Surely it needs to be re-written in txtspk, otherwise the younger generation aren't going to understand it?

I don't know why anybody would pay $60 for that. I wouldnt even pay $6. I borrowed it from a friend and read it, I did not care too much for it.

I didn't think much of it either, too much like a Mills & Boon. Peter's book is way better.


That's a very good description for it. If I had to read the phrase "and then we made love" one more time I was going to vomit. Too much information!!!

I do agree with some of the ppl in here..He did make out mary to be a bitch..! (But there are 2 sides to the story!) But oviously she hasnt got nothing to prove cos she aint wrote a book or anything ( good for her! ) I have 2 hardback copies of it..One my friend Gave me and i brought on off ebay...U could get it off there...dont go near amazon...

I got it for about $4, signed at the convention a few years back....I'd say it was worth $4 - many would disagree!

Ummm, how about inherit $20,000,000 and Garden Lodge, which she promptly booted Jim out of? He'd been living there with Freddie for 6 years. Jim got $100,000 and a house in Ireland. I'd be a tad bitter too. But, like someone else said, there's always 2 sides to the story - there had to be a reason Freddie left everything to his first "wife" instead of his second.


Thank you, God bless you, sweet dreams you lot of tarts, Good-bye!
