another, from the Guardian ' A disturbing and thought-provoking novel about mental torment and the often blackly comic, mixed-up ways we view ourselves ans misread each other'. Probably, it was only Michael that got the most backgrounder but even that was not enough in my opinion as all I know is that he is estranged from her wife Elizabeth, and that they had a son (Dominic) who died at a very young age – so what? As recriminations fly in the tiny flat and New York shuts down in the blizzard, readers who are theatre fans might speculate on possible real-life inspirations for this bunch of screwed-up luvvies, but Julie Walters, though herself a national treasure of stage and screen, is much more interested in her cast's inner lives than in burlesquing her profession. I loved the overly flamboyant characters, reminiscent of the likes of Edina and Patsy, but the slapstick comedy and one-liners lost their effectiveness by being in a written format, where you rely on the readers sense of comedic timing. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

From the first page to page 39 I was completely lost trying to remember who was doing what, where and why.

Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. New and familiar characters abound, voiced by a bright mix of performers, including Kat Dennings, Regé-Jean Page, Emma Corrin, Michael Sheen, Kristen Schaal, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, Jeffrey Wright, and so many more, including fan-favorite narrators Simon Vance and Ray Porter. She is the author of MAGGIE'S TREE, a novel, and THAT'S ANOTHER STORY, her bestselling autobiography. Meanwhile Helena is mentally distancing herself from what she views as a lesbian pass by imagining herself eating spaghetti vongole in her favourite restaurant. Another point in the reading guide is a question on whether Julie Walters’ background is a factor for the reader in choosing to read this book.

Julia Walters’ prose is remarkable, that I can say – she was very descriptive of even the tiniest drop of blood. Still, each earns their moment of tragic dignity, and Walters never fails to allow pity where pity is due. I had high expectations of this book as a fan of Julie Walters but unfortunately I was left disappointed.And according to the residents of the Japanese island of Okinawa - the world's longest-living people - finding it is the key to a longer and more fulfilled life.

For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with.

There she is given the chance to undo her regrets and try out each of the other lives she might have lived.I was really looking forward to this book as expected great things from the author but honestly save your money. Pity - I'm a big fan of Julie Walters as an actress (which is why I thought I'd take a look), but I really didn't enjoy the book. As their mutual friend Helena is the toast of Broadway, stand-up comedian Cissie O'Brien, who is the nation's darling with her popular television series, decides to take the beautiful and troubled actress Maggie Salt to New York to see her. Imagine having three life-coaches who had been through the toughest mental and physical challenges; a crack team of problem-solvers who knew in their day job that one mistake could be the difference between life - and death. Sir Michael Caine knows a thing or two about gangs: whether that’s joining one as a kid, or playing them in movies for over 50 years.
