Product Description

Review

‘I absolutely, genuinely loved The Trials of Tiffany Trott. It’s quite a while since I enjoyed a book this much. To be frank I wish I’d written it myself. It’s funny, charming, upbeat and unputdownable. Acutely observed and so well written. I was completely diverted and entertained. It deserves to do fantastically well.’
MARIAN KEYES

From the Back Cover

AN ENGAGING FIRST NOVEL THAT TAKES A HUMOROUS LOOK AT THE EVER-GROWING SINGLES SCENE, AND THE DILEMMA OF SUCCESSFUL THIRTY-SOMETHING WOMEN TRYING AND OFTEN FAILING TO 'HAVE IT ALL.'

Tiffany Trott is attractive, eligible and sparky – so why is she ( as her bossy best friend puts it) a 'complete failure with men'? Stung into indignant action, she decides she’ll hunt down Mr Right herself – or even Mr All Right, who's got to be better than the Mr Catastrophics who litter her recent past. So begins Tiffany's eventful odyssey through the Love Jungle. From blindingly bland dates to introduction agencies, small ads and Club Med, Tiffany tries the lot in her quest for a mate. But as she ponders her puzzling lack of a life partner, Tiffany watches her friend face problems of their own – and begins to wonder whether marriage and motherhood is quite what she wants after all . . . .

As a self help author and teacher, novels are a rare find on my bookshelf. I picked up Tiffanny Trott as I was settling down to a bath in a friend's house having realised I'd left my own soul searching tome in my bedroom. Half an hour later, the bathwater had gone cold, the pages were wet and I was suffering from terminal laughing tummy. Needless to say I consumed the rest of the book within 24 hours. Isabel Wolff is a very very funny woman and that's a compliment because it's rare that any book makes me laugh out loud throughout.
Tiffanny Trott is one of those splendidly, belly achingly funny reads because it is so true to life. Ms Trott is riddled with the desperation, and self-deprecating attitudes of the many clients who consult me because they can't find a man. Most of my female 30-something-there-are-no-men-out-there friends have had dalliances with men that bear a frightening resemblance to Wolff's male characters.
I suspect that Isabel Wolff has done some serious research on this subject if not experienced many of the situations herself in some roundabout way.
Reading this book was like spending quality time with those friends you constantly seek out because they are so amusing. The last author who had that affect on me was Tom Sharpe.
I absolutely loved the 'real thought/actual statement' style that Wolff uses. Tiffany comes out with outrageously funny and cuttingly true comments about people [the kind of things one thinks but dares not say] and just as the reader is shocked by her foot-in-mouth attitude, it is followed by the words 'I didn't really say that' and a completely bland statement of the sort one is expected to say but isn't in any way true.

The Trials of Tiffany Trott is the funniest book I have ever read. I have actually read it three times which is unusual because I put a lot of books down half way through and never pick them up again. Tiffany's funniest date (I thought) was with the guy who insisted on dragging her along to an 'all you can eat for a fiver' eaterie - but all her dates were pretty hillarious. One reviewer said that you'd have to understand the London social scene to appreciate this book but I strongly disagree. I have never lived in London and I think the social scene is pretty much the same in every city - there are certainly dodgy men in every city anyway! Well done Isobel Wolff - you truly are hillarious!

I ADORED this book! I've just read it and my husband hasn't got a sane word out of me for 2 days. It's really whacky - the humour is so clever, and it's so realistic too. I was absolutely hooked on what would happen to Tiffany from the moment she went on her first blind date with the appalling banker. I loved her character - very indignant and ferocious at times, but always SO polite, though she lets us know the vicious things she's thinking about the men she meets. But she's very sympathetic too and I think the book has real heart as well as many, many laughs. I loved it.

This is the funniest book that Wolff has written. If you were mad about Minty, you'll be troppo over Tiffany. Poor old Tiffany, 37 years old and still single! Follow Tiffany through her torture as she tries to find true love and commitment; through the singles dinners, personal columns and weddings (of other people) she trawls and reminds me of why I'm single. A laugh a minute.

This book is just the most fantastic read I've had for ages. In fact, as a mature student with not much cash, I'm grateful to the author becuase she saved me money - I preferred to stay in and read about Tiffany (and also Minty) than to go out. A cast of characters so vivid I felt I'd met them - WONDERFUL dialogue, and a compelling and totally unpredictable story line which had me gripped from page one. Tiffany Trott has so many really memorable scenes - but is worth reading for the mobile phone on the bus scene alone. But I laughed out loud many many times, and I found this book far far funnier than the tedious Bridget, and far more original too. It's head and shoulders above anything else in the same genre that I've read. So I immediately went out and bought Minty, which I also loved.

I hardly ever laugh out loud at books but this book had me doing just that on almost every page. Its extremely well written and very witty with a kind of whacky charm. I loved the lesbian mothers at the birthing classes and the scenes at Club Med. There are times when you really want to shake Tiffany or kick her on the shins, but you can't help admiring her, and even though she meets a number of awful men on her blind dates, the book is never ever depressing. It has a wide emotional range, - the birth of Sally's baby scene had me in floods. And I loved the hero, Seriously Successful, and the clever twist in the tale at the end. An unusually funny and very uplifting read.

Isabel Wolff has a fantastic style and a way of making her heroines so realistic and believable. Tiffany Trott gives hope to all those who fear being left on the shelf. She is charming and funny, so easy to identify with and as she is once again dumped by the latest in a long line of "committophobes" she goes on a string of "bland" dates, advertises in lonely hearts and tries speed dating to find the man of her dreams. Unfortunately the man of her dreams "Seriously Successful" is not all he seems. As you follow her quest for the happy ever after, you will be unable to put this book down for a minute!
