5.0 out of 5 stars I'm so glad I judged a book by its cover, 5 Nov. 2011
By 
This review is from: The Generation Game (Paperback)
I chose this book based on its name and cover, and I'm so glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I read it in a week commuting to and from work, at one point I considered staying on the bus until a later stop just so I could keep reading. I have just spent my Saturday afternoon reading in order to finish it, something I never spend my Saturdays doing!

I love the repeated sentiments throughout this book, the references to Helena, to Lucas, particuarly as a speck of stardust. Each time I read it I felt the emotion come alive from Philippa. I loved that the author described Philippa's early days so vividly, the way she handled the upset of her mother leaving, the close family created despite it all with all those people in her life. I loved the name Wink, the Generation Game experience, the trip to London for the Royal Wedding. I couldn't help but picture Bob Sugar in my head as Rob Brydon's Uncle Bryn from Gavin and Stacey. Wink I imagined as the elderly female from the Royle Family (a programme I have never watched therefore I don't know who she is).

This book deals with such a wide range of situations and emotions. Very enjoyable and very touching. I would certainly recommend it.
