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.

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!

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!!!

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).

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

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.

After having been a faithful follower of Ms. McCarthy's blog I was very much looking forward to this book coming out.
Hillarious at times, odd perspectives you never thought of and some great responses from the offending boyfriend make it a fantastic read.
Ther are so many situations she brings you into that you think "I have been there", and imagine the men are thinking "God, I did that".
A wonderful no stress read but enough connected to reality not to make it trite.
Certainly not chic lit, just a woman's perspective.

this book is making me laugh a big lot. i'm a huge fan of the eponymous (?) blog anyway, and this nicely fills in the story in between the posts. it's arranged thematically, so it explores, in depth, one particular aspect of tw@tdom at a time. a must for all long-suffering women.
if only it had been available when i was courting ...
(and thanks to rachel, i now understand why amazon has been rejecting my comments for the past few days!)
