T was rather mildly pointlessLike I said the idea for the novel was interesting But somebody Against All Odds else should have written it Kay Burley is not a writer I m sorry but if Iver hear her call herself one I ll probably smash my TV She d have been better off getting it ghost written it would have been infinitely less cringe inducing A novel shouldn t make me feel Jingling Daddys Bells BDSM Menage embarrassed to be reading it Despite finding it anasy read I did spend most of the time wondering where Kay got the inspiration for her writing She must have seriously read the ntire Mills and Boon catalogue before sitting down to write because it s toe curlingly bad It wasn t racy it wasn t juicy it was just bad As much as I love Tasmina Perry as an author I would love to know how she thinks First Ladies is a juicy read Unless she blended it up and drank it then I suppose it could indeed be juicy I ve got no idea who the novel is based on although the Internet tells me Tony Blair Personally I hope not That s just gross and well I doubt ole Tony would be happy frankly Fact is I don t want to know who it s about I just want to get as far away from the book as I can and it ll be a sad sad day if Kay writes another one Kay Burley we do not need you in the Chick Lit world Honestly you re not helping our cause I confess I got this book out of my local library a couple of weeks ago and only just got it out from under the bed yesterday The shenanigans of politicians of very persuasion are well known throughout the world The First Lady no matter what country or political party is shown gazing adoringly at her Against All Odds errant husband as they stand hand in hand facing the media as he confesses what a bad boy he s been but he can redeem himself he s a good person really This of course is solely because of the magnificent woman by his side his soul mate his best friend Flashing taxpayer paid for teeth he leaves the room waving convivially to the multitudes having promised to doverything within his power to right the pain he has caused to his wife and familySound familiarYes because it has been played out a thousand times and will continue to be the fare of choice when the ratings are low on TV and a great man has been caught with his knickers below his kneesThis story is Sleep, Circadian Rhythms, and Metabolism exactly that scenario and I just loved it Well written funny and sad with a killernding Kay Burley has done a fantastic job in presenting a novel which I thoroughly Treasons, Stratagems, And Spoils enjoyed and will recommend to anyone andveryone.
