Audiobook Review: On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God


Be sure to check out the Georgia Nicolson Reading Challenge!

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Genre: Contemporary

Release Date: 4/10/2001

About the Book: Georgia and the Sex God (aka Robbie) are finally dating, although Georgia fears that joining her Vati (father) in Kiwi-a-go-go land (New Zealand) will make her loose Robbie. But when Robbie decides Georgia is too young, Georgia determines to use Dave the Laugh to make Robbie jealous. Will Georgia end up winning the SG back or will she fall for Dave the Laugh?

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Georgia is back and she's as fabulous as ever. I can't read (0r listen) to one of these books without cracking up. Georgia and her friends are so goofy and self-centered (without realizing they're self-centered and without being annoying) that it makes me laugh.

I adored Dave the Laugh-I think he's a great addition and as great as the SG is I think I like Dave the Laugh better. Even though this one centers around Georgia and trying to win Robbie back, the parts I found the most hilarious were the situations with her parents-her father is away and her mother is flirting with the cute doctor.

I really like listening to these books on audio because I enjoy hearing the British narrator-Stina Neilson narrates the first four audiobooks and I think she has the perfect Georgia voice. Plus, it's fun to hear all the British slang. There is a glossary in the back of the books, but I'm able to understand the books without using the glosssary which you don't get until the end of the CDs, so it's not necessary to have while reading.

I really wish the Georgia movie would get released in the U.S. And even though it's not Dave the Laugh that comes up with the nunga-nunga thing, I still the movie does a good job portraying him.

  1. These books are so very funny and I saw this movie on the plane back from England and couldn't work out why they won't release it here in the US

  2. I have to take a look at this book series, even if I'm not a teen anymore :)

    Poor sweet David the Laugh at the end of that scene.
