The Booby Trap and other Bits and Boobs Reviews

    This book is for an excellent cause: the proceeds go to breast cancer research, so you should buy it just for that. Although it was full of famous people saying often hilarious things about boobs, I quickly got bored of how often the story was 'my boobs didn't grow until I was 18/my boobs are too small'. As a...well endowed lady, I found this kind of annoying, I would have much rather read people complaining about how much big boobs suck, but instead chapter after chapter were about late-developers. Good in places and a nice short read, but could have done with more variety.

    Great concept for raising money for a worthy cause. However, not as good as I had hoped. Most of the stories are pretty much the same with each author writing a similar story of having no boobs in their early teens & being miserable and then growing big boobs as an adult! Became quite monotonous after a while. It only deserves 1 star but given 2 as money goes to Breast Cancer charities.

    Rating: 4.5 StarsSo, in case you hadn’t already guessed this book is about boobs. Yes, BOOBS. I’ll be honest, I never really though about mine much before I read this. I just stuff them into a bra on a daily basis and get on with life, but when you think about boobs in general you realise they’re kinda amazing. Well, I did anyway. And nothing compares to the feeling of taking your bra off at the end of the day.  Anyway, back to the book! This is a lovely little collection of stories, confessions and poems about boobs, edited by Dawn O’Porter (author of Paper Aeroplanes). The best thing is that money raised from the sale of this book goes towards three breast cancer charities.Compilation books are always hard to review, so I’ve decided to list my favourite pieces:Pillow Talk by Chris O’DowdSome Girls Are Bigger Than Others by Sarra ManningMooby Trap by Patrick NessUplifted by Matt WhymanBeauty and the B(r)easts by Holly BaxterThe Booby Trap by Dawn O’PorterWhile those were my favourite pieces, I did enjoy all the contributions in this book. They were funny, poignant, thoughtful, honest and, most of all, heartfelt. This was a thoroughly enjoyable read and one which I definitely recommend to all women. However, there was a very important message behind it: get to know your boobs because early detection is key when it comes to breast cancer.Thank you to The Five Mile Press/Hot Key Books for providing a copy of the book for review.This review and many more can be found at Maree's Musings.

    I found the stories very hit and miss and it got a little samey by the end of the book. But it's for a fantastic cause (£1 from the sale of every book goes to breast cancer charities) so definitely don't let me put you off!

    I'm going to be 100% honest here, I only bought this because Patrick Ness had a story in it. That's also the reason it's on my favourites shelf, I LOVED NESS'S SHORT STORY! Everything else was more of the same, either talking about how they hated their boobs but then started to love them when they got older, or talking about their mum's boobs, etc. There were some very creative ones though, like the poems or images. Those were the ones I enjoyed the most.

    THIS BOOK WAS RAISING MONEY FOR A GOOD CAUSE WHICH IS ALWAYS A GOO BUT ALTHOUGH IT WAS EASY REad and the chapters easy to read and a pretty wide variety it seemed to follow the same thread of boobs to big and small but yer raises the profile so that cant be bad

    Warning!To all Caitlin Moran fans out there: if you are buying this book and hoping for an article not included in Moranthology, then you'll be disappointed. There is a really funny picture relevant to the book, but I thought you should know so that you know what you're getting into. While I did have some difficulty getting thought the first 50 or so pages of this book, overall, I ended up having a good time and I can safely say it was because of the skill of the authors. They brought out so much to what can feel like a repetitive theme and I especially liked the stories by Patrick Ness, Will Hill, Maude Apatow, Maureen Johnson. The only problem I had with the book was that the first 50 pages or so included essays by famous people which were pretty dull, but afterwards the professional authors (I wish I could find a better way of naming them, but I can't) came into play and all was well.

    The Booby Trap is a hilarious and heart-warming collection of essays and short stories by celebrities about their relationships with boobs – edited by the ever-fabulous Dawn O’Porter, with proceeds going to charity. I picked it up in Poundland of all places; keep an eye out for it cos it’s worth a read.This mini review first appeared on A Cornish Geek on 12 May 2017

    What an amazing book for an amazing cause. I feel like all young girls/women should read this. And men too. But mostly women.
