3.0 out of 5 stars Light romp of a book, 11 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The School for Husbands (Paperback)
This is the first Holden I've read and while I'm not rushing out to buy her back catalogue, I'd read others if in the mood for some light chick-lit. This feels like a book of two halves: the first offers a fairly read-it-before account of the irritations of married life (husband leaving top off toothpaste, never around to look after new baby etc.) although it does offer a dual perspective from both Sophie and Mark's points of view.

The second half is the school of the title, where the rather lovely Mark goes to learn to be a better husband. The miscellaneous collection of men adds some much-needed giggles to the book as they learn to put the toilet seat down (yes, this has no problem with pandering to generalities and gender stereotypes...), express themselves in sentences of more than three words, and discover the mysteries of waxing and fake tan (urgh!).

Typical chick-lit, this is a light and frothy read, perfect bath and bed-time reading.
