The first half of this very funny take on a nightmare scenario moms crashing their thirtysomething sons lives for a week is four star worthy There s a dry, predictable patch around the 2 3 mark, but the zippy conclusion nearly makes up for it Good light summertime fare Broadly British, like those few bits of the movie Love Actually that were actually good and that you secretly liked. Pretty entertaining book about three best friends who, when forgotten by their sons on Mother s Day, each make an unannounced stay for one week with their son, in order to find out what their life away from home has become. I really liked Are you experienced and I still think Sutcliffe can write witty and intelligent novels But this one is disappointing All people involved in this story three mothers and three sons, and some younger women seem to be reduced to one problem character Though they are not stupid they all behave as if they were driven by only this feature with the effect that you don t see REAL persons but only examples for certain patterns One son is gay he seems to be only gay, nothingI really liked Are you experienced and I still think Sutcliffe can write witty and intelligent novels But this one is disappointing All people involved in this story three mothers and three sons, and some younger women seem to be reduced to one problem character Though they are not stupid they all behave as if they were driven by only this feature with the effect that you don t see REAL persons but only examples for certain patterns One son is gay he seems to be only gay, nothing, one is successful but in the wrong branch , and one of them can t forget his ex and resists to think about anything else The mothers are no better, but worse They seem to be ONLY mothers with no other relationships, other interests or other duties They behave like mothers you know from Enyd Blyton stories, meaning one dimensional, motherly and only focussed on their children Of course it s risky for a 40 years old author to write from his mother s p.o.v., but Sutcliffe fails spectacularly It seems a little bit self centered to believe that the generation before you have no other problems than to pry on their children and to try to change their lives Last and least The mothers behave dumb, the sons stupid, but still worse are the women they meet One is perfect but difficult , and the other one is neurotic but in a comfortingly exaggerated way, so you don t have to worry about her So in the end everyone gets what s he deserves, but the reader is not satisfied
