About the book

“Overall thoughts on the book were that is like the Parson’s Egg, ‘good in parts’ A lot of characters to describe and take into account. It was generally liked but didn’t flow well to start with. It brought out the difference between working practice and academic life”

“Oh what a truly boring book this is. I was waiting for it to get funny, and it didn’t. The continuous ‘highbrow’ ramblings by Robyn were tedious. The smutty bits were probably thrown in to keep the reader’s interest, but I found them to be unnecessary and a turn-off”
