Laura and Tyler are best friends who live together, angrily philosophising and leading each other astray in the pubs and flats of Manchester. But things are set to change.
Laura is engaged to teetotal Jim, the wedding is just months away, and Tyler becomes hell-bent on sabotaging her friend's plans for a different life.

"I wish I had written this book... Withnail with girls" (Caitlin Moran)
"A gloriously over-the-top account of female friendship" (Guardian)
"Fantastic narrator; great story"
I don't usually listen to audiobooks again but I'll be looking for the narrator's other work and I've added the author's other book to my wishlist.
I really enjoyed this book but I think a large part of my enjoyment might have been the audiobook's narrator -- i could listen to her read the Manchester phonebook.
The story itself was interesting; i like reading about women's friendships, particularly women my age. The "Withnail & I with vaginas" comment in another review was spot on and there were some gorgeous turns of phrase here. There were some places where the narrative lagged but it was forgivable.
Not yet but looking forward to it.
Laugh and laugh and cringe a little. I ended up telling a friend about some of the embarrassing moments from the book.
