Breaking down the class barriers?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Class (Mass Market Paperback)
When I first read this book, I really didn't like it. I thought it was quite insulting really, and was surprised that I felt that way, as I usually love Jilly Cooper's work. However, when
I read it again without my working class chip on my shoulder, then I really enjoyed it, and found it very funny. The trick is to realise that it is a humourous work, and not to take it seriously. It pokes gentle fun at all the so-called classes, and no one comes out of it smelling of roses! It is a clever book, I think, and one that I have since read many times. Read it with an open mind, and you'll laugh out loud, I promise!!
