Reviews

A bouncy, comedy drama. Funny, poignant and bursting with joie de vivre * Daily Mail * A fast, indulgent read that makes you long to take Manhattan * Sunday Times * Hilarious and brilliant * Woman & Home * I adored According to YES. It's so different to anything I've read in forever, so charming, wise, brilliantly written. I loved it all -- Marian Keyes Witty and wise, it'll have you burning the midnight oil. A cracker * Woman's Weekly * Very funny and packs an emotional clout. Brilliant! * Heat * An enlightening and feel-good read offering a fresh look at life and how to embrace it. Funny and enjoyable to the end * We Love This Book * There is lots of fun to be had reading this book. It's impossible not to warm to Rosie, a funny and open-hearted woman who acts as a salve and comfort blanket for this unhappy, inhibited family. There's something quite joyous about the way she unashamedly romps her way through the novel, changing the lives of those around her for the better * Express * Another hilarious novel! * Bella * French can spin a yarn . . . which sets According to YES apart. Think the vicar of Dibley, without the dog collar. YES YES YES indeed * Independent * French acknowledges in all of this that her happiness is not just chance. There has also been a significant change of attitude to her life. It's why she's called her new book According to Yes, and she writes of the main character Rosie: 'She is the person who, a couple of weeks ago, said no to all the even keel, and yes to grabbing life by the throat, yes to jumping off the edge, yes to what the hell's it going to be like? Yes to being afraid. YES, YES, YES, PLEASE!' * The Times * A fantastic slam-dunk page-turner. Funny, enriching . . . page after page I laughed out loud * Mail on Sunday (on 'A Tiny Bit Marvellous') * A hilarious snapsnot of family life in the twenty-first century * Sunday Express (on 'A Tiny Bit Marvellous') * Side-splitting, darkly humorous. It will make you laugh with delight * Heat (on 'Oh Dear Silvia') * A brilliantly observed, very funny novel of family life * Women and Home (on 'A Tiny Bit Marvellous') * Extremely funny * Sunday Times (on 'A Tiny Bit Marvellous') * Hilarious. Chortle-out-loud turns of phrase, razor-sharp observations * Stylist (on 'Oh Dear Silvia') * Makes you laugh on every page * The Times (on 'A Tiny Bit Marvellous') * Dawn tackles the big ones - love, death, grief, childhood, motherhood, parenthood - head on * Guardian (on 'Oh Dear Silvia') * An easy read, but one that doesn't fall short on sustenance - it's not purely light and airy but fun and poignant with some hilariously perceptive observations of family life. French covers the big issues of love, betrayal, grief and heartbreak * We Love This Book *
