After a bunch of serious reading, I'm giving my poor brain a break and reading something
completely stupid: Apocalipstick.
The characters remind me of some of the folks from the series Ab-Fab. The protagonist isn't
a stand-in for either
Edina or Patsy but the people she works for do remind me of a hybrid of Edina and Patsy.
Apocalipstick isn't a book I would have picked by myself to read but it was recommended
to me by a man who goes to the BookCrossing meetings on a regular basis. Ian has also read
the book although it wasn't goofy enough for his tastes: he prefers the parody books like
the Georgia Nicholson series by Louise Rennison. So far though, I'm enjoying Apocalipstick
for its disfunctional characters and artificially high stress work environment. It's rather
funny to have a woman who thinks most beauty aids are crap working for a beauty magazine.
