don't read this book

For the "book with a "medical condition" in its title" portion of my What's In a Name Challenge, I selected Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination by Helen Fielding. I thought Bridget Jones's Diary, and The Edge of Reason were both vg, so I was expecting this book to rock. Instead...what's the opposite of rock? Pebble? It's chick lit meets spy, only falls far short of Charlie's Angels.

On Wikipedia it says, "In the UK edition, there are comic-strip type pictures of Olivia that relate to her espionage activities." That might actually help.

Maybe after Bridget Jones, you have nowhere to go but down. That's why I shun literary success.
