Amazon Review

It is bad enough trying to cope with being a teenager, Georgia Nicolson's problems go way beyond the average in Louise Rennison's debut novel for children--a kind of Bridget Jones does "Top Shop" and just as funny.

Georgia relates her tales of love, life and full frontal snogging through her diary, a format that in this case works like a dream. Georgia not only has to cope with the hormonal roller coaster that refuses to stop, but fears that she might be a lesbian and her dad might be a transvestite. Of course, Georgia is seeing the world through her naive eyes and seems to get every situation hopelessly wrong--not so good for her but great for the reader who is treated to an hilarious account of a few months in the life of typical teenager.

Rennison's prose crackles with energy and enthusiasm and her voice is so painfully authentic that at times you feel almost guilty, as if you are secretly peering into the pages of a real person's diary. But it is the author's razor sharp humour that will keep you hooked and, at times, virtually crying with laughter as Georgia stumbles from one mid-teen crisis to the next, such as an unfortunate incident with a pair of tweezers and some eye liner pencil. Her cringe-inducing encounters with boys, especially her over-friendly cousin, cause just as many problems as what she should do with her hands while engaging in a heavy kissing session.

Angus, Things and Full-Frontal Snogging is a smart, sharp and very funny book, superbly written and acutely observed--please Ms Rennison, can we have some more? (Age 12 and over) --Jonathan Weir --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Even though this book was intended for teenage girls, I can't think of a single person who won't love it. It's so funny it's barely a novel- more like a stand-up show in which all is intended is to make you laugh.
Georgia Nicolson is a typically shallow, self-obsessed, yet fun-loving and warm fourteen-year-old girl, whose main concerns revolve around her appearance and boys (the Sex God will become a househeld name). In this diary-style book, we are invited to follow Georgia's hilarious and brutally honest account of her life and the world around her. It's not about any particular issue (except surviving being a teenager), it preaches nothing and there are no clever twists- but that's not important because it's just SO funny. If you do not read this you will be missing out.

This is essential reading for teenage girls - and their mothers - and their fathers!! I had to sneak this out of my daughter's room to read whilst she was at school. I laughed so hard I cried and startled the cat in the process. Louise Rennison has teenage Georgia and her friends described perfectly!

This is so funny and amazing fabbity fab fab fab. I didn't know whether I would like it or not but decided to try reading it as it had some great reviews , like this one! I'm twelve and I don't think it goes into too much detail about anything rude. In fact it's not really like the name. her cat's called Angus(scottish) and her enemy wears thongs and her and her loon friends invent a snogging scale.Except it only goes into detail about the first thing. It touches real life issues and is a must have read for any girl aged 10+!!! It's fabbity fab. It rocks my socks.P.S. I read it when I was 10 nearly 11 and I'm normal well at least I think. I touches romance and is great read for anyone foing on holiday.

Move over Bridget Jones and step aside Adrian Mole, because anyone who's ever been a teenager will be chortling to these hilarious award-winning diaries of Georgia Nicholson. This gregarious girl's confessions make some of the most honestly funny reading published for teenagers (and those of us just a 'tad' older, well, young enough to remember those angst-ridden years!) Both books, (spanning a single year each), and part of a collection of four, capture the frustrations and flirtations of those torturous teenage years with so much hilarity and at such a fast pace that you're left breathless by the time you reach the end of the book.
Georgia has all the usual problems - a stubborn spot on her nose, sadistic teachers, an incontinent younger sister and an uncontrollable pet Scottish wildcat (alias Angus). Her parents might be splitting up or shipping them all out to 'Kiwi-a-gogo land' (New Zealand) and she still doesn't know how to kiss properly. She recounts these traumas with a sense of irony and deadpan wit. This muddle-headed, drama teen-queen had me giggling out loud. I could feel myself blush aimlessly and cringing with recognition to similar emotions and events that were, at the time, the only reason for living and breathing - boys and make-up - and stopping at nothing to claim that 'gorgey' sex god. Thank God I have acquired a certain dignity and decorum now beyond those early attempts of desperation. In other words, I've found that devilish partner-in-crime and am doing the time. Mind you, he wouldn't notice if I shaved off my eyebrows and took up wearing leg warmers again. (It was the mid-eighties - the years not degrees).
These are delicious dairies full of thrills, spills and hilarious escapades, amply titled with a dazzling set of wicked catchphrases.

I read Angus, thongs and full frontal snogging lately and it was BRILLIANT! I laughed so hard at one bit that I fell off my bed! It is the funniest book that I have ever read and I hope It's O.K., I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers is as good. I have only two complaints about the book... 1. She complained too much about her looks yet she got attention from guys including a sex god - as she put it. 2. It took me ages to get my mother to buy it for me because of the title.

Once I had started reading this book I couldn't stop reading it until I had read it all. This book is such a true insight of a typical teenagers life. I couldn't stop laughing all the way through. The part where Georgia demolishes her eyebrows brings back so many eye watering memories! This book is definately my favorate book of all time and I can't wait to read further confessions of Georgia. Thumbs up all round!

Georgia is just abit mad. Well so would you if you had a mad sister, a scottish wildcat as a pet, a possible transvestite dad, A mum with a "shelf" and an uncle Eddie who pulled up at your school disco in his motorbike- the one that was around when God was a boy. Not to mention a ridiculously dim friend called Jas, the recollection of going to a fancydress party dressed as a stuffed olive and a school which made you wear a beret. Its not easy being a teenager, Georgia's diary will tell you just that. This book basically tells of the usual teenage problems we go through- not to mention added ones like having to trap older sex gods with wet weed girlfriends, a big mouthed ex and an ex boyfriend who not only is a snogging prostitute, but thinks your a lesbian. Team that together with the added stress of being a girl and going to school and thats Georgia's story in one swift plunge. Seriously though, READ THIS. You need to, it's not only the funniest thing you are ever likely to come across,[...] but it's the only thing in the human world which will make you realise that all though you are mad, there are worse off people....(eg. Georgia). Louise Rennison is soooo brilliant at capturing the feelings of a teenager, her style makes Frank Skinner, Ricky Tomlinson and Harry Enfield etc look really UNFUNNY.
