    If this book were fiction like Momzillas then perhaps it could raise a smile and you d think no one could be like this surely Then you realise it s not fiction it s real It s probably one of the most irritating books I ve ever read The author, a writer, and mother to 3 hideous children, writes a diary of her year It highlights all the worst things about modern life over parenting, yet with badly behaved and rude children, snobbishness, and the need to have your children go to the right 20,000 a year school what can they teach them for that price I d expect my child to leave at least as a Nobel Peace Prize winner or a genuis like Einstein Anyone remotely normal and working class could never relate to this woman and I for one am glad I don t The writer comes across as shallow, lazy, whiny, disorganised, despite having nannies and au pairs, and obsessed with trivialities If you don t want to raise your blood pressure then avoid this at all costs

    The author of this book is sheltered, bratty, whiny as hell, and a horrible mother She relates tales of her youngest son, who is 6, wandering about in the neighbors houses watching their tv and raiding their pantries The point of the story is supposed to be that her son is a bit demanding but all I was thinking is that she is an AWFUL mother to have a full time nanny and STILL manage to lose her child Though to her, when her six year old is out wandering the surrounding homes in her neighborhood she doesn t consider him lost, she is perfectly fine with it She whines about making a real breakfast for her children, when the nanny will clean up her mess and it isn t like she has a job anyway She loses two of her children in the course of the year by straight up not paying attention to where they are and then feels sorry for herself that the police must think she is a terrible mother She whines about how her poor dog feels useless because she is spayed and she doesn t have a job like the dogs on tv I am not making that up, this insane woman apparently believes that This book is meant to be a light, humorous read, but it made me very agitated This woman is incapable of taking care of herself, and with a full time nanny AND a house cleaner, she is incapable of being ANY kind of decent parent I feel sorry for her children.

    A mother who is staying at home, has an Au Pair and a cleaning woman and still complains that she has too much to do rolleyes It s not a coherent story but rather short columns And while they might be good for publishing in a magazine, it s not enough for a whole book in my opinion I did miss a storyline there.Apart from that I didn t find it funny, there was not a single page or even sentence that made me laugh.

    I really enjoyed this book as a working class mum, I thoroughly enjoyed this satirical piss take of the upper middle class mother a woman so sheltered, so privileged and so bloody useless, she can t cope flying solo despite a cleaner and all three of her kids being in school She absolutely must get an au pair sorted even with a mother in law, a team of midriff baring babysitters, the cleaner and the au pair, she still manages to lose 2 of her kids how i chuckled..what she s real SHE S BORIS JOHNSON S SISTER AND ALL THIS IS TRUE I have literally just found this out in reviews, then I googled to be sure I honestly thought this was written by a middle class mum with a sense of humour, who d witnessed this kind of insanity herself and combined many stories into one character so I had to change my 3 star review despite my enjoyment, i too had to flip bad To remind myself of the characters and the font is stupidly large, obviously to make up for lack of content, I think this review is longer than the whole book to a 1 star as a comic tongue in cheek poke at the posh, brilliant, but real life shocking really shocking.

    Awful I didn t even manage to finish this The main character who apparently is a real person had such a shallow and sheltered life that I don t know how her publisher expected the average woman to relate to her I m sure there was a whole chapter in this book about how the woman felt bad for get her cat neutered, because it meant that the cat could never experience the joy of having babies SHE S A CAT The rest of it was all about nannies and elaborate kids birthday parties and ponies, and it was all so BORING I don t how Carol found this book interesting both me and my mum hated it.

  7. says:

    The cover of this book greatly glamourized what it contains unecessarily You would think it is about a mother s life and packed with drama and comedy, but it isn t It is just a boring diary with details that no onw wants to know The book is written in a seemingly funny way but has no actual funny content at all I am not opposed to the fact that she is a rich mother who has many privileges and a relatively easy life but still complains about it I just don t see the point of the book even after finishing it to the last word

  8. says:

    It isn t nearly as funny as the description promises The writing ranges from brilliant to mediocre to pathetic One keeps waiting for something to happen Albeit it is a diary , and nothing spectacular must necessarily take place in daily life in a span of a year Yet one feels as if there is no agenda or clear thought in laying the happenings down into a book.The family s role is poorly developed, peripheral and inconsistent The sub title is completely removed from the contents of the book.Best browsed in one sitting Not worth than that.

    Interesting enough light reading

    I thought that this was a fiction book but have discovered it wasn t It was an ok book if it was fiction as you think maybe there is some person out there that is a complete idiot to the real world Now discovering that this is based on her life you can t believe that this person exists and rather than it being based in several people it s actually based in just the one I don t plan on reading this book again
