    This book couldn t have been unfunnier if it were about poor cows suffering from Mad Cow disease It s chick lit, not my favorite genre, but every now and then I come across a gem that I actually like This wasn t one of them.It s about a brand new mom who just wanted to buy some prunes to help move things along but instead winds up in jail after a series of stupid c

    It s a terrible terrible book So terrible that I kept reading it out of a kind of horrified fascination to see where the author was going with the story It s supposed to be funny but I didn t laugh out loud once Not even a chuckle.


  3. Meredith Walker Meredith Walker says:

    disappointing a rubbish story told in a crass manner by someone who should know better there is a fine line between sarcasm and humour and Kathy and Lette has totally missed it this time.

    I really struggled through this book To me Kathy Lette is a mixture of witty one liners and total vulgarity When she s good she s good but Mad Cows unfortunately fell into the latter category and stayed there throughout The subject matter being quite hard hitting the welfare of a baby while the mother is first arrested and then goes on the run and it really doesn t lend itself to the comic,

    Despite the serious nature of the plot, Mad Cows was a hilarious read from start to finish Maddy s a foreigner in England, has few friends, and faces a situation so much bigger than herself She does some crazy things, but in the end makes the best choice for herself and her baby.Though the book mostly felt like a light hearted read, Lette took jabs at perfect parents , you know the ones who know all there is to know about parenting and

    Sometimes you re desperate for something brainless and shallow to read in my case, I tend to get my hands on pulp paperbacks that my highly educated, intelligent, strategy consultant girlfriend leaves lying around the same person who repeatedly tries to explain to me why high powered female executives fight each other for fashion and gossip magazines on Friday evening commuter flights This was brainless and shallow, and somehow entertaining, I
