A book like no other. Honest and very, very funny. Some bits made me want to cheer - a sentence on parenting teenage girls was so good I may get it tattooed on myself, possibly in Hebrew.
Joyous, wise, reassuring and laugh-out-loud funny. I love these two women so much.
I want to be like Fi and Jane when I grow up.
Honestly these two will stop at nothing for attention.
Friends, comrades, naughty girls at the back of the class, Glover and Garvey adopt their trademark approach of "oh FFS why doesn't everyone just do one"... It made me howl and snort the G&T that I just knew was going to give me a 72 hour hangover if I had another one.
If books were bubble baths... this was a truly luxurious read - filled with warmth, wit and wisdom. I enjoyed it so much that I actually felt guilty afterwards - books shouldn't be this enjoyable should they? Pages of poignancy, laughter and honest sharing. Fi and Jane are no better than they should be. And that's saying an awful lot.
You'll laugh, you'll nod your head so vigorously in agreement that you'll end up with whiplash and you'll buy a copy of this book for all your friends for Christmas. If you loved the late, great Victoria Wood, then you'll love Fi and Jane too.
The broadcasting duo are on fine form... I predict this will be a pre-Christmas hit in book and audio format, proving, once again, this pair's relevance.
Glover and Garvey are smart and perceptive with a dry sense of humour and a knack of hitting the nail squarely on the head... [the book is] wise, laugh-out loud funny and, just like the authors themselves, it never preaches.
Hilarious and perceptive
If their radio incarnations are sensible and restrained, and their podcast selves freewheeling and prone to corpsing, the tone here lands somewhere in between. There is fluency and professionalism, but also intimacy and silliness that makes their podcast such a delight. To spend time with these two is to eavesdrop on a slightly sozzled, bracingly candid conversation between pals.
