Review

“Wickedly entertaining.” – Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian

“It’s all a hoot.” – Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times

Praise for Confessions of Georgia Nicolson:

“Raucously fun.” – The Times

'’You'll be falling about laughing at this.” – Mizz

‘The only snag about taking this on holiday is that it won’t last long: it will be consumed without a break except for the snorting noises. But it can always be passed on to parents by any youngster who can stand the sound of Vati’s and Mutti’s snorts, or dipped into repeatedly because every line is vair vair funny.’ Sunday Times

Praise for ‘…startled by his furry shorts.’:

‘It’s an excellent book and I’m dying to know what happens next.’ Sugar

Praise for ‘…and that’s when it fell off in my hand.’:

‘Readers will find themselves laughing uncontrollably until their sides hurt, and won’t be able to put the book down.’ Sunday Times

‘Hilarious… [Louise Rennison] is queen of the pink-book pack.’ The Times

Praise for ‘Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging’:

‘Bridget Jones for teenagers – but funnier. Expect Potter-esque queues for the sequel.’ Sunday Telegraph

"I don't know how, but Louise Rennison has done it again. Tallulah is even funnier, warmer, and sweeter than her cousin Georgia Nicolson. I fell in love with Withering Tights, and you will too!" – Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries and Abandon series

After receiving my copy of 'Withering Tights' from Amazon on the day it came out, I sat down to read it after eagerly anticipating this day for many many months, and trust me the wait was well worth it.

The story is about 14 and a half year old Talullah who goes to a summer performing arts college in Yorkshire called Dother Hall. As the cousin of the loony Georgia Nicolson, Talullah has of course inherited her silliness, and hilarious view on life. With her new friends, and the boys from the all boys school not far away they are bound to have some unsupervised fun.

Louise Rennison has created another fantastic book; fans of the Georgia Nicolson series will not be disappointed. I do have to say though, it was extremely funny, however I found the Georgia Nicolson series funnier, this may only be because there are 10 of those books, and only one of this new series. I am sure as we get further into Tallulah's experiences at Dother Hall the series will become even better.

I was slightly sceptical about trying a new series from a fab author, as with most things the second time round is never as successful as the first. But i have to say i genuinely enjoyed this book, in fact i think i prefer it to the georgia nicolson series! Although I think this one is possibly aimed at a slightly younger audience, but is still just as good for an older teen.
Tallulah Casey has just embarked on an amazing journey to......YORKSHIRE! Why? Tallulah is going to attend Dother Hall for the summer, a performing arts school with an extremely eccentric headmistress - Ms Beaver. As tallulah begins to make friends in the tiny village, the majority of which seems to be populated solely by sheep, several things arise. Is this going to Tallulah's Summer of Lurve?!; will she ever grow into her hated knees?!; will she make a further idiot of herself in front of the towns bad boy- Cain Hinchcliff AND most importantly will the knock kneed, nutty, tree hugging, irish dancing Tallulah "Lullah" Casey make it into the academy with all her mega talented friends?!
You will not be disappointed! Clearly all of Georgia's relatives are just as nutty, cool and hilarious as her! The book is slightly slow to begin with but after the first few chapters you can really get your teeth into it!!! LOVE! Roll on Book 2!!

When I was around 13 I read the Georgia Nicholson books and fell in love with them, when I finished the series I wanted to carry on
reading more Louise Rennison books. This book is so good for that in-between age and I would highly recommend them to all my friends! If your thinking about buying the two books go for it because they really are very good and witty, while also explaining all the thoughts that a teenager seems to have.

Oh dear God this book is insane. It could have easily killed me with its hilarity, and to be entirely honest it might just be the most hilarious, most ridiculous book I've ever read. I wish I read this when I was younger - I'd have loved it! Or well...it could have easily killed me then. It's just too funny!

Tallulah Casey is seriously insane. In a good way. She is a character so full of life it's hard to not be uplifted whenever I open the pages and read about her adventures ... or I beg your pardon, misadventures. Her voice is genuine, and really a lot like a young teen. You can sense her naivety and insecurity, and it is easy to relive your very own interesting teenage experiences with her. Or compare it with hers, and with it comes the nostalgia. I think that's one of the best things about Withering Tights - as an adult, it not only filled with the the exuberance of a teenage spirit, but also made me reminisce the many misadventures of my own teenage life!

With a cast of equally vibrant characters with Tallulah, Withering Tights blossoms to a book with a life on its own. It's easy to get into the flow of the plot; apart from Tallulah's easy narration, one can expect hilarity at every other page, indignation in between, and a lot of fun mishaps sprinkled throughout.

A little caution on the narrative's tendency to exaggerate, though. Although admittedly, it is so very hilarious, at times it's bordering on stupidity rather than naivety - it's primarily what I disliked about the book, really. I felt that Tallulah as a character with brains was somehow sacrificed just so the humour could continue. My thoughts then, at those points were dominated by - 'surely no teen could be that stupid!' But there you go.

Having said that, I'm sure Withering Tights will be a hit for kids and kids at heart alike. It's hard not to like such a vibrant, hilarious book!

As a avid reader of the previous Louise Rennison series, i was surprised when i came across the new book in waterstones, having heard nothing about a new series of books! It looked promisingly weird, (from the picture of an owl on the cover...) and the nice man at the counter said he had read it and loved it, so i got it.
i was slightly scared that this new book wouldn't live up to the Georgia books, but after the first few chapters i realised that it was just as good (thank god!) Tallulah, the main character, is every bit a quirky as her cousin, with the same wanderings about boys, adults, and her body. it was nice to have a change of scene as well, from a average town-life to a small village in Yorkshire. the only criticism, and the reason i didn't give it 5 stars, is that it is very similar to the Georgia books.
well worth the money, looking forward to the next book, entertaining read :]
