Not quite as funny as Lemonade but still worth the read, plus you get to find out what Caroline ended up doing. Lots of funny dialogue & gags, luke warm plot, same memorable characters. Almost 4 stars but just short.
A very entertaining and humorous read and a lite sexual overtone between strong characters. Looking forward to reading the next book!
What a stunning first novel! 40 years ago, I only read it because I worked in the ad agency which gave him his title, but I am so glad that I did. It's not great literature, but it is thoroughly engaging. The plot has a serious undertone: what happens to a marriage when the much-wanted baby fails to materialise? It is written in a delightful light-hearted style: one can imagine enjoying a very long car journey with a companion who could talk like this.
I found this in the family bookshelf when I was about 14.
Basically what you have here is a man writing a story about life, and lost loves, and betrayall, in a padestrian and tollerant delivery.
You never get to know about the author, ( i.e. " the first person delivering the dialogue"), in any other context other than that of the story. So thats what it is - a story.
Sounds boring doesnt it - its excellent (any book that has a pub called the planet of the apes - [nick named after the social standing of the clientelle] - has to be a classic.
And this book is!, - (not because i say so, but because if you know any 50 yr olds who read it - and many did in thier time - they will smile and tell you it is).
I think I might read it again actually - its been about 20 years and I still remember it enough to waste my time writing a review for the hell of it.
Look - if you are 55+ get it from the frigging library. You will buy a copy after reading it. Ple! ase email me if youve read it.
Hope and despair in equal measure. GB picks his words for their impact. Soft and easy read for a romantic weekend.
