Rated 3 out of 5 by from Funny Series The series and Georgia Nicholson are very funny. However, I can't see myself reading them again. Perhaps if I was younger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best in the collection I have this one, and so should you. You will love georgia and her unadventurous adventure, her slangs and her strong dislike of all things furry and parental. hear hear

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best one yet! Of all the Louise Rennison books I have read (I've read all of them), I must say this one is the best. It is, like all of the others, absolutely hilarious. And even though they are all great, this one has something more. It may be that Robbie (Georgia's -now ex- boyfriend) is gone, or that Dave the laugh (her friend with benefits) is more in the story, but it is definitively super! I recommend it to anyone who likes silly things, love stories, crazy friends and laughing 'till soda comes out of your nose! It is a fantastic book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for any age I have read all of the books about Georgia and I found this one the funniest by far. Laugh out loud funny!! I am 46 years old and my daughter recommended the first one to me for fun. I dont recommend starting with this one, you have to read them in order, but this one just had me laughing alot. If you want to have a really fun read and put the world on hold, then these are great, and you dont have to be 16 to read them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ...hilarious... Louise Rennison introduces another hilarious teen girl's book to her series. Away Laughing On A Fast Camel is her fifth book. Georgia is an average 16 year old girl living in England. When her beloved boyfriend, Robbie (a.k.a The Sex God) dumps her to snog sheep in New Zealand, Georgia decides to ignore all boys. But when Georgia meets Masimo, the gorgeous new Italian-American lead singer for the local band, The Stiff Dylans, she falls in love again. With the help of her new Horn Advisor, Dave the Laugh, she trys to attract the new Sex God. Rennison writes in the style of a teenage girl's diary. But her writing has limited vocabulary and is not very descriptive. Then again, when do characters like Georgia (a crazy teenage girl) have great speech? This book series is one of a kind. Of all the other teen books (that aren't in this series) that I've read and all the movies I've watched, none have reminded me of Away Laughing On A Fast Camel or Rennison's other books. Though these books don't compare to teen books and movies, they certainly may relate to lives of teenage girls, for example mine. This is because Georgia and her mates are sarcastic, funny, vain, funloving, and they also can be quite immature at times. I must admit, my friends and I aren't filled with (as Georgia says) sophisticosity . Like Georgia and friends, my mates and I play childish pranks on teachers and pretend to be french tourists and hunchbacks. I'd thought our behavior was unique before I read this book, but we're really a lot like Georgia. Away Laughing On A Fast Camel is not a very suitable title for this particular book in the series. A better title would be The Dreamboat Has Landed because this is the book where Georgia meets a new hottie, Masimo. I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it. This is without doubt a great book for teenage girls who love to laugh and would like something fun to read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ...great book for any girl... Georgia Nicolson hates her life. She lives in a madhouse with her crazy family, her bestest pal, Jas, along with Jas's boyfriend, Tom, are obsesed with a wilderness survival coarse and now her boyfriend, Robbie, the Sex God is leaving to New Zealand, kiwi-a-gogo-land . Things get better when Dave-The -laugh, her former boyfriend, has made himself her Official Horn Advisor and unserious boyfriend and when Georgia gets a kitten, from across the road, that is the son of her monster tom cat Angus. The new Kitten is named Gordon, Gordy for short. Now these terrible cats are terrorising the neighborhood together. Robbie's old band, The Stiff Dylans, gets a new lead singer. He is a have Italian, half American and his name is Massimo. George falls head-over-heels for him but he doesn't show very much interest. I loved this book, it really made me laugh. It is a great book for any girl who loves a really funny novel with a dash of romance. My friend Anna Marieis alot like Jas so I know how georgia feels. I am glad to say my life is nothing like Geaorgia Nicolsons

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ...two thumbs up... I was thrown into Georgia Nicolson's hilarious, yet slightly psychotic world about four years ago. You are introduced to: a teenage girl, who, like many is just starting to realize the thrills and spills of adolescence. Her Mutti and Vatti (as she dubbed them) the strange ˜we-aren't-young-but-what's-stopping-us parents. Her kid sister Libby, who has a habit of hitting people with Scuba Diving Barbie, The Ace Gang (Georgia's friends) as well as Robbie (her eventual boyfriend.) In Away Laughing on a Fast Camel, by Louise Rennison, Georgia's just starting to adjust to her newfound life (and love) when it all comes to a screeching halt because of Robbie's decision to run off to Kiwi-a-gogo Land (New Zealand,) to snog sheep. We are then left with a broken hearted Georgia, after lighting a women's scarf on fire, dealing with her Vatti jumping around in green tights, claiming to be Legolas, and then receiving a very disappointing letter from Robbie about rouge boars, she vows to give up on boys for good, saying that a girl can only have her heart broken so many times. That is, until her first encounter with the Stiff Dylans (Robbie's band) replacement lead singer, Masimo. Ohmygiddygodstrousers!! The dreamboat has landed! After a few embarrassing moments involving the object of her affections, Masimo, (including, almost getting caught spying on his band rehearsal and getting her fake eyelashes glued together!) Things work out for the better, thankfully. After giving Georgia a lift to her friend Jas on his scooter, he asks her to go to the movies with him that Friday, though it didn't turn out to be exactly like Georgia was expecting! But, yet again, something comes up to ruin her love life Masimo goes off to Hamburger-a-gogo Land (America!) Thankfully Vatti saves the day, by announcing a family trip to America over half-term. With this uplifting news, Georgia swears to track down Masimo! What I liked most about this latest instalment, was how real, yet totally absurd the characters were! It was also a major plus that I could relate to Georgia and her (many) troubles. The Brit. slangs were also very entertaining! My only complaint would be about the content of the glossary. I had to keep on switching back and forth through volumes to find words that I didn't understand. It would have been nice to have Georgia's commonly words, as well as the new ones from this volume. Away Laughing on a Fast Camel reminded me of the Bridget Jones' Diary books and movie. I would recommend this series to anyone in their teens that liked humorous, diary-style books. This book is definitely my favourite in the series! I give it two thumbs up, and a big thanks to Louis Rennison for creating such unique characters!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ...deeply dissapointed... Away Laughing on a Fast Camel is the first book that I have read out of the series of five. To me, this book wasn't nearly as well written as I had hoped. I expected an easy to follow plot about a much more down to earth girl in which I could relate to. Instead I was left with a feeling of 'huh?' I do admit that my feeling of cluelessness may have been due to never have reading the previous books in this series, but in my opinion, in a good series a reader should be able to pick up any book in the series and be able to figure out exactly what is going on. Not the case here. Events that were most likely thouroughly explained in ealier installments left me clueless. A short prolauge would have been nice and would have changed my opinion on this book greatly. This book could have been written in less then one paragraph easily: Sex God Robbie is gone to Kiwi-a-gogo land. The band member replacing Robbie is Masimo. He is Italian and is very good looking. THE END. Imagine the trees that could have been save, not to mention the money! I don't know what else to say. I was deeply dissapointed. From the cheesy nicnames (I mean Mr. and Mrs. Next Door, come on already) to Georgia's unbelievably odd life, the only good part of this book, if any was the few jokes that I actually got.
