5.0 out of 5 stars A superficial Daria
I found this book in a random library and bought it because of the nice look of the cover. At first glance, it's ANOTHER teen story with the same old things : teenage angst, dating, friendship... Well, boring you think, but actually it's not that at all. Planet Janet is a brilliant story of 16-years-old girl who wants to change her lifestyle. She's tired of living a...

1.0 out of 5 stars Adrian Mole, all over again
Basically, if you liked Adrian Mole then you'll love this. Reading this "diary" is just like reading Adrian Mole. Janet Bandry and Adrian Mole are so concerned with their deluded image as intellectuals that the real world flies past them. The only difference is Planet Janet is set in 2002 and Janet is, of course, female.
Janet is shallow, superficial, ungrateful...

5.0 out of 5 stars A superficial Daria, 3 Oct 2002
This review is from: Planet Janet (Paperback)
I found this book in a random library and bought it because of the nice look of the cover. At first glance, it's ANOTHER teen story with the same old things : teenage angst, dating, friendship... Well, boring you think, but actually it's not that at all. Planet Janet is a brilliant story of 16-years-old girl who wants to change her lifestyle. She's tired of living a mundane life and she really wants to make a difference in the world. With her best friend Disha, she decides to enter in the 'dark phase' which is supposed to help her experience the real aspects of life (that is to say according to her: passion, despair, romance, pain...). The book is the funniest thing I ever read, and irony is everywhere. Janet is everything she despises but is not aware of the situation. I could really identify with the character. The author keeps playing with his readers, it's a pleasure. I suggest this book to anyone who wants to read something light and funny.

Janet is shallow, superficial, ungrateful and selfish. She believes she can be profound and intellectual by dressing in black and drinking white wine. She shows no empathy towards the other characters and is easily hateable.
