    Notting Hell is On it's Way to Reader Heaven... Just

    Picking up the book in the store, and quickly scanning the synopsis, I was delighted to find that this book could be a light and easy read. Switching off the television and sitting down with a tea in low light, I turned to page one.

    In an instant, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the perspective narrative was first-person present tense. Something different. Great. We are instantly thrown into the plot, and we soon learn of Claire's neurotic behaviour. We are introduced to Mimi, the opposite of Claire. The jealousy between the two, Claire has the house and income, Mimi has the children and loving husband, is clearly obvious from the start and continuous as the plot thickens and unfolds.

    A worthwhile read, but not entirely life-changing. At times, the language is hard to read, bogged down with jargon and useless talk from Fashion-Land, Population: Notting Hell. The 'friendship' between the two main protagonists is sometimes unbelievable, as the Claire and Mimi spend very little time together. But the twist at the very end makes the book very enlightening and spreads a smile across my face.

    An enjoyable read. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have a book that they must read right now.
