Endearing and entertaining,
This review is from: Liz Jones's Diary: How One Single Girl Got Married (Paperback)
I first read Liz Jones in her Mail on Sunday newspaper column and the good news is that her book is just as witty and poignant as her journalism. Some people may be put off by her hedonistic attitude to life (I never know whether her penchance for organic rainwater is a joke or not) but anyone who is a fan of Carrie Bradshaw or Bridget Jones will find much to appreciate here. The difference is of course that Liz Jones is for real.
I particularly like her descriptions of her cats and her eye for detail. She's not afraid to mock either herself or her closest friends and I burst into laughter when reading about her husband's trainer collection and her obssession with respecting the "civil rights" of her cats.
But this diary is something of a rollercoaster ride of emotion too as Jones must decide whether she is willing to sacrifice her eccentric, single life for a chance of married bliss and faces the dilemma of whether she has left it too late to have children. Her vulnerability and perfect prose make this book something of a gem. It is summer reading to savour.
