Review: Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging

Title: Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging
Author: Louise Rennison
Series: Confessions of Georgia Nicholson


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!"



I haven't read this book in a while, but I was chatting to my friend about it the other day, and realized  haven't written a review for this hilarious series.

This series, full of nine books called extremely amusing things, such as "It's Okay, I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers", and so on, is one of the funniest book series I have ever read. It is full of exaggerated from real life tales of a girl who finds herself so ugly, that she thinks she should live on Ugly Street, and how she ends up with (several) attractive boys.

I would recommend this book to any teenage girl who has ever suffered from daydreams about boys. Aka, most of the female population.

Georgia, our protagonist, is amusingly self-pitying, and rants in her diary about the woes of being a teenage. Her diary is the type of moan-filled book I'm sure a lot of girls would have loved to have written.

The Ace Gang, Georgia's CRAZY group of friends also offer an extra comedy factor to the mix, doing viking dancing, and offering up the same advice any girl would give when her friend needs cheering up about a boy.

All in all, if you are a teenage girl, you will probably like this book, and find yourself cackling away at the talk of knickers, egg-head uncles, and such, just like I do.
