Hi, today I’m reviewing Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse. Take six.


Okay. This book is darkly funny, to say the least. It’s about this woman who works at a low-level job at a newspaper. She aspires to do more. She aspires to be a writer. So she’s working at this job and she has this list of people who have pissed her off, basically, who have done things to her, or she perceives that they’ve done things to her, something like that. Anyway, she has a lot of dark thoughts about various people, even just random people who piss her off now and then that are very funny to read while you’re reading the story.

But she also has this group she hangs out with, these women who kind of talk obsessively about fashions and marriage and things that she mocks. But, at the same time, she’s got this little dog, and I’m picturing this woman living on Fifth Avenue or something, but it takes place in England. So anyway, but it was just funny to read this thing. This woman has a very distinctive personality, and the humor is just, as one person put it, outrageous. Yeah, definitely. So it’s almost disturbingly funny. That’s what I’ll tell you. So I give this one high marks. Five stars for Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse. Thanks, and I’ll talk to you later.
