    Review by www.ireadnovels.wordpress.comI have read The Square by Rosie Millard, so when I was offered to do a blog tour for the follow up book The Brazilian I jumped at the chance. I must say I found The Brazilian more funnier and I enjoyed it much more than The Square.I loved the opening chapter. Jane is having a Brazilian wax in her paper knickers. The beautician asked Jane going on holiday are we? When Jane tell the beautician where she is goi...

    This is such a fun packed book to read that had me cringe and laugh in equal measures. For me Jane is definitely the star of this book but there again SHE would expect no less. Talk about standing on peoples toes to get to the top, Jane would be more likely to knock you down and trample you so you wouldn’t get back up. In her forties she knows time is running out for her to hit the big time, being famous for what is another matter. She simply w...

    THE BRAZILIAN by Rosie Millard is a mad-cap, crazy, holiday adventure crammed full of quirky characters, hilarious drama, and sizzling attraction. The island of Ibiza becomes the focus of this motley crew of characters who are all there for different reasons. There are Jane and Patrick who are there for a family holiday even though they have both strayed, and they have brought a young neighbour to look after their young son George because a famil...

    I hadn't read the first of this 'series' called The Square but it didn't take long to embrace the characters and their crazy ways which made for a very entertaining read! Perfect for a sunny day!It focuses on the family of Jane who seems to be a harrassed mother who seems to detest having to spend anytime with her young son George! She doesn't even seem to like spending much time with her husband either to be fair! So they escape to Ibiza for a b...

    A holiday in Ibiza mixed with a reality TV event is going to give all the participants more than they bargained for.Initially I didn’t think I was going to enjoy The Brazilian as I found the first character presented, Jane, totally vacuous and detestable. However, the more I read, the more I was sucked into what is a clever, witty and acerbic commentary on today’s society. As the tapestry of individuals increased I found all types were repres...

    This was such a fun and quick read! Loved the humor in it and also the "reality show" which is a complete mockery off actual reality shows. You know how each time a contestant has to leave and how they're supposed to do "dangerous" activities or games. It was hilarious and I can't recommend it enough :)

    Like Slowly Driving Past An Auto AccidentAfter reading the first few chapters of this book and getting really quite as much of Jane as I needed I was tempted to quit and look elsewhere. But, there were hints here and there that other characters might be interesting, and that the reality show antics would be unpredictable and more than just shallow slapstick. Plus, for every clichéd cheap shot there were one or two other more knowing, and sly, th...

    Very easy read and perfect for holiday lazing beside the pool. I had read Rosie Millard's The Square and this one is just as enjoyable. Good characterisation and another really likeable 'grown up' 8 year old for me steals the show. Loved the antics of these flawed characters and brilliant humour and irony dominates this very likeable novel. Jane and Patrick go on a 'family' holiday to Ibiza with their adorable son George, Jane enlists the help of...

    This may actually have been more fun than The Square. This time the setting is Ibiza with a handful of characters known from the first book and new ones to get to know. I don't watch reality programmes but I do enjoy books that show a behind the scenes look in at them. The Brazilian hit all the hallmarks. You can't really go wrong with a bunch of people vying to upgrade from C (possibly D-list) "celebrities" on a reality television series. I didn...
