    Losing it I nearly lost the will to live, very rarely I give up on a book, but I had to with this one Persevered for quite a few chapters hoping it would become the the hilarious laugh out loud book it was promised to be in all the blurb Didn t even raise a smile Wish I had readreviews on it, before instead of after, as I may not have bothered with it at all, so many of them said they had given up abandoned it Losing it I nearly lost the will to live, very rarely I give up on a book, but I had to with this one Persevered for quite a few chapters hoping it would become the the hilarious laugh out loud book it was promised to be in all the blurb Didn t even raise a smile Wish I had readreviews on it, before instead of after, as I may not have bothered with it at all, so many of them said they had given up abandoned it

    Nothing funny about it I had to give up because Millie is one of those awful characters to whom things happen and who are so weak that they can t stick up for themselves at any level, even to the extent of not being able to correct someone who persistently gets her name wrong Avoid at all costs would be my advice.

    I read the first chapter and I cannot force myself to tryThe heroine Millie didn t seem like my kind of a heroine and well, I simply do not want to read about her.

  4. says:

    Read half of it, waiting for it to get funny and then gave up Usually read a book a week or less, still trying to get through this ages after starting it and had to abandon.

    Well this has been a long time coming, one of the Countries best loved Comedienne s has finally written a debut novel, and this has been worth the wait Losing It is a very easy to ready novel that you will find hard to leave alone, it moves along at an easy pace and is packed with laugh out loud moments.Set in London and the central character Millie who has reached a mid life crisis a divorcee now facing losing her home, short of money and rapidly short of patience and add to this depressed Mi Well this has been a long time coming, one of the Countries best loved Comedienne s has finally written a debut novel, and this has been worth the wait Losing It is a very easy to ready novel that you will find hard to leave alone, it moves along at an easy pace and is packed with laugh out loud moments.Set in London and the central character Millie who has reached a mid life crisis a divorcee now facing losing her home, short of money and rapidly short of patience and add to this depressed Millie was a successful writer as an agony aunt for a Women s magazine but her star has waned in recent times and now Millie is struggling to cope with her world that seems to crashing all around her, the only thing on the up is her weight and here the story really starts.Out of the blue, Millie has been approached to become the face of a new diet pill and all the fame andimportantly fortune that goes along with this There is of course one drawback as there always is Millie has to lose three stone in three months It is impossible not to like Millie and even some of her friends as you will discover when you read Losing It Millie decides to ask for an advance ahead of the weight loss and heads off to foreign shores to visit Mary, her daughter While there she hopes to pick up a rather nasty illness that will make her weight loss easier if that is at possible Add to the plot loan sharks who are after their money and various hideous weight loss programmes such as colonic irrigation, laxatives and various other dubious ideas When you read Losing It there is a chance that you will lose it, this reviewer read this while in hospital having a major colon procedure so it is at times really very funny and has so many great moments that many will relate to Though how many will admit to colonic irrigation as an aid to weight loss that point I think we will gloss over quickly For a debut novel Lederer has written a charming, at times moving but most memorable a very funny book that is worth visiting RECOMMENDED

    Had to abandon this Kept waiting for the laugh out loud funny which I needed at time of reading and it never happened What kept me going was the glowing review from Stephen Fry who said it was desperately funny Got to page 258 then did an obligatory skim to the end Writing very choppy, with declarative sentences, one after the other Meant to be a deadpan style, I guess But it just didn t work, the way, say Brigitte Jones Diary did Wasn t sure how I was supposed to feel about the main Had to abandon this Kept waiting for the laugh out loud funny which I needed at time of reading and it never happened What kept me going was the glowing review from Stephen Fry who said it was desperately funny Got to page 258 then did an obligatory skim to the end Writing very choppy, with declarative sentences, one after the other Meant to be a deadpan style, I guess But it just didn t work, the way, say Brigitte Jones Diary did Wasn t sure how I was supposed to feel about the main character, Millie Was she empty headed, smart, or what It bounced around, never really settling into a believeable character She swallowed the Feng Shui thing whole, plus read self help books and The Secret without questioning, yet was meant to be a fairly successful writer and adept poet Nobody else in the book made up for Millie s lack, either

    I read this book almost one year ago and still I can t forget it, which usually is a good sign, but not in this case It confused the hell out of me, and the humour was on the border of absurd and it felt much too pushy and much too forced, and in fact it wasn t funny at all It seemed the author has just tried too much and, unfortunately, failed I couldn t conect with the characters and well, I kept reading hoping that it s going to turn into something different, something worth my time S I read this book almost one year ago and still I can t forget it, which usually is a good sign, but not in this case It confused the hell out of me, and the humour was on the border of absurd and it felt much too pushy and much too forced, and in fact it wasn t funny at all It seemed the author has just tried too much and, unfortunately, failed I couldn t conect with the characters and well, I kept reading hoping that it s going to turn into something different, something worth my time Sadly, not The writing style with its choppy, short sentences was probably meant to be like this, on the modern side, a deadpan style, but It Just Didn t Work Shame had great hopes about this one
