A great disappointment,
This review is from: We Are All Made of Glue (Paperback)
Having read and enjoyed Marina Lewycka's other two novels I was looking forward to reading this. Unfortunately I have found it a great disappointment, it is very lightweight and touches on some serious subjects but doesn't really get them across. I didn't take to any of the characters and found it all a bit of a mish-mash, I struggled through to the end but couldn't wait for it to end.

Very good point made, I loved 'A short History' but felt this book was lazy and full of the stereotypes that other reviewers have picked out, big disappointment.

Quite agree. It also contained my pet hate - an author writing about someone trying to be an author! It never works.
