There are six things very wrong with my life:
1. I have one of those under-the-skin spots that will never come to a head but lurk in a red way for the next two years.
2. It is on my nose
3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room.
4. In fourteen days the summer hols will be over and then it will be back to Stalag 14 and Oberfuhrer Frau Simpson and her bunch of sadistic teachers.
5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home.
6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive.
In this wildly funny journal of a year in the life of Georgia Nicolson, British author Louise Rennison has perfectly captured the soaring joys and bottomless angst of being a teenager. In the spirit of Bridget Jones's Diary, this fresh, irreverent, and simply hilarious book will leave you laughing out loud. As Georgia would say, it's "Fabbity fab fab!"
Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, #1) Reviews
Hillariosity! This is another book, from the brits, that people either love or hate. I happen to love this series, and laughed so hard I actually cried. I think people who hate this book are turned off by the main character Georgia. She is vain, self centered, hormonal, ridiculous and, I think, absolutely fabulous. This is the first of a series and we are introduced to her mad little sister libby, her feral cat Angus, her Mum and Dad, and group of silly girlfriends. It's written as a diary and a lot of people like to compare it to Bridget Jones. I have never read Bridget Jones so I can't really comment on that. I can however say that I took this book with me on a trip and illicited many curious glances from strangers in the airport. They may have thought I was having a seizure, but in fact I as laughing my bum off.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a lot of fun to read. I loved Georgia. She was snarky, funny, sarcastic
and I loved every bit of it!
I don't have much to say about this book other than at many points this book was more than hilarious! It was hysterical!
The writing was quite good and the protagonist was interesting. She was the typical epitome of most teenage girls on the cusp between childhood and adulthood.
I felt it dragged on a bit toward the end. Over all though, it was funny, interesting and most of all, enjoyable.
Big thanks to Tatiana for recommending it to me!
This book was my bible back in '08.
Seriously. My friends and I would refer to this book whenever we had something that could be considered as "boy problems". In '08, I was 13/14, and I'd fallen in love with Aaron Johnson after watching the film so, of course, I had to read the book. It was funny and we could easily relate to it at the time, who am I kidding, I still like to consult Georgia Nicholson in the midst of a crisis.
Also Aaron Johnson
He was practically my first celebrity/fictional/pretend boyfriend. He was is so gorgeous.
LET ME LOVE YOU.
I got to the point where I couldn't read this book during silent reading time in my class, it made me laugh so hard. I'm not an easy touch for this type of humor - slapstick and outrageous. ATFFS, however, made me laugh so hard, I snorted. The epistolary nature of the narrative adds so much to the plot. A snippet about a girl who accidentally-on-purpose shaves off her eyebrows is cringingly amusing, but when it's told in five or six installments, each a few minutes apart, and that snippet weaves itself through the rest of the narrative in little comments like, "No news on the eyebrow front," there's no way to avoid laughing until your stomach aches. The fact of the matter is that Georgia is a tragic hero. You couldn't laugh so much if there wasn't something inherently tragic about her inability to enjoy life and admit it. She throws herself into frays in which it is obvious that she will be destroyed, and we cheer her on because she keeps trying. Georgia is who we want to be, because she succeeds through ridiculous perseverance. Read it and laugh, because weeping isn't far behind.
