Awful, 4 Aug 2010
Awful book - the author is obsessed with categorising everthing and everyone in what comes across as a very patronising snooty way.
Her inaccuracies about life in northern England are astonishing for someone supposedly having researched the English for this book. And she has an unhealthy obsession with middle-middles and upper-middles are was so repetitive that it bored me in teh extreme.
This could have been a really interesting book but it turned out to be one of the very few books that I couldn't be bothered to finish - a true rarity. Terrible.
