I read this on the bus to work in the morning and it really cheered me up. I loved the characters, thought that it was very wittily written, enjoyed the descriptions of London and Notting Hill, and I especially loved the whole Tom Jones theme running through it. It's a simple story of girl meets boy, but the author has used a sharp eye and clever observations to make this romance stand out from all the rest.

This was one of the first Alexandra Potter books I read and I have been engrossed since! This romance really challenges what you believe in, makes your heartstrings pull and you can't help but fall for the good guy and almost shout at Delilah, the main character, in frustration! I also loved the Tom Jones that is weaved throughout the book, perfect read!

What a scream..........."What's New Pussycat" is a fantastic read, its funny, witty, inspiring and charming, I really do recommend to all. Deliah, the main character ends up feeling like your best friend by the end.
What would you do if your boyfriend proposed? Shout, 'Yes!' grab the diamond solitaire and take out a subscription to Brides magazine, or panic and buy a one-way ticket to Outer Mongolia? This is the dilemma that faces Delilah, the down-to-earth Yorkshire heroine of Alexandra Potter's debut novel, What's New Pussycat? As it turns out, Delilah does neither. Instead, after a chance meeting with a gorgeous media type Charlie, who lives in London's trendy Notting Hill, she dumps her boyfriend, packs up her beloved Tom Jones collection and her whippet Fatso into her VW Beetle and heads for the brights of the big city. There she meets sweet Sam from the local cafe and his outrageous friend Vivienne, and life suddenly takes an upward turn. London is
everything she ever dreamed of and with Charlie she's soon enjoying a whirl of glitzy parties and designer shopping sprees. Or is she? Is Charlie really the man for her? Or could shy Sam be the man of her dreams instead? This is a funny, touching love story, packed with hilarious observations of London living.
You'll find yourself not being able to the put the book down after reading the first couple of pages. Wonderful.

I like Alex Potters books, but only the latter ones.. I find the early ones a little too dull, the plots and characters wishy-washy, and her writing style not so good. I bought this book thinking it was a new one, due to Amazon's publication date. I didnt know that this was a re-release of one of her first, so am not too happy!

I read this book whilst on holiday in Sri Lanka with my best mate. I bought it at the airport, as I was very attracted to the front cover which is bright and bubbly! it was such a good read i have read it a few times as i have had it a couple of years. Is a brilliant book for young women and tells the story of a girl called Delilah who leaves her old home, boyfriend and all sorts! would definatly reccommend this book!

Having read the Potter books in the wrong order, ie: newest first. I decided to buy the rest of her books and give them a go.
The book was, as expected, light hearted, feel good fun. I must agree with the other reviewer that the cover of the book does give away the ending (Why?) however half way through you do know what the ending will be anyway.
The main characters of Delilah and Sam are overshadowed by the wonderfully funny Vivienne and what she gets up to will keep you entertained throughout the whole book.
Personally I think Potter's books get better the more up to date you become. This book is not a patch on Calling Romeo or Do you come here often?, but all the same well worth a read!!

By A Customer on 5 Mar. 2003
Format: Paperback
I had read so many good review about this book, and read interviews with the author. Originating from 'Up North', I though I may find something in this book that has been seriously lacking in a lot of 'modern women's fiction' for a few years. The plot from the back of the book looked promising enough, but in fact the whole thing was a total let down.
For a start, the writing was kept very simple and explanatory and I had the constant feeling throughout that the author could have done better, if only she had actually spent some time on it.
The plot was wafer thin, a northern girl moves down to London in search of the mystery male who will inevitably change her life. Instead she meets lovely Sam and mad Vivienne.
Sam falls in love with Delilah almost immediately, which didn't really sit that well with me, and Delilah and Vivienne became instant best friends, which again seemed a little to convenient to the plot.
The character of Sam is one we have seem time and time again, and the only suspense is whether Delilah chooses lovely Sam or Charlie...
The character of Vivienne was one that I found instantly annoying and irritating. The sex mad, slightly barmy, eccentric, tart with a heart, you can help but love her, best friend. Do we not see this in all these types of book. I suppose the only saving grace was that she didn't happen to have the obligatory gay friend.
All in all, I found the book a bit of a chore to read, as you already knew what was going to happen. Whilst the plot was carried along smoothly, I didn't feel I was reading anything new or interesting. I also felt there could have been more observations about London and Bradford, and some mention of what the ex Lenny was up to.
My suggestion is to skip this, unless you enjoy predictable romance, and join the Lisa Jewell fan club!
