“ Paperback: 272 pages / Publisher: Hodder Children's Books / Published: 16 July 2009 / Language: English „
When I started reading this book I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy it. I had never read any of the Diary of a Chav books but felt that Diary of a Snob sounded much more interesting.
The book is about Poppet Montague-Jones and the struggles she has being a teenager and with her family. Poppet and her friends, Striker and Vixen are often getting into mischief at school but they seem to get away with it. As the title suggests, she and her family are rich (and snobby), and Poppet spends her life wearing designer clothes and attending elite events. Poppet is 87th in line to the throne and will soon receive a massive trust fund.
The book is written in diary form which I dont tend to enjoy reading but I found this book wouldnt be the same if it wasn't written in this way. The language of the book is exactly how you would expect a teenager to speak and I found it took a little getting used to as I have never read a book written in this way before. Nevertheless, this style of writing made the book very funny to read.
I found that reading about a rich teenager from London was interesting but the story didn't have much of a storyline.
The way this book was written made the book unique and not like any others but I would advise this is read by older teenagers due to the language.
