More or less more of the same, with an Angus "incident" thrown in. Still wish there was more Dave the Laugh -- he's by far the best character in the whole series. Who couldn't love him? On to book #10....! ( )

Absolutely freaking hilarious series.
If you've never listened to these on CD, go to your library and do it. NOW! They're such funny books anyway, but the narrator rocks and makes the audio versions ridiculously funny. Like another reviewer said, "If you don't laugh, you have no soul."
And, I should add that Dave the Laugh is perfect in every way and Georgia is insane if she doesn't agree. SO there. ( )

I don't think it's possible for me to not love a Georgia Nicolson book, but I have to say, I am ready for some closure. Team Dave the Laugh! ( )

Watch out, mates! Georgia Nicolson has returned, and she definitely hasn't learned from her past mistakes.

Aside from trying to survive in the woods with all the creatures and (apparently) pigs roaming around, Georgia just got herself in a pickle when Dave the Laugh/Tart ended up kissing her when she fell. What makes it even worse, besides the fact that Dave has a girlfriend, is that Georgia just so happened to have recently become the girlfriend of the Italian Stallion.

It's a good thing that Massimo is miles away, because he would have gone bonkers if he found out what had happened. It's another thing that he hasn't called ever since he left.

Sure, she is stuck with two potential boyfriends, but what else is knew? Georgia must choose between the two before she ends up all by herself.

Aside from her boy troubles, her Mutti and Vati are continuing to fight and it's getting even worse, especially when Vati is changing his appearance into something no one should ever have to lay their eyes on. And before going back to Stalag 14, Georgia must have the best time ever with her mates, hopefully using most of her time not thinking about who she needs to choose between.

Who knew someone like Georgia could get into even more trouble? Wait, we all did!

The previous novels in the series have been absolutely hilarious, and STOP IN THE NAME OF PANTS! is no exception. The laughs keep on coming in this installment, and Georgia is crazier than ever. A series that you could never get tired of, it should come with a caution note on it: Warning, may cause hysterical laughter and odd looks from passerby when read in public! ( )

Time to gird the loins and pucker up.

Blimey O'Reilly's trousers! Three maybe-boyfriends is a lot for any girl to handle—red-bottomed or not. What with Robbie the Sex God back from Kiwi-a-gogo land wanting to "get coffee" and whatsit, Masimo the Luuurve God saying things like "Ciao, Georgia, see you later" (the good see-you-later or the bad see-you-later??), and her mate Dave the Laugh snogging her in a pond, it's enough to make any girl mad.

Good thing she has the ace gang to keep her sane. Ish.

But now that she has tearfully eschewed Robbie the Sex God with a firm hand, Georgia is left with two potential snoggees to choose from, and it's high time she left the cakeshop of love for good. This time with a gorgey Italian cakey. Or a nip-libbling Dave the Tart. But certainly not both. Maybe.
