RATING: 5 STARS
If you need a good laugh, check out this book. “The Debt and The Doormat” is British author Laura Barnard’s first book. This light-hearted story of two female roommates book will make you laugh. Poppy and Jazz, the two main characters, are polar opposites.In order for Jazz to pay off her debt, she convinces Poppy to swap houses, since Poppy’s rent is cheaper than Jazz’. Poppy, the typical “doormat” goes along with her unconventional scheme. The typical British humor is very dry and funny and all of the characters are well fleshed out. Poppy’s character is well developed, as the reader sees a change in her at the end of the story. Laura Barnard’s writing is excellent – funny and entertaining. I can’t wait to read the rest of her books. I would highly recommend this book for an entertaining read.
