Summary

When Jilly Cooper, then a young Sunday Times journalist, was asked to write a book on marriage, she had been married to Leo Cooper for a mere seven years. Now they are celebrating their Golden Wedding, and although the institution of marriage has changed a great deal since this book was first written, much of Jilly's advice – frank, fearless, often hilarious, but always wise – still holds good. From the wedding and the honeymoon to life afterwards, including how to deal with the in-laws and how to tell if you spouse is having an affair, she dispenses anecdotes, jokes, common sense and endless optimism and fun.

Disappointing

Would you try another book written by Jilly Cooper or narrated by Samantha Bond?

Have found other Jilly Cooper books very enjoyable. Samantha Bond has a pleasant enough presentation but the narration is too fast. The book has numerous topics and these blurr together as the narration rushes from one to another sometimes leaving you unsure as to whether you are still on the same topic or the following one!

What could Jilly Cooper have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Stuck to the kind of novels she is good at writing

How could the performance have been better?

See above poor narration as too fast

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Definitely nor!
