Read in December, 2009

I'm not sure what to rate this book. It was laugh out loud hilarious at times. My husband kept giving me funny looks, because I would laugh so hard and so often. I love her writing style and identify with the "slummy" mummy of the novel. I know some people felt that her predicaments were absurd and her own fault, but being the mom of 3 boys, I really identified with that aspect of her life. That being said, however, I can't rate the book high because I hated the premise of the book... any book that revolves around whether or not to embark on an affair can't get a high rating for me. Plus, the language got really bad towards the end.

I'd like to read something else from the author, where the book isn't about affairs, because I did identify with her sense of humor and writing style. I'm just not interested in reading about people's affairs and desires for affairs. I wish she had just left it about a mom of 3 boys... I can get behind that.
