Coventry Dakin's tale begins with her accidental killing of her neighbour. Forced to flee the law, she deserts her council estate, her boring husband and two demanding children for the anonymity of London's cardboard city.

Originally published in 1988, Rebuilding Coventry is a brilliantly observed satire of Eighties Britain and the hypocrisy of the middle and upper classes.

    " It was a huge dissapointment after reading Adrian Mole's diaries, and not only because I had too great expectations. "

    " Loved this little gem about the feminist awakeining of a timid suburban housewife. Just delightful, as usual with Sue Townsend. "

    " Had a few moments of comedy, but if you like the Adrian Mole diaries DO NOT read this. You'll just be depressed that this is what the author has gotten up to since. "

    " I expected much more from the author of the brilliant Adrian Mole books. This was a fast read, and some of the characters are amusing, but as a whole I found it depressing rather than funny, with an unsatisfying ending. "

    " Sue Townsend is a genius. Funny, dark, quirky - loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 beentsy | 9/1/2012

    " Quick, funny, poignant, but the strangest most rushed to an ending I've ever experienced. "

    " I have enjoyed Sue Townsend's books in the past but this one barely raised a smile. "
