Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison

Book Review - 

Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison is the first book in the series Confessions of Georgia Nicolson. The series has ten books, and I'm done with it by reading the first one. Unfortunately, the author died in 2016; may her soul rest in peace. She was bestowed as Queen of Teens in 2008 because her series is for teenagers and young adults. 

Now let's talk about this book - You'll Laugh Your Knickers Off is the subtitle, and I picked this book because of that. But sadly, there were only a few moments where I laughed, that too, not loud. 

The protagonist Georgia Nicolson is a fourteen-year-old living with her parents and a younger sister. Of course, now, she is a teenager, and we all agree that they are dramatic; hormonal changes and all. But this one is the shittest teenage character I ever came across. 

All she did was whine over her looks and boys in the whole book. She is jealous of her friends, hates her parents, and wishes for their affair and death. She also has a cat that is wild and out of control. Unfortunately, the author only put Angus in the story to make the book long. Like her, Georgia's friends and love interests are shallow and fatally uninteresting. 

The story is narrated by Georgia's POV, and all the time, I think, what the hell is her problem or how absurd the characters are behaving. Being an English author, Louise Rennison used many slang words that made me search for them on Google while reading. This book is considered an extraordinary funny bestseller, but it is utter nonsense and a waste of time and money.
