    My takeaway Marriage is boring and pointless but it sure does make for some great sex with other people Also, parenting is hard so just don t do it I mean, sure, have kids but just don t bother with the parenting part.Talk about an alienating read The only similarity I share with the main character is that I am a married white woman and even I felt offended on behalf of affluent British mothers everywhere And onc

    I couldn t get through this book Because I am a stay at home mom I thought I would identify with this book, but no The entire plot line about the mom wanting, dreaming and justifying having an affair left me cold I understand that staying with your kids might not be the most exciting thing to be doing, but having an affair with someone is not how I choose to add excitement to my life and I definitely don t want to s

    A very funny and entertaining read Has you laughing out load at times and is very realistic with things such as the competitiveness of other parents, even in doing their child s homework so it gets a good mark Quite well written, only downside, didn t really like the plot line at the end with the hotel ect, didn t think the MC would actually do that All in all a good book and fun to read

    An easy read that s like an old friend comforting and entertaining.We all know someone who is or will be a Yummy Mummy or an Alpha Mum or a Slummy Mummy or a Sexy Domesticated Dad We all have that friend who will be in one relationship after another and never settles down.Perhaps this book would appeal to a middle class audience I cannot relate to the lifestyles at all But to the situations and the characters I think fon

    My neighbor gave me this book and told me it was really funny and my first thought was that she doesn t know me at all This type of book really doesn t interest me, but after reading the back with an endorsement from Anna Wintour of all people I figured it might be a quick, entertaining read I brought it on a road trip and with nothing else to do, I started reading it The whole time I was complaining to my husband about how

    This made a perfect summer holiday read, light and amusing with a serious undercurrent, and I identified strongly with the main character, Lucy Sweeney, a frustrated stay at home mum of three young children, mothers like me, the slummy mummies, the muddlers and befuddlers, the ones who don t know what to do when a spare minute comes their way because it is so rare, wearing old dresses that have stretched with us over the years

    I kind of hate to put 4 stars on such a light and silly book but I really did like it and found it to be much clever than I had thought that it would be Hailed a The Bridget Jones of Motherhood I expected the silly and exaggerated circumstances of being stay at home mom, however there was a lot of wisdom too I found myself saying, yeah, yeah, I do that too or oh yes I have totally thought that too Lucy gets herself into situation

    I found it quite hard to rate this book On the one hand it was trashy, unbelievable and most of the characters, especially the main one, were totally unlikable On the other hand there were several moments that had me laughing out loud and it was a quick, fun and easy read As a stay at home Mummy myself I found I was able to relate to some of Lucy Sweeney s emotions but definitely not her actions as they seemed cruel and cold rather than

    Brilliant, smart and funnyYou would never expect a piece of mom lit to turn out as a sophisticated essay about marriage and motherhood Slummy Mummy comes quite as a surprise, being not only smart, witty and extremely funny, but the most important of all, giving astonishingly precise account of a woman in her midlife crisis As the heroine s pedantic husband put it, the midlife crisis is discontent with the status quo, restlessness, question
