    One thought on “Queen Mum”

    1. This story follows the lives of Ally and her next door neighbour, Juno Juno, the seemingly perfect housewife, decides to enter a reality show called Queen Mum , which is essentially the same as the show Wife Swap , where Juno will swap houses with another mom for two weeks The story is told from Ally s point of view, and so we see Juno s side of the story from a distance, through Ally s eyes and the tv cameras While Juno is away, Ally must do without her best friend, and is forced to deal with h [...]

    2. I picked up this book in Budapest after I finished the book that I had brought with meI went to the bookstore and asked for a book by a Hungarian author translated into Englishey looked at me as if I was crazy, no such luck for some reason, I went exploring in the English books section and found this bookr some reason, it too me a long time to find something that I thought I would enjoy on my nine and a half hour plane ride the next day I thought this book was going to be all lightbut it surpris [...]

    3. Il libro era partito bene, facendomi riflettere parecchio su come diamo tante cose quotidiane per scontate e poi carino il fatto che si basi su un reality di fatto una cosa che non seguo in tv, ma l avevo trovata un idea originale Peccato che sia uno di quei libri senza fine, ovvero, lascia tanti punti in sospeso e a me i libri cosi mi lasciano sempre un po perplessa

    4. A good read Kate has taken the idea of a frivolous TV show and combined it with believable characters to drag you into a story of how relationships fare under duress This is a book that you will not want to put down.

    5. Loved it A very funny, witty insight to what happens between best friends when one becomes a minor celebrity due to being on a tv show called Queen Mum.

    6. As with all Kate Long s books, I really enjoyed this, despite the chicklit label I think, unlike most chicklit, her characters are realistic and complex as are the situations they end up in.

    7. Having read enjoyed other books by Kate Long, I was pretty sure I d like this one I wasn t disappointed This tale focuses on Ally, her friend neighbour Juno who signs herself up for the TV Show Queen Mum Wife Swap with voting The blurb says it all written with wit, empathy and incisiveness, is about friendship and love, recklessness and caution about how the camera, while it sometimes lies, can also reveal uncomfortable truths which is illustrated by the clips from the show, a touch I particular [...]

    8. Not what I was expecting The cover and description makes this seem like a light comedy I was expecting something along the lines of Shopaholic Well this wasn t light or comedic.While the premise is a woman going on a wife swap show, the actual story is about her best friend, Ally Ally is trying to deal with the twists and turns, and tragedy, that life has thrown at her She is struggling with her own identity and with where her life is She compared herself to her neighbour and best friend, whom [...]

    9. This book wasn t what I was expecting at all Juno signs up for a reality tv show Her husband gets on well with the swap wife and her teenage daughters enjoy the freedom Juno doesn t make such a positive impression on her swap family The book follows the aftermath of the programmes and the chinks it shows in relationships.

    10. I really liked the premise of Queen Mum, the fly on the wall reality tv show really appealed to me but I feel like something was lacking here and certain themes could have been taken further I did really enjoy it though for a light read.

    11. Not what i expected Based on the cover I thought it would be fluffy chick lit i.e perfect vacay reading when you re living on a boat Instead it was serious and slightly depressing, but in a good way if that makes any sense

    12. I bought this book as I have read two of her other books which I really enjoyed I was very disappointed with this book Not as good as the others I was skimming through some pages and was not interested in whether I finished it or not Come on Kate, do better than this next time

    13. Overall this just felt like a bit of a mess None of the characters were that pleasant and it was hard to care too much about any of them It was a quick read and ok for passing a few quiet lunchtimes but not very satisfying.

    14. I picked this book up to take to the beach, and it really surprised me It was a lot deeper than I expected, and I ended up really enjoying it

    15. Not much to say about this book, really The blurb tells it all It s light, relatively amusing, but not exactly ground breaking An okay way to pass a day, but there are much better books out there.

    16. Hilarious, made me laugh out loud Well written and another of Kate Long s fabulous reads Would definitely recommend as a holiday read

    17. Didn t like it as much as any of her others I found one of the characters unlikeable and the main character annoying for not being able to see her faults.
