i'm a big fan of JO Brand and also used to be a psychiatric nurse. i found this book funny and well written. you can't help but feel sorry for the daughter who feels only Morissey can understand her predicament, and also the husband trying to cope with his wifw Gina who has the mental ilness. you find yourself laughing then feeling guilty for laughing at the whole surreal situation. but i found it accurate as to how frustrating, funny and emotional mental illness is to both the patient and the family.

It's the first book I've wanted to read all through in a long while. It's a lot like the great teenage books that are around , but for grown ups!. I am the same age as Alice and have been taken back to my youth in a mostly lovely nostalgic way.I was and am a big fan of Morissey, but after reading this book a bigger fan of Jo Brand. Hope more are on the way!.

Format: Hardcover
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's a bit slow to start but then it races along in very entertaining fashion. I was also surprised and delighted with the ending because I couldn't see how she was going to finish the story satisfactorily. But she did it brilliantly and with a superb flourish!

However, I think Jo's editor needs to to sort out a couple of the glaring anomalies before it comes out in paperback. The 'coupling' takes place in the sitting room and yet later on there's a mention of it having happened in the bedroom. See also page 146 where Alice's name miraculously changes to Gina and then back again. And somehow at one point Alice is first 19 and then suddenly 18 years old. Tut, tut - it's the editor's job to spot this kind of thing! (I know I'm being pedantic but when you read the book in one sitting as I did, you tend to notice that kind of thing).

A great read, though. Well done, Jo.

I read 'The more you Ignore me' in two days, i couldn't put the book down. It's one of those books where you have no clue what's coming around the corner, it kept suprising me time and time again.
The characters are likeable, it's funny, sad at times and even quite eye opening!
Yep, i loved it...and ya know, i think i may become a Morrissey fan now!

I was given a signed copy of this book for my birthday. I am not a big fan of Joe Brand humour,I certainly would not watch her stand up routines, but I do not mind her as a person. Summed up by her words on the flyleaf of my copy " I don't like you either Love Joe Brand". The book started with great promise but fizzled out towards the end. I rather got the feeling that Joe was being pressurized to finish the book by the publisher, so the ending was rushed and ill thought out, It did not come together properly for me. All in all I was disappointed as I had expected more than I got. Not sure if it would encourage me to read any of her other works.

I like Jo Brands humour, but it is not translated into this book. It has all the literary merit of a story one may expect to find serialised in a teen magazine. Indeed it reads like it has been written by some precocious pubescent under the covers by torch light, this would at least excuse the glaring continuity errors. The manuscript would surely never have made it past a publishers post room had it not been for the celeb name upon it. I urge all half accomplished writers staring at rejected offerings not to read this published turgid prose, it will only add to the feelings of injustice.

As a Morrissey fan, and a stand up comedy fan, I bought this with great expectations (the feeling not the book).

I really wanted to like and had to force myself to read it after three or four false starts. I got to about page 150 and I think it's time to call it a day.

It's a very basic story with little creative use of language which seems to just be going through the motions. My biggest problem is I don't know who this is aimed at?

I suspect it isn't aimed at twentysomething men but it appears to be targeted solely at teenage girls in the 80s, a hard demographic to reach.

I don't think there is an audience for this book and it's a shame because it promised so much.

This book is an absolute must for fans of Ms Brand , and if they have the good fortune to be Morrissey fans - all the better! Top read for the beach if you don't mind strange looks when you laugh out loud.
