  • After hearing about this book on the radio, I ordered it in at our local library. I'm very pleased I did, as I've finished it in one super-long sitting. I laughed most of the way, but there is definitely a bit of sadness in the book, too. From the te reo classes to references to popular culture, it is a uniquely NZ book, but I'd say people all over would feel for the main character in the book, no matter their background.


  • Familiar setting (contemporary Wellington), but overall meh. Eirlys laughed out loud in several places, but I found it all rather ho hum.


  • Ka aroha au i tenei pukapuka! I love this book. It made me laugh in recognition - as a left leaning Pakeha who feels like our beautifil country is going down the gurgler. Just read it!
