4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun!, 30 Dec. 2008
This review is from: The Desperate Diary of a Country Housewife (Paperback)
With a title like The Desperate Diary of a Country Housewife, you just know you're in for a laugh with this book. This is the tale of Martha Mole and her family. At the beginning of the story they're living in London, but Martha dreams of a better life out in the country with fresh air, low crime levels, good schools and so on. Finally managing to persuade her husband, the Mole family move to Paradise. A big beautiful house with stunning views, Martha is incredibly happy to start with, but cracks soon begin to form.

What with the multitude of slugs in the garden, the collapsing kitchen ceiling and trying to make friends with the Stepford mums, Martha soon craves an outlet for her frustrations. Her newspaper column is a resounding success, but as she spills the beans on her new life and the people around her, she begins to feel traitorous... and what would happen if someone found out it was her writing the column? Especially as she's dished the dirt on her not-insignificant crush on the sexy builder who's transforming her home into a dream one...

What makes this book so funny is its realism. Whatever your lifestyle, you'll be able to relate to Martha and her dilemmas and have a good giggle. The style of writing is easy to follow and you'll whizz through the book in no time at all, especially because you won't want to put it down! A really fun romp!
