Swallowed it whole, 13 Mar. 2012
Admittedly, this would not be my usual literary fare; I read Pear Shaped after witnessing my girlfriend devour the book practically within an afternoon. I'm sure this book will find itself nestled amongst the latest chic-lit offerings in bookshops, but Pearshaped would not be out of place in the cookery section; it's full of precise, mouth-watering descriptions of dining and desserts. Nor the comedy section; lots of laugh-out-loud moments and I had a smile on my face for much of the time I was reading it. Which was not long. You will wolf this down like it were one of the main character's custard doughnuts. Highly recommended.
