I really enjoyed this as it put me in a good mood, made me laugh and made me cringe at times. It's written in a very easy to read diary style and a great read for those miserable autumn evenings.

Susie is spoilt, self-obsessed and smug.
This is not a good thing for light-hearted reading requirements. Marian Keyes understands this. Her heroines may be selfish, vain and egotistical but they are never smug. Susie has everything she is supposed to want. A rich husband, a lovely home, two children - Jack who thinks he’s a dog, and Katie, who wants to be a P**** Cat Doll. Telling, isn’t it?
Poor, bored little Susie tries to make her life more interesting by engineering encounters with men she fa

The book was written as a diary which makes it easier to step into the characters shoes (if you want to). It's far from a serious read as there are issues Susie finds herself in that are totally avoidable; she has a slight smugness to herself which can be off putting and makes you forget she's a mother of two not a teenager- at times the angst is distracting.

Don't get me wrong though this book will make you laugh- A LOT. It's rather unapologetic and hilarious to read.

This was so badly written that I couldn't finish it. The main character is silly and shallow.

If you want a good 'chick lit' book about acquiring a celebrity friend, I recommend Gill McNeil's Divas Don't Knit, which is everything this is not....

There were funny parts, but the book just didn't make that of an impact. Susie was kinda annoying and too self-centered for me to even care about what happens to her in the end. It was too Bridget-Jonesy to me, and though that book was marvelously funny, this book failed in comparison. Oh well. At least it entertained me, in bits and pieces.

A light read that I found quite funny in parts. I believe there is another book in the series and I would definitely buy it based on reading this book.
amazingly funny book. this authour never fails to make me laugh. Hope she has some more books coming out soon

I hated this book. I only finished it in the hope that the main character would somehow redeem herself and not continue to be pathetic and shallow.

Fun, easy, quick, familar with characters from 1st book. Took a bit to get going thought it was a bit repeatitive at first but then got into it. Good fun read, enjoyable.

A fantastic follow up to Secret Diary of a Demented Housewife. Again, lots of twists (although some predictable) and lots of humour.
