My Mum's Review: The Slap


My Mum is off work at the moment as she isn't well at all. That's not why I'm laughing! I'm laughing because she is reading The Slap at the moment and text me the following:

'The Slap is gratuitously vulgar. It is like If No One Speaks of Remarkable Things. An author with unconnected ideas who tenuously links them. The character chapters are not exploring the effect of the slap, just giving the author license to use his disconnected character studies. Put that on your blog and smoke it. I am now reading the slap to end as research into the gratuitously vulgar. Except for some quotes I can use and claim as my own genius like thank drunk I'm God.'

I have read The Slap and you will find my comparison of the book and TV series here.

Anyway, thought I'd share what Mummy Book Geek has to say!

Happy Reading
