I wish more books were like this. No long drawn out back story, or plodding character development. Just bam! Straight into it. A few pages in and there's a whole world of hilarious stuff going on. This is one big passive aggressive note against the type of people who might write passive aggressive notes. Great fun, if a little far fetched in places, but it's almost in sitcom territory, so we can give it some comedic licence. Highly recommended.

P.s. I think I have a thing for novels featuring quirky families
