4.0 out of 5 stars Nice read, 26 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Yours Truly (Kindle Edition)
This book was a good read for the most part. I can understand why some may think it's silly, it actually is kind of silly. And later on in the book the main character Natalie started to grate on me. So if you want a meaty, serious book this isn't for you, but if you want cheering up and to read something that will actually make you laugh out loud in parts then this is that book.

If you've read the synopsis and the reviews you'll know it's about Natalie who gets hypnotized so she can only speak the truth when someone asks her a question. And to get un-hypnotized and save her relationship with Olly she and her friend Meg travel from Manchester to the North Yorkshire village of Little Trooley where the hypnotist "Amazing Brian" lives...

It did have some really funny parts, one been the brilliantly named "wonky faced Joe" who lives in the village of Little Trooley. And the part about Patrick Dempsey in Grey's Anatomy, i atually knew the exact scene she was on about! :D

The "hero" of the book Riley was rather meh though. I found him dull as far as love interest goes. But Meg was great, and i actually found the annoying Dionnne amusing in parts too. The truth telling by Natalie was spot on, and i was glad when it happened because she was such a pushover beforehand!

But yes Natalie did start to become annoying towards the end, to the point where i didn't really care whether she got the right man or not or if she got un-hypnotized. I cared more about what happened to the other characters to be honest. Still it's a recommended read and as far as i'm concerned it's a lesson to authors like Marian Keyes on how to do really funny without trying too hard.
