A light, humorous story guaranteed to lift your mood

The characters in this story remind me of a friend of mine who has always claimed the dating scene is every bit as horrendous as Jane Costello describes. It's a lightweight story about dating, shoes and too much pressure about personal appearance, but don't dismiss this book on those grounds. The writer skilfully draws you into the characters lives and gets you frustrated at their actions. I guess I would be cast as a Mum to these characters, but imagine many who read the book would feel as frustrated as I did at their bad decisions and inability to see what's been there all along under their noses. The dialogue is brilliantly done and it's full of humour - some of it acerbic and hilarious- I laughed out loud in places. It's nice to see the guy having the "make over" for a change and the writer subtly puts across the double standards between men and women in the subsequent events. The story kept me interested unlike some in this genre where I often get bored with the characters and don't care what happens. That's not the case here, the main character is bright and funny, you feel you know her and want to find out if it all turns out okay for her. Alex Tregear is a great narrator with a gift for accents. She delivers the humorous lines just right, but there were some surprising pronunciation errors that jarred me out of the story. Still, a very good performance and a worthwhile listen.
