Brilliant

Gripping from the first sentence. Well read by narrator. I will listen again that's for sure.

Not what I was expecting

Didn't really enjoy the story. I felt that the main character came across as the villain. This was furthered by the way it was narrated. I wasn't sure if we were supposed to like her or dislike her - I definitely disliked her. I also thought that the story featured running far more than it did. Perhaps my fault for not reading the synopsis properly? Definitely not for me.

main character is horrid

whilst I couldnt decide if I enjoyed this book or not, I loathed the main character. she certainly has a couple of screws loose.

A funny and enjoyable book

An engaging and original story, I couldn't guess where it was going. The narrator was brilliant, she got the characters perfectly.

enjoyed this but needed some research into sizes

I enjoyed the story but was frustrated by the bad fat girl rhetoric prevalent in this book. Size 22 isn't mammoth sized
