1.0 out of 5 stars Far fetched and a wee bit irritating, 13 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
SPOILER ALERT!!!
Although this book is enjoyable on a very superficial level, the story is just pure fantasy and most of the characters (especially wimpy Hannah) aren't very likeable. You get to choose from:

Hannah - married her husband for financial security (so she gets to swank around a villa in the south of France whilst loving her part time job in a local school..). Flirts with her fiances brother whilst pregnant then wonders why he's angry - hello? Are we supposed to sympathise with her? Her chief complaint seems to be her husband is boring. Continues to flirt 15 years later whilst denying she is. If I was married to her I'd be a bit peeved.

Cliff (the husband) - cast as a pantomime villain with a hastily added in rape scene for full affect but hard not to feel sorry for the bloke, when his wife and brother are panting around each other in front of him.

James (the brother) - sketched broadly as a thoroughly lovely bloke (and good looking, which helps) but essentially is trying to nab his brothers wife. Hard to believe he's that nice a bloke...

Jill (the sister) - why would anyone want to go on holiday with such a shallow, annoying, selfish brat (who turns into a self sacrificing angel at the end. As you would).

Tristan - arguably the one likeable character but why would a wealthy, talented, handsome single bloke go on holiday with this motley crew?

The kids - just annoying and unbelievable. Appearing when needed for a story prop then disappearing conveniently whenever adult conversation is going on. As of course all 11 yr olds do.

The ending - as believable as fairies. Moving to the other side of the world? With an 11 yr old? Without his dad ? Really ?

5.0 out of 5 stars The dogs bo**ocks, 26 April 2004
This review is from: Underdog (Audio CD)
You won't need to use the >> button 'cause from the first track to thelast this is deep, accessible, lyrical house at its best and you won'twant to skip a single track. Upbeat enough to keep you dancing in yourbedroom but smooth enough to leave playing after you crash. Already beinga fan of Lazy Dog I expected nothing less from Jay and I wasn'tdisappointed. One that will stay in the cd player for months.
