5.0 out of 5 stars great fun, 30 Dec 2012
My 11 year old daughter and I have had such fun playing this tonight. We were trying it out so we knew the rules for when our guests come tomorrow night. We are sure that all the guests and the rest of our family will love this game, as we didn't want to stop. Older children can play on an equal level with adults, so it's much better than games like Trivial pursuit when you can't go anywhere unless you know one specific answer. Excellent game.

If you don't enjoy reading about a man trying to seduce another man, then there's not many pages of this book left to interest you.

I found the main character to be very unusual - I kept assuming she was an older child, but then when the author occassionally told us her age, it always seemed far far too young. The whole part about the rabbit - I just couldn't suspend disbelief. Too many coincidences, and even the relationship with Jenny Penny seemed flawed in the second half of the book. I felt she was trying to be politically correct having so many homosexual characters and they just didn't seem real (apart from Nancy who was perhaps the… Read more
