Emma Corrigan climbs into our hearts from the start! The entire fiasco between her, Jack Harper, her boyfriend Connor, and her flat mates jemima and Lissy starts out funny, exciting, and irreverant.

However, as the pace slows down, this book reveals that its themes only run skin-deep. The characters become more like caricatures instead of real people as the story progresses, because the reader discovers that the characters are fighting for the most trivial wants ever heard of, and the reader is left generally dissatisfied and unsympathetic.

However, if you're into thick laughs and you don't give a rip about character motivation or a meaty plot structure this may be the perfect read for you!
