Cod for tea?’ ‘Fish is food for the brain,’ Nurse Williams chanted briskly. I don’t have cod for tea. Just as it had been no good when she had stood on the large stone steps at school calling after her parents; just as when, later, she had pleaded with Daniel at the quayside not to sail for Germany. If they wanted to go, there was nothing, nothing at all, she could do to stop them. Sometime later, she was not sure how much – she got confused over time – there was a yank at the back of the wheelchair and she felt herself being moved.

Although Guppies for Tea could never be described as gripping, the author quietly steers each character beyond their mild mannered nature into cathartic territory. The story opens with thirty-something Amelia beginning to realise that her maternal grandmother, who gave her the sane upbringing her mother could not, might not be around forever. Simultaneously she experiences the collapse of her two year relationship with Gerald. Both granddaughter and grandmother find themselves forced to move out of their homes and face the relentless forward march of time.

The text provided many nuggets of wisdom regarding loss, aging and the ticking of one's biological clock without getting too heavy. The characters were multifaceted and believeable when facing situations not often adressed in contemporary literature (when, for instance, gran's bladder control problem puts a damper on her pool activities). Worth rereading.
I found this to be a very good book to read and hard to put down. It was funny and sad at the same time. The characters are so real - that in the end when I closed the book - it was hard to get back to the "real world". I am going to check out for more books by Marika Cobbold - for someone whose mother tongue is not English - she has written a very good book (and this was her first one).
This is an extremly boring and dumb book.

The characters are dull and there is no chance relating to them since their situation is one of those sad things that people shouldn't spend their time writing about.

People say its funny. I found one joke, which was not even funny.

My advise to you is not to read it. If you are able to finish it you will find yourself with a bad feeling in your stomache and a bad temper.

And oh, by the way. The language she uses is at the same level as mine. Crappy.
Very much enjoyed this
