Didn't realise this was a collection of columns. I'd actually read lots of them already - and I find Lucy's writing pretty memorable so didn't re-read - but it still made me laugh out loud on a couple of occasions.
A collection of columns from 'The Guardian' from the past few years, organised into five broad categories. Some of the columns are amusing (although unfortunately the best lines are quoted in the introduction, rather dimming the humour when read in context later on). Some of them even made me feel a tug of kinship with the author. And others were trite, rather pointless and silly. Possibly this is inherent in having to produce a regular column, since inspiration won't strike every day.The writin [...]
My father always read the Guardian newspaper and years ago we enjoyed reading Sue Limb's column. For a while there was nothing that matched the humour, until Lucy Mangan.

Lucy Mangan is a force for good sense and reserve in a world of solipsistic rubbish and nonsense. She and I share a common phobia, for travel and a deeply held suspicion of excessive demonstrations of emotion. She's a glorious bookworm, thoroughly sensible and laugh out loud funny in her columns for The Guardian.
A collection of columns from 'The Guardian' newspaper from the past decade or so by Lucy Mangan. Mixture of good and bland but generally amusing and at odd times tears running down my face hilarious. If you read it, read the editor's introduction at the end because it steals some of the best lines and then it is monotonous reading them later.
Well, at first I really liked this book it was funny and well written, it was broken up into different sections and a different topic was written about on each entry and I liked that style, however it soon became an effort for me to pick it up as I found it less and less funny and I struggled to finish it.
lightweight, but funny
A lovely collection of Lucy's columns exploring her family and other disasters.
Excellent book, very funny from a clever and witty woman.

Laughed out loud several times and have never read a book that's required me to check the kindle dictionary as often!!
