Publisher's Summary

Every woman wants to be wanted, just not by the entire Metropolitan police force...

Maddy Wolfe's first day out with her newborn takes a Kafkaesque turn when she's wrongfully arrested in Harrods for shoplifting. The only person she can turn to is her hot-to-trot ex-lover Alex, who proves himself to be as useful as a solar powered vibrator on a rainy day. When will he realise that a paternity suit is not the latest look in men's leisurewear?

How do you brief a lawyer with a heat-seaking penis that doesn't report to mission control? An why the hell is Maddy's friend Gillian searching for a sperm happy to get egg all over its face?

©1996 Kathy Lette; (P)2004 Bolinda Publishing Pyt Ltd by arrangement with Penguin Group (Australia)

    "Dated and Disappointing"

    Never read Kathy Lette before and won't again. Granted, perhaps it's just a book that doesn't age well but... I didn't enjoy or warm to a single character! Found them all vile.

    Narrotor did nothing for me either.

    Just not to my taste at all. Sorry Lette fans.

    "Brilliant - Laugh Out Loud"
    What other book might you compare Mad Cows to, and why?

    Sequel to Foetal Attraction which is also brilliant. Enjoy all of Kathy Lette's books. Definitely not a run of the mill chick lit.

    "Think before you buy!!!"

    I am an avid reader and audible listener. I have never written a review, but felt that on this book I had to. It was very hard to listen to due to the accent of the narrator. I don't even think it was her fault. I think the book was just poorly put together. There was too much English slang run togther, disjointed sections, and unrealistic situations. It was hard to follow. I did alot of backing up and relistening to areas. There were some very funny one liners, but overall I felt like I had to finish the book just because I was in shock. I have never encouraged someone to not buy a book, or to not read, but I will not encourage anyone to buy this one.

    "I don't recommend"

    The narrator's voice and annunciation is enough to make me drive off the road. The story was okay. I have listed to much better, but not many worse.

    "Mad Cows"

    The characters in this book are all shallow and unlikeable. The plot is REALLY stupid and unbelieveable.
