    1 thought on “The Debt & the Doormat

    1. For a chick lit, this is quite chunky with its almost 500 pages. But I still managed to read it in two days. And that says something about how fun and addicting The Debt & The Doormat is.After Poppy's best friend Jazz gets into money trouble, they decide to switch lives for a while. They make a deal that they'll have to do whatever the other wants them to do, be it having an one-night stand for the first time or saying "yes" to everything for a day.Even though this is pretty much the basic o [...]

    2. I can honestly say that there wasn’t a single moment of The Debt & the Doormat that I did not completely love. Poopy, the most random character I’ve ever come across is hilarious. And the things that happen to her had me literally laugh out loud (I might have even snorted a couple times). The things that fly out of her mouth had me covering my own, because omg – this chick is a riot. She also an amazing friend to Jazz. Jazz is a mess and I absolutely love her. After managing to put her [...]

    3. I asked my book buddies to recommend a funny book because I was sick in bed and needed a lift. This is what they told me to read. What a treasure! And lift my spirits it did. I am an Aussie, so the British humor is just up my alley, it's very dry and extremely funny. I was laughing out loud so many times, I nearly spilt my tea!I just loved Poppy. She is a Bridget Jones type character that unfortunately bad luck follows her everywhere she goes. And it is hilarious. She has a BFF in Jazz who is he [...]

    4. Poppy has her life sorted, by not going outside her nice quiet/careful life she is not going to get hurt again, like Stuart hurt her. Jazz her best friend is in a lot of debt. So on a night establishing how much debt Jazz is in they somehow decided that they will swap lives and have to do everything the other one instructs So Jazz moves into Poppy's lovely flat and Poppy moves into Jazz's house-share with Grace, Izzy and Ryan (the perceived man whore as Poppy christens him)To say Poppy is a clu [...]

    5. Awkward and predictable humourThe blurb gives so much promise and follows the “rules” of a typical chick flick novel. But instead, you are presented with a predictable storyline and humour that just makes you cringe and feel quite awkward. It felt like I was watching a comedy film – you can see where and when the punch line is coming and when it does, you end up feeling sorry for the characters involved, rather than laughing at the predicament.Don’t get me wrong, it’s an easy read to g [...]

    6. I really hate to write reviews like thisThis was the first book that I have read by this author and I picked it up because I wanted a funny, light hearted read. Unfortunately I didn't like it. I hated it. I hated the characters, the plot, I just didn't get it at all. I also didn't like how there was a few occasions that slagged of disabilities. I know it is supposed to be a funny book, but I didn't like that in it.The beginning I thought was going to be good, but then it went too far fetched. On [...]

    7. This book was absolutely brilliant. I was up until 2am reading as I just could not put it down. This has now become my new favourite go-to read, when I need a laugh I'll definitely be re reading The Debt And The Doormat.Poppy is hilarious, she's constantly getting herself, and others, into trouble just by being too nice and not saying no when she should.Jazz is brilliant, stubborn and deep down I think she's lost I'll have to read book 2 to see if I'm right!Ryan swoon! Although he has quite a fe [...]

    8. Loved this book. It was absolutely hilarious. The scrapes Poppy got herself into had me cringing with her and laughing at her at the same time. I adored Ryan and was shouting at the book for him to wise up! Looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Laura has built a host of characters that feel like family friends.

    9. Ahhhh what a lovely read. I laughed out loud in quite a few places at poor Poppy who was rather accident prone and always seemed to end up in tricky situations, bless her. All the characters were great and complimented each other perfectly. This is a super read if you are in the mood for something light that will have you chuckling along the way.

    10. Average story and borrowed humourThe book was funny in places but only because so many of the quotes, quips and one liners were taken from the tv series Friends! Disappointing that the author had to use other sources rather than their creativity or imagination. Also noted a fair few spelling, grammar and punctuation errors. Won't be reading any additional books I'm afraid

    11. I stopped reading when I got to the line that said - 'dry as a nun's vagina'. No thanks. Off-putting, crude and pointless. I was looking for light-hearted froth, not the sort of language used by rugby players.

    12. refuse to carry on reading a book which takes chunks of the TV show friends and adds it to the book. only 30% in and there have been so many quotes word for word, on one page it was a whole scene almost!!!

    13. Plagiarises the sitcom FRIENDS all the way throughout the book, i can't believe it was ever published, the protagonist is very unlikeable too. Terrible book.

    14. Witty and funny The cover on this book is really unique and matches the story perfectly. This is a really funny and witty story, with so many moments that felt like my life, reading sections that had me smiling and nodding. Poppy and Jazz are best mates who have a bit of a life swap in order to help each other out. We follow Poppy and all of her mishaps, she has a natural way of getting into trouble and messing things up, in hilarious fashion. At times I found myself frustrated with her for mess [...]

    15. Jazz has been irresponsible with her finances and no job. Her mother has cut her off.Poppy is a people pleasurer, responsible and a major clutz. They decide to switch places and live each others lives. The hilarious comedy starts. Poppy tries to do the right things but constantly gets herself in trouble. She makes new friends with Jazz's housemates. Poppy has a major crush on her housemate, Ryan, and her ex Stuart is begging her to come back. The author's creative imagination keeps ypu intrigued [...]

    16. Oh my how I loved this book! This was the first book I had read of Laura's and it most definitely won't be the last! Poppy was one of the best characters I have ever read, she had me in fits of laughter several times and was just so relatable! I thought the outcome of this book was quite predictable however mixed with the humour and the great style of writing it was very enjoyable and kept me hooked the whole way through. I would love to have a friend like Jazz in real life as she was so funny a [...]

    17. This is not the kind of book that I usually read. But I have to say I enjoyed it. It did take me a couple of chapters to get into it, but once I was I couldn't put it down.Although Laura Barnard is a new author for me. I will be trying out more book from her in the future.If you haven't read this book you should give it a go, you will not be disappointed.

    18. Easy readEasy enough too get into and not taxing to read. There were a few points in the book where I had the urge to shout out loud for Poppy to stop talking, not a character who would be easy to spend everyday with unless you were her carer! Enjoyable all the same.

    19. StuggledI struggle to finish this one I'm not sure why I've read other books by this author and love them this one just didn't resonate with me unfortunately maybe it's my lineset maybe it's just that I didn't vibe with the book

    20. I really liked this book it isn't my normal type of genre but I liked all the characters and found myself laughing through out the book!

    21. FUN, FUNNY, FUNNIER AND…………EE, FREE, FREE!!!!If you are looking for an amusing adult chick-lit with plenty of comedy, romance and a little drama then look no further than this incredible story by Laura Barnard, ‘The Debt and the Doormat’. This FREE fun chick-lit has the British humour like that of Helen Fielding’s ‘Bridget Jones’ and Miranda Hart’s tv sitcom, self-titled ‘Miranda’. The comedy is silly, dry, sarcastic and some great slapstick clumsiness. The humour is stro [...]

    25. WOW. Quite a synopsis right. Once you’ve got through that lot the book revolves mainly around two best friends that decide to swap lives, each with the plan to change their current situation and get their lives back on track. Simple? Anything but! It focuses on two best friends Poppy and Jazz, two friends from university, two peas in a pod that could not be more different! Poppy is sensible and grounded; Jazz lives a life that doesn’t stick by the rules, fun fuelled and shopping mad! However [...]
