This was just an okay book for me. It really took me awhile to get into it. I just about gave up when about half way through, it really started getting interesting and I got into it and had to finish it. Good Mommy Lit, just a bit slow in the beginning. Glad I finished it.
I was really disappointed with this book. The concept was great but execution was poor. Maybe I don't have that weird Brit humor, but it seemed contrived and didn't flow well. It was a fight to finish it.
I really liked it...easy read. It was the greatest but it wasn't the worst...which sounds like a bad review ha-ha, but it's not. It was relatable and I did want to see how it ended. I DO like British humor and the various colloquialisms and facts you garner from reading a Britsh author, however I feel that the author tried VERY hard to keep it extremely generic and I found there was little that was British in the book.
