Her diary is that of a mum driven to the point of distraction by wayward children, a dusperata where she competes with Eco-friendly school mothers and a best friend who needs a shoulder to cry on.
That was set in the ‘s but basically these two disperatw are very, very similar Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. She screws her husband over because he doesn’t constantly fan fragile her ego and then forces him to shoulder the blame because she’s that pathetic she can’t take responsibility for her own irrational actions. It was a good read, nothing special, but something amusing dispegata keep one oc A pleasant and enjoyable read.
When the expiry date is reached your computer deletes the cookie. If a Shirley Valentine-esque Irish writing style and UK’isms are uncomfortable for the American reader, it would affect their enjoyment of this book. This is unaa first Niamh Greene Book i read, judging by the title i new it wasn’t for my age range, nor social status but the Lead Character is just so fabulous you can’t not enjoy the book, it has her in rather cringeworthy situtations and but it’s very believeable and thats what i love its about this book; it’s ordinary people and how they cope with life, and that I think makes this a perfect summer ready, light and zesty.
I began reading it casalinva I was uha to have my hair cut and I was soon hooked, thoroughly enjoying peeking into the diary of a so-called demented housewife.

I found the narrator to be whingy and whiney, negative to the extreme, judgmental of other people, insecure, rude, shallow and unloving. But it isn’t even the authors somewhat lazy portrayal of these characters nor even the disservice done to stay-at-home mothers portrayed here as somewhat slovenly, tv watching, biscuit munching, celeb obsessed individuals that I found totally irksome so much as the pretentious, rude, and sexual portrayal of four year old pre-schooler ‘I want to wear a bikini top and hot pants and look sexy’ Katie.
Her marriage is getting stale and in danger of ending so it tells of the struggle to keep it but the lighthearted in which the story is told makes the book. Anyway all in all a decent book but nothing spectacular There were no surprises, just the steady day-to-day life of a housewife struggling to fight for his husband’s attention, whilst constantly exhausted by two screaming and very demanding children.
What I love most is the book cover: What really annoyed me is that she would constantly talk about losing weight and then go and eat an absurd amount of junk food. This is a re-read and its fun even after so many years. Sep 02, Lizzy Attwood rated it it was amazing. But let’s give some credit to full-time housewives cause I’m pretty sure most housewives around the world are not seriously driven demented by their breed.
The book was good and interesting the main character does treat her husband appallingly but to be honest he’s not much far behind when it comes to work and helping round the house.
I love blogging, so naturally I love blogwalking and reading other people’s blog. I’m also confident that housewife mothers nowadays do know how to divide their time accordingly and do have better things to dispsrata, instead of just watching daytime opera, slog around in their jogging pants and baggy tops, and stuffing endless cakes and biscuits down their throats! The situations are also massively exaggerated.
I found the central character quite unlikeable – which I know was probably how I was meant disperwta feel about her.
Jan 22, Marie Carlino rated it did not like it. Really boring but unexpected ending. I remember the only reason why people got into this book was because this book came out around the same time The Diary Of Bridget Jones hit the big screens and became a massive success, so as result, epistolary novels saw a surge in success, and everyone picked this book up thinking it was going to be like Bridget Jones.

On top of that, there’s the small matter of the Lone Father at the children’s play group who is clearly smitten and Susie’s passing interest in Posh’n’Becks, Wayne and Colleen, Brad’n’Jen’n’Angelina EG- I will not buy any more unnecessary clothes.

Trying to understand the main character and her completely illogical way of thinking made me kind of ashamed to be female.
Unfortunately it was far fucking from it. Apr 02, Lakshmi C rated it really liked it.

I remember not being able to even finish this book, because it was so bad. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Enjoyable, but dated, Irish, stay-at-home mom version of the original Bridget Jones’ Diary much better than the last installment by Helen Fielding. I bet many if not all mums will identify with Susie, the main character, and her amazingly chaotic life! All I read was a load of tosh from a spoilt middle class woman complaining about first world problems, and how hard it was sitting on your arse all day.
Aug 08, Kristi Sawyer rated it liked it Shelves: I would highly recommend that you leave this book firmly planted on its shelf in the bookshop or library.
