I swear, I would NEVER again read this book in public. I must have turned tomato red more than half a dozen time just trying to get through the book. Don't get me wrong, the book was fairly entertaining. It's the fact there was a lot of swearing and barely any sense of decency in it that embarrassed me. I mean, how do you read a book where it mentioned the word "Orgasm" (with the exception of a Medical Journal, thank you very much) in its chapter title? Other than that, I don't think I have any problem with it. The story, like I said, was fairly entertaining. Maybe I was being biased seeing I'm not a fan of chick lit. Or maybe I had watched much too much sappy love movies when I was little. Maybe it was just a bit too predictable. Still, I liked the humor in it. Ms Koomson, I could say that she's a bold writer. There was less than pleasant usage of words and comparison. But, if you manage to overlook it, you'd find it's not so bad after all... I might just read another book of hers. Just not in the bus...

Jess Perhaps try the Icecream Girls. A much darker read but wonderful characters.
