There are clear comparisons between Pam and Sir John Betjeman (Daily Express)
'Observant, mocking, gently thought-provoking. SURGICALLY ENHANCED . . . is one of her best' (Daily Telegraph)
'Engrossing and wonderfully evocative . . . better than ever before. SURGICALLY ENHANCED is Ayres at her heartiest. Always therapeutic - good for our hearts and souls - and always there to bring a glow to the cheeks and a tear to the eye.' (Sydney Morning Herald)
'You can't help but warm to Ayres's humorous and wry take on life' (Launceston Examiner)
Number one poetry bestseller of 2007. 'And still she goes on. Eat your hearts out Heaney and Motion.' (The Times)

Well, what can I say? First thing that struck me was that whilst reading it, (to myself, not even out loud), I found that I was reading it with an endearing Pam Ayres accent! Couldn't help myself and it just made it all so much more real somehow.
Her tales of times growing up brought back lots of lovely memories of my own happy childhood. Wish I'd known about that handy trick to catch crayfish though, love those.
All the tales are just so what could happen to any of us and probably has or will at some point in our lives but she just has such a wonderful way of expressing them.
I foolishly started reading this just before bedtime and naturally couldn't put it down until it was finished. Resulting in some very strange sideways glances from my almost sleeping husband as I tried to stifle my chuckles once I'd made it up to bed with the book.
This was a real pleasure to read and some welcome light relief from my usual genre of thrillers. I've never read any Pam Ayres books before, but will certainly be reading more in future. I'm sure her older works are equally as laughable.
This book is a cracker and will have you chuckling along all the way through, because Pam always writes about events we can relate to, which is her great strength.
Get a copy, then, like I'm planning to do, get some of her other books from Amazon; my idleness has now been cured, as laughter, is indeed, a wonderful thing. She dishes up exceptionally good British humour in a world where American humour seems to be trying to take over, and OK, maybe I'm one-in-a-million, but The Simpson's and all the other codswallop from the U S of A JUST DOESN'T DO ANYTHING for me; Pam Ayres does, in bucketloads!
poems and enjoying a good belly laugh. She is certainly very talented and I would highly
recommend this read.
she writes with good humour and touches her toes
she understands husbands and hairy old dogs
and the world is the better wherever she goes.
