it was amazing

The date should read, read in August 1990, again in 2005 and every year since. I love this book. It was the first Jilly Cooper I ever read and although I've read them all since it remains my favourite.
Set in the world of television it heaves with strong, handsome,talented men and glamorous, intelligent women.The plot is strong and carries the book and the prose is tight and very witty. It's set in the Rutshire countryside and Jilly gives us a wonderful feel for the area and the remarkable people who live in it. I re-read it in the autumn when I'm tired and starting to feel cold and it never fails to cheer me up.I believe it to be a perfect example of its genre. I won't say more about the plot, it's better not to know what happens the first time and if you've never read a Jilly Cooper start with this one-you won't regret it.
