is endless, I believe the author has probably put back any faith in the judicial system the police and prison service etc by about 20yrs. If you're feeling at all down and in need of cheering up this is not the book for you!

I loved the concept of this book as I did with Foetal Attraction, however the highly contrived one liners and puns are just too much to bear. To be honest I would never have read these books had I not been pregnant (FA) and then just had my first baby (MC). Totally picaresque, but a lighthearted read, good for by the pool when on holiday.

Terrible, unbelievable fiction littered with cheap jokes. If you want a funny book there are much better ones out there...look at Marian Keyes or the new Alison Kervin book called Wag's Diary. The jokes in here were Christmas Cracker style and they got in the way of the story - they never emerged from it or because of it. RUBBISH!!!!

I found this book not only irritating but also extremely unrealistic.
If you like books where everything is negative, the storyline jumps from one unbelievable event to another and your "hero" talks intelligently but acts idiotic then go ahead and read it!
Otherwise - don't bother and save your money!

This book should have a warning on it - I innocently picked it up in the bookshop (although having read her previous books I suppose I should have known better) and was wetting myself with laughter before the second page. Absolutely fantastic descriptions, the characters really come alive and Lette's wit is scintillating throughout. My only qualm is that she tries to be too outrageously funny all the time, and this can become exasperating. Also she uses needlessly long and exotic vocabulary, so have your dictionary handy. (As well as extra knickers). Reading this book has put me off having babies a bit, though. And shopping in Harrods. And men, come to think of it.

This book really made me laugh, although there were so many funny one liners it became the norm and I laughed less and less. I thinbk it pretty much sums up life in the 90's in London in a very amusing way.
