I finally caught up recently with the awful film which altered Becky from being goodhearted, hardworking and fairly responsible in the first book into completely ditzy, irritating and immature and unfortunately this has now infected Kinsella's writing. Becky's character in this is a million miles from the character we could all identify with and love in the first 3 books...I cannot imagine this Becky paying her way on a flatshare without complaints or excuses, cleverly helping her neighbours get back their money from a sharp practising insurance company, bravely and hilariously going for a job as a fund manager, or trying however disastrously to clear her debts. This Becky has completely regressed to the point where she is not even funny and unfortunately her child is just like her.

I can still laugh out loud at my dogeared copies of Secret Dreamworld, Abroad and Ties the Knot, and this one raises only a few smiles. Kinsella seems now to be writing for the American market so it's a rather unbelievable picture of the British which reminded me of a romcom starring Hugh Grant. Everybody's rich, everybody owns huge houses/stately homes/or doesn't need to work (much). There is nobody to identify with or like in this, I found it more irritating than amusing when Becky is aghast at having to wear all her clothes 3 times before buying any new ones when for most of us especialy in these times 300 times is the norm. Even her mother I found annoying for the first time when she's appalled at the thought of having to go to a pound shop and not spending £4 on a jar of jam. I even disliked Luke for the first time, who comes across as really self and work obsessed and actually obnoxious.

This book is alright as chick lit goes, but it is no better than heaps of other offerings out there. This is really disappointing, as Sophie Kinsella usually does produce something which is far better than the norm in this genre.

The problem in a nutshell is that Becky is no longer someone I can relate to. She is supposedly happily married but yet she manages not to communicate about anything important with her husband. He, nonetheless, seems to adore her. One wonders why, if they are such a perfect couple, she feels unable to tell him when his mother calls her or when she has lost her job, and he feels unable to tell her how he feels about being a parent or about having practically accepted an overseas job offer without even consutling her (of course she is THRILLED- like you would be, not.)

And, as she behaves in increasingly erratic (and, to me, annoying) ways, he just "looks quizzically" at her, or his mouth "twitches slightly". I am getting tired of those lines as well.

Becky used to be a kind and endearing person. Her contribution to the sum of human happiness in this book seems mainly to be to help women hide their excessive purchases from their husbands. Now THAT is really going to help you sleep easy at night.

Oh yes, she is mother to a two year old, but, although Minnie seems to be very annoying in many ways, Becky never has to deal with preparing toddler food, scheduling her life around a nap, a wetting accident, waking in the night, or anything that normal 2 year olds do. Minnie can even party until the early hours at Luke's birthday - just like real life, not.

I know that chick lit is not supposed to be like real life. It is escapism, but, to appeal to me, it should have at least a thread of real life in it.

I had this book on preorder as I had recently finished reading all the previous shopaholic books in order, one after the other and wanted to read this one straight after. This one is good, its just, I don't know, something I cant put my finger on. Maybe the series has had its day. I wasnt gripped to this one like Sophie's earlier books and I found myself skim reading parts of it as I was getting bored. It didnt have the dept that the other books in the series had and I thought Sophie could have made more out of the 'Mini' character. Parts of the story were a bit 'samey' as features in her other books (namely the party) and parts of seemed a bit far fetched, for instance, when her parents moved into the rental property in London. This was my least favourite of Sophies works so far.

Having thoroughly enjoyed the previous exploits of Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) I was looking forward to this next instalment immensely. Disappointing to say the least. The whole country in financial crisis, so what does Becky do, organise a party. With everything going wrong, luckily her MIL steps in. The frost Elinor, with the unlimited credit card limit.

Minnie, the menace is all I could think of calling the daughter of Becky and Luke. A child who hasn't evidently heard the words 'No you can't have....' Often.

Disappointing read.

When I saw the new book by Sophie Kinsella, I didn't think for a second- just bought it without actually knowing what it's about. Couldn't wait to get home, started reading already on the tram. At first I was thinking to myself "becky's back!" with all her silliness, crazy ideas and huge imagination. But then it started to get more and more boring. I thought it would be mostly about Minnie (just as the title suggests). Wrong. We never really get in touch with Minnie, we don't know what happens to her, she doesn't really go through some major change throughout the book and actually, her relationship with her mother is the most weird one I have ever heard of. It kinda made me mad that Becky would be so stubborn and blind and most of all so shallow. I didn't really see any moments that she spent some quality time with Minnie. Throughout the whole book there are really few moments that she takes care of her- most of the time Minnie stays with family, freidns, neighbours etc. I used to really cheer for Becky, feel for her, forgive her all slip-ups- I mean, don't we all make mistakes? But to raise a child in such a strange way, that's actually not funny, that's scary. And don't get me even started on the "surprise party" subject. Really, this book was about nothing. I really hope the next one (if it comes) is way better.
