Summary

Brilliantly funny, here is teenage-angst author Louise Rennison’s first audiobook about the confessions of crazy but lovable Georgia Nicolson.

"There are six things very wrong with my life:

  • 1. I have one of those under-the-skin spots that will never come to a head but lurk in a red way for the next two years.
  • 2. It is on my nose.
  • 3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room.
  • 4. In 14 days the summer hols will be over and then it will be back to Stalag 14 and Oberführer Frau Simpson and her bunch of sadistic 'teachers'.
  • 5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home.
  • 6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive.

Follow Georgia's hilarious antics as she tries to overcome the dilemma’s that are weighing up against her, and muddle her way through teenage life and all that it entails: how to replace accidentally shaved-off eyebrows; how to cope with Angus, her small Labrador-sized Scottish wildcat; her first kiss with Peter – afterwards known as Whelk Boy; annoying teachers; unsympathetic friends and family, and how to entice Robbie the Sex God! Phew – she’s really got her work cut out!

Absolutely hilarious! My favourite series of books next to Harry Potter!

I first read the late great Louise Rennison's Angus Thongs just before starting secondary school in 1999. I firmly believe it set an extremely high standard as no other books I've read since then have made me laugh as hard or have related as much to me as this series has. I still read them now and have only downloaded this so that I may hear Louise retell it as only she can. I cannot wait for kids of my own so that I can pass on her books to them and they can learn what true humour is (taking after me as well of course!) Well, there's my review. Now I am away laughing on a fast camel!

Love this book and Louise Rennison reading it is hilarious!

This is such a funny and well-written book perfectly capturing being a teenager. The author, Louise rennison, reads the book and is absolutely hilarious. These books are as relevant and funny to me at 20 as they were 8 years ago - a really good laugh and escape!

Still fabulously funny!

I read these books as a teenager, and still find them hilarious now at 26. The late Louise Rennison gives a fantastic performance. Endlessly relatable, down to earth and very cheeky. The British humour sings. Georgia feels like a real teenager. My only issue is the stark age difference between Robbie and Georgia.

Great Book!

Loved the book, would buy the others. However, I felt the narrators husky voice made parts of the book hard of hearing would have preferred a clearer narrator.

Nostalgia

I thought I would download these to listen to as I adored the books as a teenager. Normally when an author narrates their work it's awful. Fell back in love and downloaded all the books. So sad and sorry to hear of Louise's passing. She was amazing.

Not suitable for young people to read

Absolutely loved this book as a young teen and decided to re-read and was shocked by the homophobia and portraying sexual harassment/ unwanted attention as something to be expected and even joked about.

I really would not recommend this book to any young impressionable teenager.
