3.0 out of 5 stars Now an authentic review, 6 Nov 2013
This review is from: A Snid Of Milk (Kindle Edition)
This is a pleasant diverting read. Gary is writing from a liverpool perspective which makes a refreshing change. Some of it is very funny but it is obvious he has written some of his own reviews. I forgive him, you've got to get the ball rolling.

4.0 out of 5 stars A handy companion piece to followers of WW, 5 Jun 2013
I had been going to ww for 2 years and needed something for the final push. I made target and I am using Beck to maintain weightloss. This is a very sensible and reassuring book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for putting you to sleep, 12 Dec 2012
If you want a light read to settle you down for a good night's rest, buy this book. The price is very reasonable. Try to ignore the entries that appear to rely on negative stereotypes and you will have fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun, 10 Mar 2012
This was a nice lighthearted read. It's a pity that the relationships between men and women were so full of misunderstandings. The sex is very coy and without the gory details. No gay characters on board...really? Noone got a std...come come this was the 70's. Never mind the french resto scene was worthy Bryson himself.

3.0 out of 5 stars He shouldn't have bothered, 13 Jan 2010
I heard the author interviewed on the radio and was keen to buy the book based on the radio show. I was rather disappointed, the articles are hopelessly out of date and I feel it was a bit of a missed opportunity.

Many of the articles were written a long time ago and while there is certainly an interest in reading about the perspectives of for example, Notting Hill when it was just starting to become gentifried and what St Tropez was like in the 1960's. A little introduction by the author before each article and perhaps a retrospective of what had changed since the article was written would have helped but the simple matter is that they are not that entertaining in the first place and rather dry.

The whole book has the feeling that it was an idea of the publishers to dredge up old articles and put them together in a book like the literary equivalent of a compilation album of a well-known groups less well known (for good reason) songs.

However I still admire Michael Frayn and wish him well but I feel he shouldn't have been talked into this.
