Book review: In at the Deep End

By Kate Davies
Published by The Borough Press

Synopsis: Until recently, Julia hadn’t had sex in three years.

But now:
• a one-night stand is accusing her of breaking his penis;

• a sexually confident lesbian is making eyes at her over confrontational modern art;

• and she’s wondering whether trimming her pubes makes her a bad feminist.

Julia’s about to learn that she’s been looking for love – and satisfaction – in all the wrong places…

How did this book end up in my hands? I read a digital version of this book thanks to a serialisation via The Pigeonhole app.

Was it a page-turner? Once I got going, the only breaks I took were to wipe away the tears from my eyes after too much laughing!

Did the book meet my expectations? I will give you the same answer I recently gave author Michael J. Ritchie when he asked me: Can you tell me about a book that made you laugh? So here it goes: In at the Deep End by Kate Davies. It is quite certainly the funniest book I’ve ever come across. The crazy thing about it is that – after the first few chapters – I almost chose not to finish it as I thought it was a little too crude for my liking. Not being a fan of giving up, I read what was going to be the decisive chapter and I became that annoying person that sits next to you on the sofa, starts giggling (or snorting with laughter if we’re being honest!) and asks you to stop whatever you’re doing because ‘you just have to listen to this one’!

Three words to describe it. Rude. Hilarious. Bold.

Do I like the cover? I love it! It’s fresh and spicy, like the novel itself.

Have I read any other books by the same author? I believe this is the author’s debut novel and I will drop everything I’m doing to read her next one!
