Very thought provoking and humorous
on 30 March 2000
I read this book in one day which, as a mother of 2 children shows a certain amount of interest! Many passages made me laugh so much but this was then followed by a certain amount of guilt at laughing at another person's distress. There were times when I found it very upsetting that someone so attractive (see back cover) could be so 'upset' but the book is so beautifully written that one doesn't feel maudling too much. I have thought more about this book since I finished it than another book for some time. I guess if I had to critise it at all it would be because I felt it was somewhat disjointed in the manner in which it was written. I felt that the book lacked continuity and I would have liked to hear more about how her husband and children coped. I would so much like to hear how she is doing now. One of the best books I have ever read.
