Cinthia | 5702 comments Excited to join this. I’ve been eyeing for a long time.


Karen Barber | 10004 comments Didn’t know anything about this, and the topic is something I’d normally run a mile from (sorry). It sounds darkly humorous, so we’ll see.


Karen Barber | 10004 comments Opening chapter suggests dark humour-at least, I assume the writer is not being serious.


Karen Barber | 10004 comments Up to ch5. Can’t take these wholly seriously. (view spoiler)


Karen Barber | 10004 comments Up to ch10. (view spoiler)


Cinthia | 5702 comments I’m not sure I like them all footnotes.


Karen Barber | 10004 comments Up to ch16. The footnotes are easy to ignore (they certainly don’t add much). Very over-the-top style, but it’s making its point.

Karen Barber | 10004 comments Up to ch29. Really hope the girls show what they’re made of now.


Karen Barber | 10004 comments Finished-a riot of oddness. Not necessarily one I’d recommend, but entertaining enough.


Cinthia | 5702 comments Ch. 1- 3 (view spoiler)
