Just put it down after one massive read
on 2 February 2013
For the first couple of days of the story, I just really laughed at the comedy which was so funny and well-observed I thought: 'Has this man been in my house?' I can't think when I've laughed as much at a novel. But then on the third day, there was the - ahem - licking incident, which took me by surprise and from there the story just really took off and I started turning the pages at speed. The book is very very slick. You start reading, and it's very hard to stop. To be honest, I slightly forgot the Learn Love angle, so that, only at the end did I go back and notice that, for example, Thursday really nailed the subject of parents and therapy, albeit in a very light Bridget Jones sort of way. It's actually a really clever book, exceptionally well-written, masquerading as fluffy chick lit. By the last couple of days of the action, I'd started to care about the characters so that when the climax came I was really holding my breath. And then at the end I felt... I won't say. I don't want to give away how it finishes. Just read the book! Mr Clover, I loved it. I felt entertained, I felt moved, I felt inspired. I'll tell all my friends. And I wish you'd write another column, but if you won't, please please get writing another one of these. We need more!
