Reviews

Think ‘Perfect Match’, ‘Bachelorette’, ‘Temptation Island’, ‘Big Brother’ and ‘Survivor’ all rolled into one and you’ve got the reality TV competition from hell. Marry the winners, send them off to the tropical island of Réunion and let the chaos begin! Shelaine Green, a British high school music teacher who feels she has ‘lost her mojo’ and turned into ‘human musak’, is kindly entered into the game show by her students who want to ‘kick-start’ her life again. Shelly’s mother used to say that ‘misogynist is just Greek for “man”’ but according to the computer, the hunky American, Kit Kinkade, is Shelly’s perfect match. Or is he? Can a Venutian and a Martian with so much excess baggage call a truce in the battle of the sexes, let alone fall for each other and live happily ever after? The differences between the sexes prefacing each chapter form an impressive, hilarious catalogue which I’m sure will ring true with many women—as will much of the book—but it’s not for prudes. If you know Lette’s work and like her range of humour, which includes dry Aussie irony and classic one-liners from the lewd to the crude, you will find this book a laugh. I imagine it will be read on lots of beaches over the coming summer holidays. Paula Grunseit is library manager at SBS Radio, Sydney. C. 2003 Thorpe-Bowker and contributors
