Madeline Wolfe is a mischievous, mutinous, high-rise (the shortest she�d ever been was �tall for her age�) Aussie redhead, who can open beer bottles with her teeth and is on first name terms with every bartender in Bangkok. She�s a woman in control of her life, and no man is ever going to tell her what to do.

So how come she�s ended up twelve thousand miles from home, in ra...more

Pithy but pun-laden. Easy to read but didn't connect with the main character.
This was another of my Hay-on-Wye second-hand haul and I doubt I'll ever read anything from the same author. Just not my cup of tea.
I'm not really into chick lit but this was light and easy to read.
Aussie Madeline Wolfe has left her home, her surfboard and her hemisphere for the new man in her life. Alexander Drake, indisputed King of the TV jungle, gives the best cunnilingus this side of a detachable shower nozzle. He's also the kind of bloke who goes through the Tunnel of Love holding his own hand. By the time Maddy discovers that it's not just Alex's feet but his entire body that's made of clay, she's taken a pregnancy te...more
I like her writing and her jokes, but this was a depressing story.

The first 37 pages are rather funny but the remainder of the book sucks. It's bitch, bitch, bitch by the female character who is in love with a married man who claims he's going to leave his wife and kids but doesn't. Oh but she looooves him and wants him. blah, blah, blah

This is the first and last book I will read by this author.

The story isn't too bad but the pun-rate is over the top. Can't help but feel that Kathy Lette is hitting me over the head with how clever she is to think up all these bon mots. Never mind that she has already used half of them in previous novels. Reasonable way to waste an afternoon
Oh God what an awful book. I picked it up when there was nothing left to read. I didn't expect much, maybe a few easy laughs, but what a horror of a book. Dull, repetitive and written in the style of daytime television thrown onto the page. Couldn't stand to keep reading. Avoid.

Was hoping for light summer reading but found this book very irritating. Especially the main character and her lover. I laughed at a couple of the puns only - mostly just cringed. Not my thing at all.
This was a fun laugh out loud read.

If only Goodreads existed before. :) I remember this book being really funny, but I don't remember anything else. Characters or the plot, just that I laughed a lot.
It's supposed to be a humour book, but it's just an awful and ridiculous one, very poor story and boring style. I give one star since there's no zero stars option.
Funny and amusing. I didn't think I would like this book but I found that I had a hard time putting it down.

As always Kathy's book is funny, witty, and hillarious.
Lotsa of swearing but I find it hilarious.
hilariously funny, and sad at the same time.

Boring. Samey chicklit
I could so relate to this book loved it
A bit of fluff but great for a chuckle!

Kathy Lette divides her time between being a full time writer,
demented mother (now there's a tautology) and trying to find a shopping trolley that doesn't have a clubbed wheel.

Kathy first achieved succés de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, now a major motion picture.

After several years as a singer with the Salami Sisters and a newspaper columnist in Sydney and New York (collec...more
