Years ago I read 'The Queen And I' and I loved it so I was looking forward to another funny read from Sue Townsend.
The book did make me laugh out loud at times but on the whole I was a bit underwhelmed. The story was far too over the top, which combined with characters who were unbelieveable made for a very unrealistic story. I couldn't relate to any of the characters and didn't even feel much sympathy for the main character, Eva, finding her quite selfish as I don't think enough was done to explain why she took to bed for a year.
As far as books go, this one is an easy read, and would be great if you wanted a very light hearted, funny read.
Title: The Woman Who Went To Bed For A Year.
Author: Sue Townsend.
