2.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre and unrealistic., 30 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Daughter (Paperback)
OK, on face value this seemed like a good and intriguing read, especially the billed 'earth shattering' conclusion.
Reality:
Its a disjointed jumble about a wishy washy GP who has little grasp on reality and zero idea about what's going on with any of her children. She's got a 14 year old who has an advanced sex life and is pregnant plus stealing drugs and a son who actually is a drug addict. So both are doing splendidly at school (what planet does this author inhabit?), so no joy there is knowing everything is wrong. All you get is a 14 year old who eats hardly anything, wears high heels, and looks 'exhausted' all the time. By tge time I was a third of the way through the book I'd lost the will. Its really about the most boring things I've has the misfortune to buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars what?, 20 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Madeleine (Hardcover)
Its not as if the woman popped into a shop and left the kids in the car, she left 3 small children home alone so her and her husband could go to a restaurant. Wouldn't you get arrested in this country for that?

1.0 out of 5 stars What the heck!, 14 April 2012
This review is from: Plugged (Hardcover)
I have read most of Colfers books, and have absolutely enjoyed them enormously. When I saw this book, I knew I would have to read it!!! What a big let down. It was extremely hard to get into. What sticks out the most is that the main character spends most of his time bizarrely obsessing over his hair loss and subsequent hair transplant, and if that's not enough then he launches into a dialogue about one of the villians of the piece having a hair transplant too. I am afraid this is one of the extremely rare occasions when I just didn't finish the book because it was also very very boring. What's happened?!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Well, I am sure they will talk.........., 4 July 2011
This review is from: Let Them Talk (Audio CD)
Hugh, you are an amusing man, and have been hugely successful in all your' ventures. I am sad to say that you really cannot sing. Listening to this was a bit like listening to an bad audition on the x-factor. You know when some poor sod has convinced themselves that they are truly great? But they aren't! Why? Well, it's not the music or songs, it's the voice. It makes me wince when I hear it repeatedly struggling to make the notes. it has no depth. It's just painful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat boring and slightly embarassing., 6 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Jump! (Hardcover)
I read quite few of Jilly Coopers books a while ago, so I thought I had backed a winner when I bought this, however it kind of fell at the first fence!! One of the main characters, Etta, seems to spend an inordinate amount of time bawling, sobbing and howling. She seems to walk about with an almost permanently red wrinkled blotchy face from permanently crying, which beleive me she does in almost every chapter frankly it becomes predictably tedious by the end and I wished the vet would come and put her down. There is an explicit sex scene in achurch, which is bizarre, and all of the characters, well just just can't imagine them, they are pretty week. It took me ages to read this book because it was so put downable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wet weekend!, 12 Sept. 2010
This review is from: This Time For Keeps (Paperback)
Well i read this book, having bought it with anticipation, and WOW what a let down. The main character 'Babs' is a wet weekend, and comes across and some one who would 'drop them' for anyone. Her dialogue in the book is monosyballic often consisting of lines such as 'dunno' or 'I dunno'. Strangely enough by the end of the book she is on her third man whom she met whilst picking sprouts and spuds but had no physical or emotional interaction with, and in the last few pages she decides he is the man for her, that she is going to eventually marry him and live in Italy, and all after one kiss.
