    1. Sue Margolis is the author of nine books, which have than half a million copies in print from Bantam Dell She lives in England, where she s at work on her next novel.Sue worked as a reporter for the BBC, before leaving broadcasting to write her first novel She lives in London with her journalist husband Jonathan They have three grown up children Sue s hobbies include napping, constantly interfering in her children s lives, not going out, eating especially the remains of the previous night s take out curry straight from the fridge, and watching made for TV true life movies in her PJs.

    2. This novel is about a married mother of two who, in the name of journalism (and getting some much-needed loving), has several steamy affairs in the course of a couple of months. It’s hilarious and even trashy at points (that’s a compliment). But it goes beyond the funny and fantastical to get to the bottom of the things that really matter in love and in life.

    3. I debated giving this three stars. I honestly went back and forth while reading this between really liking it and kind of hating it. It might have earned three stars if not for the completely ridiculous notion of the main character falling in "love" with a man she barely knows and spends one night spilling her guts to and then having sex with. To the point that when she returns home and realizes that her husband has found out about her affairs, even though she still loves her husband, her respon [...]

    4. British Chick Lit-definitely for mature audiences as Sue Margolis can become graphic with her sex scenes. Incredibly funny and hard to put down, her books become addictive. At 37, tabloid journalist Anna Shapiro proves to be a real do-it-yourself expert. While researching an article on adultery, she embarks on three spine-tingling extramarital trysts. Annas husband, Dan, is a compulsive hypochondriac, spending his time agonizing over a plethora of self-diagnosed diseases, planning his funeral an [...]

    5. This was the first audio book I'd listened to. I think I enjoyed this book more listening to it than I would of it I had read it. Yes, there's some almost pornographic segments but the story around it was a good one. I would recommendif you're not prude that is.

    6. When I started reading I never thought I would end up giving four stars to this book! But putting morals aside, which can be hard to do, I get it, this book is very funny! I'm smiling as I am writing this review…

    7. 1.5 stars. Very tawdry British smut, beach reading. Shallow characters, kind of funny in parts, but predictable and formulaic. I was expecting more from the blurbs I'd read. Not the worst thing ever, but definitely not very good.

    8. I bought this because I wanted to read something funny and also get a good idea about what ‘chick lit’ is. I read the book description on the back, and it sure seemed funny as hell. A husband who was a hypochrondriac and had no interest in sex, and a wife who was a journalist and had to interview women who had an affair purely for the sex. Sounds promising, right?Nope.The book desciption claims that this story will have you ‘howling with laughter’ (I never even cracked a smile while read [...]

    9. It's been a long time since I've read British chick-lit. I don't know if I've changed or if it's changed. Maybe neither, and this was a different kind of chick-lit, borderline women's erotica. I don't remember Bridget Jones's Diary talking about running a finger over a tingling anus. That's the type of scene I found in Sue Margolis's Neurotica. I also found scenes of slapstick comedy like two women having a fight by smushing pie onto each other. Or a service for married woman to find the perfect [...]

    10. I'm on the fence with this one There are quite a few hilarious laugh-out-loud moments, surprisingly steamy explicit sex scenes and great character portraits, especially of Anna Shapiro's immediate family but Anna herself seemed self-centered and abrasive. I really felt for her hypochondriac husband Dan and her two children she continually sloughs off on her best friend and soon-to-be single mother Brenda. Dissatisfied with her marriage to her self-obsessed husband, Anna as a free-lance journalis [...]

    11. I now remember why I dropped this book originally. While I loved Perfect Blend (also by Margolis) I found this book slow to start and the characters slightly painful to read. I get the whole "I love my spouse" and I can totally understand how Anna would go bonkers with a husband like Dan who is the epitome of a hypochondriac. but accepting the challenge to be a "Clitoris Centered Woman" made me lose all sorts of respect for Anna. Love best friend Brenda and there were some lovely written scenes, [...]

    12. I'm going to keep this short: This was an entertaining read but left me wondering if nowadays we are trying to make adultery a light subject? This book would have scored higher but the ending really threw me. I feel like all of the sudden the author changed her mind and felt bad and flipped things therefore making the story not finish solidly. I would write further and more eloquently but I honestly don't feel the energy with this book.

    13. About a woman who is fed up with her sexless marriageSet in LondonShe’s a reporter for a tabloid magazine and had has to write about adulteryRealizes instead of interviewing women, she will be the one fooling aroundBrings her and her husband back togetherNot all marriages are perfect and they all go through ups and downs

    14. Written in British English. I keep re-reading parts for understanding, but once into it, it's an interesting twist on having an affair. I mean her poor husband is a hypochondriac to the max. I just didn't like it. I'm glad I stayed with it and read it until the end, but this is not a re-read or recommend from me.

    15. I don't honestly remember anything about reading this book other than the premise, that I got it for free in London, and that I read it soon after I got home and was missing all things British. However, I think I would remember if I hated it or thought it was terrible, plus it's still on my bookshelf, so I must have liked it enough.

    16. I read most of this book a while ago. I must say that I liked it from the start. I thought that it was a good light and fun read. It was also hilarious! It did have some raunchy humor, but I enjoyed the read. It didn't hurt that it was British chick lit. I love reading British novels. They are so funny to me. This one was one of the funniest ones that I have ever read.

    17. Neurotic was a fast, fun and wacky read about a british journalist who decides to have some affairs because her hypochondriac husband can’t handle sex any more. It was funny, touchy and just down right wacky but i love british humor and enjoyed it.

    18. Book #61 read in 2007I have to admit that after I read the beginning of this book, I wasn't too sure it was my kind of reading. I stuck with it, however, and I ended up thinking it was great.Sent to a bookcrosser

    19. I was bored by this book by the half-way point. The author's language skills are poor- and not in the normal "British chick lit" kind of way. I wouldn't recommend this book to any of my serious reader friends. In fact, I'm not sure how I came to be in possession of such drivel.

    20. I picked this up because it was right next to _The Dark Mirror_ at my library.) A tabloid reporter decides to do her own research for an article about adultery. It made me laugh out loud in spots, but was a bit too, erm, clinically graphic for my tastes.

    21. This book was pretty fun, and more daring in terms of content than other chick lit books I have read. The author had a great vocabulary. The plot was a little too implausible and cliche in some parts, but all in all it was an enjoyable read.

    22. This book was difficult at first to get into and I found myself irritated between the relationship of the wife and her husbandterally wanted to slap her across the face, but overall it was a quick and easy read.

    23. Sue Margolis writes truly naughty, british chick-lit. I really enjoyed this one (it is the first one I read). It was funny and had great descrptive writing allowing the reader to get fun visualsWarning - not for the prudish at heart - like I said, she's naughty

    24. Good premise, lots of humor, fantastic (if anatomically suspect) dirty bits, but a rushed and improbable ending takes away a star.Hey, look at that - I read this already without remembering - back in July 2004.

    25. Great read ifyou enjoy easy reads, chick lit, witty comments, humor, drama, middle aged women, the woes of marriages, relationships, sex, troubles of communication, fun stories, and a HEA.

    26. This is light reading, somewhat humorous but not really to be taken seriously. Strictly for entertainment. Some good gratuitous sex.
