OK – This is a hilarious adult spoof on the merry-go-round of modern day internet dating!
What’s it about? - Little Miss Shy, now middle aged as she is over 30!, decides it’s time to look for Mr Right.
What can you say about the story telling? – Roger Hargreaves, dead pan but tongue in cheek – sends Little Miss Shy on her tempestuous love journey! Each page reveals another clever analogy with the whole charade of internet dating. You cannot fail to smile!
What did you think of the characterisation? – Little Miss Shy is probably characteristic of many women who are contemplating internet dating. She is shy – especially about the length of her leg hair! – and taking advice from her mother and her best friend Little Miss Contrary, who of course is an online dating expert!
What was good about reading this book? – I loved the way Roger Hargreaves incorporated the nuances of modern day online dating into the story (has he done internet dating himself I wonder?). We follow the story as Little Miss Shy joins the Dating Site (Mr Mendr!), writes her profile and poses for her internet photograph. Then we read about the trials and tribulations of her dates – This is a no spoiler review so that’s all I can say about that!
(But in my novel ‘Dating Daisy’ - I met, a Mr Tiny, a Mr Magic and a Mr Tickle - myself! It’s in the book! Then I did meet Mr Clever’s son – the lawyer - It’s true!)
What didn’t you like? – Nothing!
How did reading the book make you feel? – This little book is extremely funny, gives a big bang for the buck! A friend bought it for me as a dinner party present. I loved it, and bought two copies for 2 other friends immediately. It’s a great idea for a book. It will grace any coffee/dinner table, and promote a lot of laughs and a lot of discussion.
Well done to Roger Hargreaves!
Would you recommend this book? – Absolutely! Without giving anything away – watch out for the dark horse at the end!!
How many Daisies for overall readability and enjoyment?
