Fab Frenchie! I loved it!,
This review is from: A Tiny Bit Marvellous (Paperback)
Though i do like Dawn French I had serious doubts as to whether i would like any of her novels, just the idea was off putting as so much of what Dawn does is layered with facial expression/body language/tone. I just felt the wonder that is her would not carry forward into her writing. Boy was i mistaken even though the first pages tried to convince me otherwise with the over the top mellodramatic teen diary. But i pushed passed and got to the other members of the family's diary pages. I thought it was so so and then i got hooked. I laughed. I cringed. I was moved. I got so involued in the story that i stop thinking "crap" and started thing "oh boy is there anything dawn french cannot do" because this is brilliant!!! I whole hearted recommend this book. It may not be completely realistic but its fun and it shows the dynamatics of a loving flawed family.
I loved it!!
