    1. So my mum bought me this book as a joke Christmas present but the joke's on her because I actually really liked it! It really got me thinking about New Zealand culture and its strengths and weaknesses. I think everyone should read it and consider the way that single women are treated and if it reflects our largely progressive culture.

    2. An interesting and unique topic. Reads a bit like an MA thesis rather than a book you'd read for pleasure, but that's Hannah's academic background coming to the fore.
