Sensibly categorised and filled with observations and recommendations, this is the ultimate field guide to that most irritating of the species: the Twat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny 15 Oct 2007
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book as a present for my English girlfriend because she says I am a 'muppet' and I wanted to make her see that she is not alone in putting up with someone like me.

She liked the book very much and she kept laughing when she was reading it. So I read it too. And I must agree that it is very funny.

A very good present, because my girlfriend is happy, and so I am very happy too, and we are both pleased, she because she thinks I am like the man in the book but not as bad and me because I secretly know I am much, much worse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! 14 Oct 2010
By Carol
Format:Hardcover
Bought this for a friend who is going through a bad time with her partner and yes i'm sure the writer of this book has personally had a relationship with him too.

Haven't yet given this to my friend but i'm sure it will put a smile on her face.
It is so funny and that is only from reading a few pages. Definately going to have to borrow it once she has read it. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest read 30 Aug 2010
By Slinky1
Format:Hardcover
I ordered this book as the title caught my eye, I didnt bank on it being such a great book. The funniest read ive had for a long time, I took the book on holiday and almost laughed myself off the lounger, my friends were queueing up to borrow it after me. Have passed it on now but the memories will stay forever. Its a book that all women will relate to at some point. Buy it, you wont be dissapointed!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and charming 8 Oct 2007
Format:Hardcover
Zoe's multi-award winning blog about her life with her boyfriend and three children is compulsive daily reading for thousands of people. You've got to love a woman who thinks the kitchen is somewhere you pass through in order to get another bottle of red wine from the garage.

Now she's published the whole saga as a book so even more people can enjoy her witty writing about life with a man who adores her, and whom she clearly loves dearly - but who frequently makes her want to curl up with embarassment or just throw crockery, such is his blokey ability to strike up immediate and lengthy conversations with absolutely anyone, especially workmen paid by the hour to get on with jobs, dress exclusively in donated T shirts turned insideout to cover the splatter-marks and stains, snore like a widerbeest with a head cold, fill the fridge with empty jars and stuff the house with more gadgetry than Dixons sale. But he does all the cooking, and he makes her laugh. And without him, this marvellous book would not exist, which would be a great shame, especially as we're nearing Christmas.

Faithfully recording his every foible and bon mot for posterity, Zoe has produced a book that will provoke screams of laughter and nods of recognition from anyone who lives with, loves or is thinking of adopting a Tw@t of their own. ( Reviewers beware: Amazon won't let you say the word in the title in your review. Yes, I know, it's stupid.)

I could go on, but I won't. Buy the book, it's fab . (And buy it before your mates do, so you can pass off the funny stories about the Tw@t, and his hilarious utterances as your own down the pub. Some of the things he has said and done are surely destined to become legend).

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the book I needed... 31 Oct 2007
Format:Hardcover
... to fix my workbench with the wobbly leg in my shed. Just the right thickness, and the superior hardback qualities give the firmness and durability that I require.

BUT! Having read the book first, I was delighted to find that Zoe McCarthy has come up with a VERY funny read of the highest quality, which I cannot prize away from the hands of my wife who now regards the title as the new handbook for her life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zoe and the Tw@T 29 Nov 2007
Format:Hardcover
I have been reading this book and I have to say that Zoe's trials and tribulations of daily life with her boyfriend are funny, erudite and downright hilarious.

It is the book of the award winning blog of the same name.

I have to say I haven't laughed this much since I was a kid, and went into complete giggles ending up with me almost having an asthmatic attack halfway through. You will end up with a grin on your face.
Even if you are happy with your life you need to buy this book as there are gems nearly on every page for your delight. A well presented and delightful trip through a relationship with a tw@t

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny 5 Dec 2007
Format:Hardcover
There are so many reasons why this book is so good; it's well written, the characters are great, it's highly amusing but the main reason is that it is all true. It contains so many funny stories about why Zoe has spent the last several years pulling her hair out over the actions of her boyfriend.

It is this love/irritated-by relationship that makes the book so enjoyable and means men and women will both get something different out of reading it.

Women will be able to read it and think, "My boyfriend does that," and men will be able to read it and think, "I do that."

I was laughing the whole time I was reading it. I can really recommend buying this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings you some peace of mind really... 2 Nov 2007
Format:Hardcover
Apart from a very good laugh I got some peace of mind with it. I know it may sound selfish but there is some comfort in knowing that men are pretty much all the same (if you're kicking one out the house expecting to find your ideal man, well...buy this book).

I related to so many of the stories I couldn't put it down until I finished. It'll make a good (down-to-earth) present to all your girlfriends this christmas.
