1.0 out of 5 stars get this crap off amazon, 2 Mar 2013
What the hell is this? What an awful, obnoxious, offensive t-shirt. I can imagine the smug b*stards walking around in this t-shirt, while their wives, girlfriends, sisters, female friends are wondering what the hell is going on... is it supposed to be funny or ironic? Well, it's not. And for all the women who do experience violence at the hands of idiots who actually can get locked up for doing this, I want to say sorry that these IDIOTS who are selling this, don't know the boundaries of what is acceptable or not. Amazon, shame on you for letting this kind of crap be sold on your site

I want to rate this zero stars, but Amazon will not let me

I like her main character Leonard, he is very endearing. He has a wonderful character, I like the `buggers' and `loves' scattered through the narrative, the small inflections in his personality that give him depth and made me warm to him so. The story is a real intrigue. From the moment Leonard finds the blue handbag in the first chapter, I had such a drive to know more.

The Blue Handbag is such a lovely read. I really recommend it.
