    5.0 out of 5 stars The Darker Side of Mummy Misfit - Amanda Egan 1 Sept. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I was trying to save reading Amanda's `The Darker Side of Mummy Misfit' for a train journey, A) because I knew I would be totally engrossed for the duration of the journey, especially after reading `The Diary of a Mummy Misfit' and B) so I wouldn't have to engage in conversation with my aisle seat passenger. However, temptation just had to keep tapping away at me, and to be honest, I couldn't bear it any longer and gave into it, just to get it off my back!
    So, here I am, earlier than anticipated, giving `The Darker Side of Mummy Misfit' a rating, of 8* Yes, that's right, one more extra star than I gave `The Diary of a Mummy Misfit!' Why? Because it truly deserves it! I know technically we can only give a maximum of 5 stars, but hey, this book, and `The Diary' is TV material, I'm telling you!!!
    I couldn't wait to continue with Libby's story and wow, was I in for a treat!! Just like `The Diary' we have real, laugh out loud, acerbic wit and antics from Fenella. And Libby's son, Max is just as bad - good lad! If I could quote just a few of these razor sharp witty lines here, I would do, but that wouldn't be fair and it would just spoil the impact of the humour for you, so you're going to have to read the book yourself! The fabulous Mrs S, Libby's next door neighbour, is just adorable, as ever, and we are introduced to some new characters, which you just can't help, but like. The upper class bitches/mothers at the school are still carrying on with their shenanigans and competing for the best bitch prize. And oh boy, are they are on top form! Libby does show a darker side to herself in this sequel but I have to say, I've every respect for her. There are a few surprises in this book which I wasn't expecting in the least, and found it playing with my emotions!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous sequel. 29 Dec. 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This sequel did not disappoint me at all. In fact, I absolutely loved it. As a reader, you can't help but have expectations of a sequel. I can honestly say that this was everything that I wanted it to be and more!

    In the first book, Libby and husband Ned, put their son into private school and made some wonderful friends, but met some truly awful, snobby people along the way too. At the end of the novel, they came into some money and were able to finally afford to do the things that the other families at the school did. Libby had always wanted a second child and to her delight became pregnant.

    In The Darker Side, Libby and hilarious friend Fenella start their pregnancies together, while still helping to fundraise at the school. They meet and befriend Patience, a single mom who is automatically disapproved of by most of the parents at the school. When they find out her background, they keep it up their sleeves for using at a time in the future when it is needed most.

    While Libby and her family can now afford to do things that she craved in the past, she almost feels that her life being broke but happy, was preferable. In this novel, her friendships, marriage and family are put to the test with lots of bumps along the way.

    I laughed so hard at times I thought I was going to wet myself (sorry to share that with you but I felt that I must!) I also cried a lot at this book. It contained a real rollercoaster of emotions and anyone who has been through the things that Libby went through in this book would empathise sincerely with her and want to personally help her through her ups and downs.

    I felt that I was inside Libby and Fenella's friendship. They were both hilarious but really good strong friends who understood each other so well.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy sequel 22 Dec. 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Libby is back in the sequel in this mummy lit genre. She is pregnant, rich and more determined than ever to survive the 'memeemies' to give her son Max the best prep school education money can buy. Now they don't have to struggle for money, and Libby is head of CCL, the school's charitable arm, surely it is all plain sailing now?

    This sequel lives up to its title, showing the darker side of Libby's world. When tragedy strikes, Libby feels angry, upset and dare I say it....bitchy?? This once lovely woman strikes out, feeling resentment, jealousy and detachment from those around her as she struggles to find her footing in this new life. It's true what they say, money can't buy you happiness, and as Libby flounders and then freefalls into new territories, she truly becomes a 'mummy misfit.'

    This book is an excellent sequel, it flows well from the first awesome book, it is another funny narrative in the world of 'mummy lit', once again exposes the cynical world of yummy mummies, and their plethora of botox, nannies, 4 x 4s and designer bitch fests. But this book surpasses the first in my eyes, as it deals with sensitive issues in a tender voice whilst retaining its humour and realistic character progression.

    I don't want to write a spoiler review, those annoy me and I feel do the book no justice, but if you have not read the first, buy both, take a day off and delve in.

    Books, like these two especially, prove to me just how much 'mummy lit' is unjustly underrated and written off as not being 'literary' and 'highbrow' enough.

    It's funny, but it felt like the first book rehashed really with a little bit of plot added. If it's cheap and you liked the first one buy it but otherwise give it a miss.
