A lot of the humour you can see coming a mile off and after a while that starts to get annoying and destroys any sense of fun. Don't get me wrong every now and then she does come up with a good gag or observation which makes you laugh out loud, but these are few and far between. The book makes me think of those successful sitcoms which get turned into feature films and fall flat because they are designed to work over 30 minutes and not over hours. The same applies here, there seems to be a lot of padding in the book to get it to the right number of pages and there appears to be a desperation to try to fit in jokes - even if they are not very funny......or original.
In short, if you get it for a bargain then it is worth a read as it can be entertaining. But don't expect too much fun.
This book is a "bible" when it comes down to real, proper marriage.
Don't listen to the Priest: listen to Edna. She knows what she is talking about.
The only shame? There is only one Edna and I respect too much Stephen Fry.
Do I need to add anything to convince you this is an amazing book? I'm usually a "slow" reader: finished this in less than 1 week (quite fast for my standard). A page turner!

It's one of the silliest quickies I've read. It was funny throughout and had me giggling in the middle of the night.Published 17 months ago by purplemonkeydishwasher

Love Steven Fry but book isn't as personable as he is. I expected sharp wit and charm but book is a bit hum drum and predictable.Published 18 months ago by Miss T Wherry
