Customer Review

on 8 September 2006
I picked this book up at 11 pm and spent far too long sitting up reading it roaring with laughter. An excellent commentary on an asinine society. It's a shame she has upset people with coeliac disease, bit of an over-the-top reaction by them to a rant that was undoubtedly aimed at those dreadful people who, with pained expression, refuse to accept any food or drink you have to offer on account of some imagined (not real!!) bodily ill - all about rights of the individual rather than responsiblities to each other - which is the point of this book. This is a glorious rant with a sober undercurrent: the disappearance in the UK of respect and the ability to emphathise with and care for other people in ways that reach beyond our own misely perspective. I think it is great that she said it, and said it so clearly and so amusingly. Lynne Truss for PM? I hear there's a vacancy coming up!
