Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me? by Louise Rennison

On the Back of the Book

Oh yes, the hilariosity goes on for one last time. Here it is... maybe probably... pants for the memories!
  • My marvy Luuurve God boyfriend has got the full Humpty Dumpty with me for accidentally twisting with Dave the Laugh.

  • Which is not actually my fault. I cannot be expected to control my body parts, they pop out unexpectedly and so on.

  • For instance my lips do ad-hoc puckering up every time Dave the Laugh comes near them, I don't know why.

  • Ditto jelloid knickers.
Anyway shut up about Dave the Laugh, he has got a GIRLFRIEND.

Not that I care. Or do I?

Oh I don't know, so many boys, so little time...

My Thoughts

As finales go, this wasn't the best I've ever read. For me this is probably the least entertaining of the ten books. I was getting ready to scream at the book for Georgia to do what she should have done from the beginning. There weren't as many laugh out loud moments as the jokes were stale and the book was a bit too long. I did like the end though, I thought it was the perfect ending.

As far as characters go I was bored of Masimo in this one, he was a bit of a plank. His grasp of the English language seemed to lessen with every book, that may be due to him hanging out with Georgia though. Speaking of, Georgia was incredibly dim for the majority of the novel, it annoyed me a bit. Jas' epiphany was pretty awesome. It made her a better character. Rosie was bonkers... as always. Sven was awesome... as always and finally Dave the Laugh was the best of them all.

I'm actually a little sad as I write this. Over the past couple of weeks I felt as though I truly was a part of Georgia's life and now she's left me. I realise I seem to have picked up Georgia's love of being dramatic but for me that's testament to how good a write Louise Rennison is. While this is probably my least favourite of the series I still think this is well written. The main problem for me was the lack of new material.

My Rating

4 stars - If this book had been by any other author it would have got 3.5 but I am slightly biased when it comes to Louise Rennison because she's one of my all time favourite authors. I'm filled with sadnosity as I finish my reviews for the series but I loved every second of my Georgia Nicolson buddy read/read-a-thon.

A Final Note

There's a tiny amount of swearing so not for younger teens. There's also a traumatised budgie... I think you should read the book.
