Why did I bother?,
This review is from: Girl Least Likely To: 30 years of fashion, fasting and Fleet Street (Kindle Edition)
I didn't hold out much hope for this, but in a moment of weakness I thought I would give Ms Jones the benefit of the doubt. After all, she apparently won an award for her 'writing' last year. Well, they do say no good deed goes unpublished. The book (I use the term loosely) is poorly written, consisting mainly of rehashes of material that has appeared in her columns since her ignominious departure from Exmoor. The only plus point to having this book is that it makes it easy to spot all the contradictory claims she makes about her life and everything that happens in it. I do pity her family, as she has an almost autistic inability to recognise subjects that just should NOT be discussed outside the family circle. One could forgive that if she had anything positive to say about her family, but no, like every other area of her life, it's all unremitting nastiness, ingratitude and misery. With Liz in the role of martyr, naturally. And did I fall asleep while reading, and miss the tedious Rock Star Boyfriend storyline? I don't remember reading about him... Too bad. I'm certainly not going to read it again to check - root canal treatment would be more fun!
She says her motto is 'why me?'. That's exactly what I was thinking while reading this tosh. This is the first book I have bought for my Kindle that I deleted within a few hours of purchasing it. Buyer, beware - and spend your money on something else!
