Betty put me in mind of a Hyacinth Bucket type middle-class well to do status conscious middle aged lady, living in a leafy suburban four bedroomed house with her mother-in-law and estate agent husband, days are spent caring for the household, attending the local country club, and meeting with the ladies of the literarily group. She is 'proper' and thus moaned and criticised by her nearest and [almost] dearest.
As Betty throws out her husband and their daughter arrives stating she has left her boring partner, daughter brings with her to read the latest smash "50 shades of grey", just a few captured sentences sends Betty's blush level to scarlet. Needing money and fast Betty talks herself into writing a story and it seems alternate bedroom acrobatics are the dish de jour. But there is a flaw in her plot, namely she knows very little about sex, let alone anything remotely kinking connected to rumpy pumpy; she types into the internet "Show me a free pornographic film, please" [I did say she was proper]. Where her mouse takes her is a journey of hilarity and misdirection.
The chaos that ensues is worthy of any TV situation comedy. Her innocent and naive writing goes viral and she suddenly there are thousands of fans desperately waiting for the next chapter.
I found this really so enjoyable and comfortable that I will definitely be buying the sequel!
I liked the fact that the main character was written from both the first, and in some cases, the 3rd person. The absence of an 'acrobatic inner goddess' was again, refreshing.
The crossover from the daily life of what one can only refer to as a 'Hyacinth Bucket' lady (It's bouquet actually!), is very well done.
The book doesn't take it's self too seriously but, adding the menacing element of money lenders/debt collectors, in a very honest light will, I'm sure be an eye opener for many people.
All in all a very enjoyable read.
Remember tho, a mother in law is for life.....
This is a far fetched, slapstick style story. Betty is very naive for her 65 years and I'm not sure I believed she could be quite that naive considering she was computer savvy and changed within days from a weak to a strong woman! However, it has obviously been written by the author with her tongue firmly in cheek!
I laughed at how Betty typed a question into the search engine saying 'please'! Muriel the dreaded mother in law was funny! I would have liked to have Betty's husband feature a bit more and read what he thought of Betty's success! I feel there is scope for another edition to this story catching up with Betty...maybe her finding her very own Richmond/Ricardo?!
If you want a laugh, download this book.
I raced through this book and found it terribly funny. The characterisation is excellent. Leading the cast, Betty is a lovely comic creation; she grabs the sympathy of the reader while still remaining wildly funny. She constantly strives for middle to upper class values and this makes her getting to grips with all manner of sex toys and the art of writing erotica all the more funny. For me, Muriel, the mother-in-law, was possibly even funnier than Betty herself, always sticking her nose in and putting her daughter-in-law down. The scenes featuring both Betty and Muriel are comic bliss.
I also enjoyed the knowing commentary on self-publishing. I recognised and chuckled at Betty's frustrations and experience in going it alone in the publishing world. Does Betty triumph? As if I'd say here; you'll have to read it for yourself! The book does contain brief descriptions of sexual acts but it is always laced with humour. Betty's disbelief that such things are possible are a joy to watch unfold! As long as you're not a total prude, you'll love this entertaining book. I believe a sequel is to be written following its success. Great!
