I would not recomend this book to anyone, it was a waste of time and my hard earn money. It was just plain awful.

 
  "Wish I Hadn't Recommended the Book to My Club!" by nbknight (see profile) 02/12/10

Okay, all said and done, my book club enjoyed our discussion of the book and it's theme – growing older – but none found it a "good read." Brit references and sayings were missed by us as American readers. The ironic thing is that our entire book club is made up of retired women, with many of us well over 60! We agree with the author that retirement does give you the "freedom" to do as you want. We also listened to a recording of a radio interview of her, and found it interesting.
