This is a book my mother bought me for christmas and we now have an understanding that she will never buy me a book again. She said she bought it because it was a bestseller and thought the title reflected me.

If my dear old mother had known better she would have steered clear of the bestseller list. it is rare that you find a fiction book of any merit there. The books are best sellers for a reason.

I have to give Josephine Cox credit for one thing, if you ever were stuck for a cliche then all you would need to do is open the book on a random page and you would find one there, he said knowingly (if you read the book you'll get it).

I'm sure that a great deal of people love this sort of thing. I only wish to warn those who have a love of the classics of literature that there is nothing classic about this book. I have never been so glad to finish a book in all my life. It did make me laugh though. i had great amusement in reading aloud certain sentances to my girlfriend. I was reading 'Rebecca' by Daphne Du Maurier at the same time as reading this. The books are worlds apart, and i know which side of the fence i'm happy to sit upon.
