Publisher's Summary

Hannah Evans has three small boys. In her world, farting is so much more interesting than phonics, dam-building trumps damsels in distress any day and, astonishingly, she now instinctively knows the difference between a Frontloader and a JCB. It's a world of mud - and just occasionally blood - sweat and tears. It is also a world of indescribable joy. MOB Rule is the funny, honest and eye-opening account of Hannah's experiences as a Mother of Boys. Supplemented by recipes, quizzes, mnemonics and mysteries, it is the indispensible guide for anyone who finds themselves adrift on a sea of testosterone, wondering when the lifeboat is going to show up. You may be outnumbered, your face may be frazzled and your toe-nails black and bare, but know that, far from being alone, you're part of a very special club. Welcome to...the MOB!

    Story
    "Perhaps I'm missing something - this is hard work"
    What disappointed you about MOB Rule?

    I have made it to chapter 4 but this was hard going! As the mother of 4, I appreciate some of the things they were trying to get across but really, it's either irrelevant ( if you don't have kids) or preaching - in a laboured, slow and painful style of writing and reading, to the converted. It just comes across as semi-organised moaning!


    What will your next listen be?

    The Brentford Triangle - something different, quick paced and enthusiastic.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Lesley Parkin’s performances?

    I would be very reluctant to pick another book read by this person


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    not really!


    Any additional comments?

    I hate not completing books but this was driving me into a depression!

    Story
    "A Must for Parents of Boys!"
    If you could sum up MOB Rule in three words, what would they be?

    A LOL book!


    What other book might you compare MOB Rule to and why?

    The Berenstain Bears Baby book, which was also a hilarious look at rearing children! I think it's out of print now.


    Which character – as performed by Lesley Parkin – was your favorite?

    I thought Lesley did a fantastic job with all of the characters. She is really versatile, and is one of my favorite narrators. I look for books that she has narrated. She performed the children really well.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    All of the acronyms! My husband and I refer to everyone using the same acronyms!


    Any additional comments?

    I really thought this book was hilarious! I laughed out loud all the way through! After raising 6 boys, we could really empathize!!
