I wouldn`t say i`m a great fan of jo brand, but this book arrived in the post yesterday morning, i picked it up, opened it, started to read - and then went back to bed with a cup of coffee - and this book. I had to force myself to put it down a couple of hours later, and get up. I finished it last night. It had me laughing out loud, and that`s no easy achievement for a book, i can tell you ! I thought it was hilarious ! As you read, you can hear jo brand in your head, in that couldn`t- care- less-never-changes-tone- droning voice of hers,saying the words. I love how this woman always takes the p... out of herself before she starts on anyone else - and never takes it out of anybody who doesn`t deserve it. I will definately buy another of her books, this cheered me up no end.
Top marks for this one !

This is one of the best books I have ever bought. I have re-read it time and time again (which I never usually do with books) and every time I have ended up with pains in my sides from laughing. I am so sad to see that it's not available to buy new anymore because it is such a loss to members of humanity with a sense of humor. Even if you don't like Jo Brand BUY THIS BOOK, you will not regret it.
Word of caution: not for the faint hearted: you may get a heart attack from laughter!
