ISBN: 9780141399645

Growing up I was a huge "Adrian Mole" Fan, so when a friend of mine lent me this book to read, I couldn't wait to get into it!
This book was an easy read and was enjoyable enough. It didn't reach the Adrian Mole status, but was a satisfactory story. 

You may ask yourself, how interesting can a book be about a woman who stayed in bed for a year, but it has some very "Real" scenarios in the book that really did make me stop and think.
She portrays how in this day-and-age people can go from doing their own thing to "SuperStar - Guru" Status through the Twitter-sphere simply because one person assumes something.

As the book progressed I felt more and more sorry for the main character Eva, who originally (in my mind) was just losing it. 

Ms. Townsend manages to add a little light-heartedness to the story and I did have to giggle in spots, but it wasn't as said on the cover "I laughed until I cried" kind of book for me at all, and I felt the serious undertone of the story was definitely more pronounced than the humorous side of it all.

I award this book:

  1. Sounds like an interesting read. I often think how much our lives seem to be "online" now, and not necessarily out in real life.

    1. Hi Heather,
      I agree, the world has been reduced to what we can see on the screen of a smartphone or pad - it is quite tragic!
