Okay, I feel horrible giving a Jen Lancaster book only 2 stars, but I honestly thought it was "okay" and not much more. I normally love JL, I think she's hilarious and perhaps it was my excitement over this book that led to my disappointment. It's nothing like the other ones, where the storyline is coherent and there's (somewhat) of a goal to reach at the end. While I loved the last chapter of My Fair Lazy, the rest felt forced and very little of it was about Jen becoming more cultured. A lot of the things I found interesting (like when she decides to "eat the world") weren't covered very much. It felt like a lot of filler...and not even the hilariously insane (and silly) filler that I'm used to from JL. I highly recommended her other three books to humor fans, but not this one.

John She used a lot of words to fill up the first half of the book, but they didn't really seem to add anything.
