    2. Kerry Swaine has come to Australia from Edinburgh to find her mother. She has drifted through life with no real plans and she has always felt the odd one out and was not happy to be adopted. At 18 she started looking for her mother and now she is in Australia not sure which way to go to start he looking but things fall into place and she finds her, but the meeting is not quite what she hoped for.In Sydney she meets a group of people when she starts selling artwork door to door.

    3. A really interesting read. Having seen Cameron's stand-up routine I was expecting similar but it is something of a departure from that. The book definitely gains momentum as the plot unravels, so rush the opening chapters if you can - for me the set-up was far too indulgent. Although most of the characters appear simply drawn I feel that is a deliberate and interesting choice, highlighting the fleeting nature of these people in the protagonists life and her somewhat uncaring attitude towards mos [...]

    4. This book is about a British girl who goes to Australia to find her birth mother. It takes a while for the reason she came to Oz to finally be revealed. The girl is kind of a mess and gets into some group of people selling fake art door to door to earn some money, while she buys her time. She meets crazy people and drinks a lot. She does find her mother in the end and it’s a really interesting meeting, nothing like I have ever read before. The mother doesn’t want to meet the Girl, but she do [...]

    5. Pity we can't give half stars. I really struggled to see the point of this book - sure she was on a mission, but that didnt give her the right to carry on the way she did. And it portrayed Aussies as well dumb and gullible, which we arent. I liked how she finally found the connection at the end but the ending was a bit ambigous - does she go to the NT, does she go back to scotland? Does she keep in touch with her family? It didn't really do anything for me

    6. Review Snippet: "As those of you who read my blog know, I am not a fan of "books about nothing", and this books fits nicely into that category.If you are a fan of books depicting binge drinking, recreational drugs, casual sex, aimless wanderers and not much else, this title may fulfil your desires. For me, I found this book lacking.Full Review: bookywooks

    7. I really enjoyed this book, I've never liked Rhona Cameron much as a comedienne and didn't expect her books to 'redeem' her, if you will, but I have thoroughly enjoyed both her books. 'The Naked Drinking Club' is repetitive, but I find this reinforces the protagonist, Kerry's struggle to break the mould of her life and find what she's really looking for.

    8. I liked this book ; mainly I guess as it was funny, it was different.I liked the way the tale was woven through a door to door art sale scam,- you get the feeling the author probably partook in such an occupation!

    9. It was readable and kind of funny in places but nowhere near as good as 1979. It was pretty well written but became kind of repetitive and I was glad to finish it and move on.
