Looking for La La by Ellie Campbell is fabulous, fun chaos that will hold your interest from page one until the surprising end.
Well developed characters will surprise you as they transmogrify during the storyline, so don't be a hater or jump to conclusions so quickly.
The postcard sets off this chase, and the action is non-stop as it mixes humor with seriousness and keep things entertaining enough you will read it in one sitting.
For me there isn't much better than moderately crazy leads, so La La hit my funny bone in a good, good way and I literally laughed out loud.
And intriguing roller-coaster ride that made me search for more of Ellie Campbell's books.
I want more of Pam and Lorraine in my life. Hopefully you will find Looking for La La as hilarious as I found it, and understand how deserving it is of five stars!
Looking for La La is an 'everywoman' story of Cathy whose marriage becomes humorously complicated at the arrival of a postcard in her mail. As she struggles to reveal the anonymous sender, Cathy's life spins faster and faster to a point where everyone is a suspect and things take a strange turn.
Campbell writes with good ole fashioned British humor but that does not mean ever woman won't find humor in her outlook on the dreary side of life as a stay at home mom. I live in Seattle, and laughed out loud many times during this read. When I finished the book, I felt great, (aside from the smashed Kindle)because Looking for La La is funny and who doesn't need to laugh at themselves? If you've ever worried over the drudgery of your life as a Mom, you'll enjoy Cathy's take on her simple struggles through family life in rural London. The mystery is a good one with subplots galore and loads to keep the reader turning pages. The book is beautifully paced, the characters are rich and full, the sentimental side of the story is sweet and this reader can't figure out why it isn't a bestseller in America.
Don't miss having some big laughs over this one, Ladies. As an author and avid reader, I highly recommend Looking for La La!
Our main heroine, Cathy, a stay at home mother who is struggling with her self-confidence and weight, finds herself in the middle of a mystery. Her husband, Declan, is caught up in life at work, and fairly clueless to the goings-on at home (or school, pub, restaurant, art gallery, neighbors, or park).
The banter between the two gets rough at times and feels like life is going down an unescapable path of destruction. But, it isn't just them! Add Raz, Zena, Henrietta, Rupert, Frank, and another half dozen characters, and you have the potential for all and everything to happen.
At the end, when everything does seem completely La-La, Cathy realizes that for once, her penchant for drama, might actually be what makes her the sane one in the group.
I found myself reading until 1/1:30 at night. I finished the book in two evenings because I wanted to find out what Cathy would do next.
She was like so many of us. Go to bed at night with all of this resolve to complete various task the next day. Then wake up to the chaos of the morning. Two young children to prod along getting ready for school. Seeing a husband off to work as he is giving her a list of things he needs her to do that day. Oh yes while he reminds her to look for a job.
As all of this is going on she along with a group of friends are LOOKING FOR LA LA. A mysterious person sending postcards to her husband Declan.
All in all a very good book.
