If you grow up being likened to the "Anti-Christ" by a mother with as much warmth as an arctic glacier, it has to have some effect... right? Shame Katie Roberts didn't realise that before she married serial womaniser Eddie Roberts, before she embarked on a clandestine affair with a catholic priest and definately before she gave her heart to gorgeous commitment phobe, Robbi ...more

I enjoyed this book. Katie Roberts comes across as a sassy, vunerable and likeable. The book is quirky but I couldn't put it down, I wanted to know what happened next. It has a few unexpected turns of events which were a nice surprise. It has humour whilst also dealing with deeper issues. A good read.

"Fandango in the Apse" was an absolute pleasure to read. The story is told in a casual and very comfortable first person POV. You never feel like you're reading an author's creation. From the very beginning I was sold that a real person named Katie Roberts was telling me her story. The style is effortless and Katie is so very human.

The book is not linear insomuch as Katie tends to meander in her topic choices. Just as real people start to tell a story and get sidetracked by a thought or a memory

Reminiscent of Angela's Ashes and Shirley Valentine, it is the shameless, raw, unabridged confessional style that gives this book merit in its genre. Using strong colloquial language, the author takes a gloves off approach in this light & easy read book with more than a few wickedly naughty bits. This un-abridged confessional has shocking revelations. There is a place and setting that reminds me of East Enders, local village, of backyard gossip over the fence. Very regional and real.

Hilarious and Heartfelt! A great read.

Some books you just can't put down and this is one of them! Fandango in the Apse! is told from the main character, Katie Roberts, POV, and she is absolutely hilarious! Her straightforward, cut-to-the-chase attitude kept me happily turning pages as fast as I could to see what self-sabotaging behavior she was up to next. I was even sharing Katie's outrageous plight with my husband.
But all is not rosey in Katie's world as you learn about her disfunctional child

I genuinely enjoyed reading Fandango. It felt like having a good catch-up session with an old friend that you haven't seen for years - the authors conversational style, complete with digressions and tangents made for an easy read. I wanted to know what happened next for Katie, I was fascinated by her relationship with her mother, and the damage it caused. Great book, I want to read more by Jane Taylor now!
