The Last Laugh Reviews
I feel as if I've been on a roller coaster whilst reading The Last Laugh by Tracy Bloom .. highs and lows, happy and sad, and all at breakneck speed. Never a dull moment!
A none-too-welcome health diagnosis sets Jenny on the path to recapture the best years of her lift and, with the help of her friend Maureen - who does frank and candid like no-one else - she goes about recreating her 25th birthday party and getting back in touch with all the friends she hasn't seen in two decades, whilst also de ...more
This was a really lovely book, covering a difficult couple of subjects.
Jenny's story was sensitively told indeed and I found myself getting quite emotionally involved. For me, this wasn't one of those books that make you really bawl all the way through; I found myself saying things like "you go girl!" and "wow, you are really brave", quite a bit of the time. And I really loved Jenny's friends, even her husband started to grow on me a bit by the end of the book ;)
I mean, HOW exactly do you tackl ...more
This was heart-breaking !! The 'C' word I believe is the most dreaded word in the world right now. Sometimes, it makes life feel so unfair. Books like these teach us to live our lives to the fullest each day, to show our love to our family each day, to not take family for granted each day.. Each day matters.. you never know when you'll lose someone dear to you.. And while the thought can be disheartening and gloomy, there are so many people who regret to not have done more, to not to have said m ...more
After a couple of emotionally heavy books I'll admit I was a bit hesitant at picking up The Last Laugh, knowing from the blurb it was about finding out you are dying the same day you discover your husband's infidelity. It was another blogger that prompted me to start it after a glowingly positive review (so thank you Jenny In Neverland). I am so glad I did. This book is uplifting, life-affirming, and most of all funny! Poignant? Yes. Miserable? Not a chance!
I felt I could relate to Jenny in many ...more
This review was originally posted on Star Crossed Reviews I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour. I loved Tracy's No-one ever has sex series so when I heard that Tracy had a brand new book I had to read it.
Jenny finds out that she is terminally ill the day after her 40th birthday. She decides that instead of telling everyo ...more

Well, this book was certainly not what I expected. I haven't read any of Tracy's books yet however I do have a couple at home as they were recommended by friends who know I like rom coms. So, naturally I expected a comedy of some sort, maybe with a bit of romance and loads of laughs too. The 'chick lit-ish' cover fooled me too. But nope...this is definitely not a comedy, fluffy, or LOL read. Which doesn't mean it's bad, it's just really ca ...more
I love and adore Tracy’s books so this one was always going to be a hit with me! I was genuinely excited to get started and I have to say now I’ve finished it – I blooming loved it!!
The story is great, I loved every page and flew through the book. So funny in places and touching where it needs to be – it really is an excellent piece of work and has been one of my top reads of the year so far!!
Tracy is one of my favourite authors – another brilliant 5 star ...more
