Katie grew up as a countryside girl. Her father and stepmother want to use their Somerset farm for glamping. Katie's father doesn't have much business sense, but Katie knows how to set it all up. She's got the skills and learned a lot just by watching Demeter. Katie knows exactly how to turn their farm into a successful vacation business for rich people. She tells her overprotective father she's on a sabbatical from work, but still has her job in London. She can easily keep her unemployment a secret until Demeter shows up for a holiday at the farm. What should Katie do and does she still have a future in London or does she belong with her family working on the farm?
My Not So Perfect Life is a funny story. Katie is a sweet girl with a good head on her shoulders. Katie is much bolder than Cat. She has wild curling hair and she's a healthy country girl.Read more ›
This is quite an amusing story, but not as funny as some of Sophie Kinsella's other books, and nowhere near as hilarious as The Undomestic Goddess (my personal favourite). The first part of the book, set in London, seems to me to go on rather too long, and the funniest part, when Katie is trying to get her revenge on Demeter, not long enough. The love interest is not as interesting as some of her others either. Although entertaining enough, it is not one of her best.
Having no choice but to move back home, Katie volunteered to help her father, and step-mother launch, Ansters Farm Country Retreat, a Glamping business. Katie was just beginning, to enjoy her work, when her ex-boss showed up, with her family, for a vacation. Needless to say, Katie was beside herself. I found Katie’s revenge on her old boss, hysterical. Sophie Kinsella knows how to write hilarious inner dialogue and crazy funny scenes.
Katie learned some lessons in this book; 1. People are not always who they appear to be and 2. No one has a perfect life. My Not So Perfect Life is an easy-breezy, well-written, humorous book, with lots of likable characters, and witty dialogue. Be prepared to laugh, a lot. Highly recommended.
Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to read this advanced review copy. I loved it!
I loved this novel, this really is a true Kinsella novel and I loved how relatable this is. From the beginning we see Katie struggling with her life in London, what she thought would be her dream, but she posts her 'perfect' life onto Instagram. As does her horrible ex-boss Demeter. This is so relatable and got me thinking about how well we really know people around us and whether we too are posting our 'perfect' lives without really living them. I adored this novel for being so realistic, the plot as well as the characters. By the end of the novel, Katie and Demeter felt like my friends and I was so invested in their story.
Of course this novel is hilarious and provided many a laugh throughout. It is also incredibly entertaining and fun and it was a pleasure to read and lose myself in. Katie and Demeter as characters are perfect and the journey they go as they learn about themselves and each other is funny and insightful. Then we have the romantic plot arc with Katie and Alex, providing some really lovely moments throughout the novel. The three main characters are perfectly written and complement each other perfectly.
This novel will ensure plenty of entertainment and hilarity and is an all round enjoyable read.
