Meet Sherry Cracker: loner, obsessive note-taker and lover of tartan trousers. She works for thrifty, straight-talking Mr. Chin who runs a business buying used gold from dentists. One Friday afternoon, Mr. Chin informs Sherry that she's abnormal. He then uncharacteristically gives her GBP100 and a weekend in which to 'crack the normality nut'.

I loved this book and agree with the comments written earlier; I will be reading this book again and recommending it to others. Yes it is mostly hilarious and is also multi layered, tender, gracious and sad. Read full review

This is certainly a different take on the meaning of life, or the meaning of people's actions. Asking the plainly obvious, observing the mundane and the mysterious, Sherry Cracker puzzles her way through a swift plot with the eyes of an innocent abroad. Not many books make me laugh out loud, but the comedic moments are genuinely unexpected and that brings a pleasure all of its own. I definitely recommend it.
