Journal Entry 1 by -Baghira- from Enskede, Stockholm Sweden on Tuesday, February 11, 2014

This book has not been rated.

The day her twin children leave the house, housewife Eva decides to go to bed and stay in there for a year. This causes all kinds of different reactions from her husband, her family, her neighbours, even people not known to her before..

Funny idea and cool writing style. The book was really fun to read - but after about 3/4 of it I had the feeling the author didn't really know how to end it..and as it stops for Eva to have fun staying in bed, also the fun of the book declines a bit..

Journal Entry 4 by Gealach at Nacka, Södermanland Sweden on Friday, March 14, 2014

7 out of 10

This was a funny, although I had expected more from Sue Townsend, since I really enjoyed "Adrian Mole" and "The Queen and I".

I agree with Baghira about the end, I think it ended a little too abruptly.

But I did enjoy the book anyway. I'm glad I took it with me.

I'm going to start a bookray with this.

This arrived safely in the Swiss Alps. I hope to get to it soon, but first have one or two other rings to tackle, not to mention end-of-term-related work. Thanks so much for sending and making available.

I have to say this was not really my cup of tea. Parts of this were quite amusing, but on the whole I found most of the characters simply unpleasant and the whole premise too irritating. I liked Alexander best, but one had to wonder why he was so patient with Eve.
I've actually read this in Mallorca, but as it's quite expensive to send books from Spain and I'll be in France in a few days (where the next reader lives), I'll send from there. thanks so much for making this available!

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

As planned, this travelled with me from Switzerland to Mallorca, back up to Switzerland and now to France. I didn't really register that it would be Easter weekend so although the book has been here since before the weekend, I've only been able to get this in the post today. Thanks so much for making this ring available.
Enjoy, Icila!
