The Last Laugh Reviews
The Last Laugh by Tracy Bloom is the second book I’ve picked up by this author and she’s quickly becoming known to me as one to expect the laughs to come quickly. This book however has a rather sad side to the plot but the main character does her best to not become sad and still throws those one liners and off the wall actions at the user to keep us smiling.
The story introduces us to Jenny who is a mom to a couple of teenagers and a wife of about twenty years now. It was time for Jenny to head t ...more
Although a new author to me, if Tracy Bloom’s other books are like The Last Laugh she definitely has a new fan.
Yes, on the surface it doesn’t seem like a novel about dying and infidelity would be especially enjoyable but it really is – plus it’s about so much more than that.
Tracy writes with a sort of gallows humour that I really like but also with so much emotion, I felt instantly connected to the main character, Jenny, like I was part of her life.
It helped also that there i ...more

Jenny had just been given the devastating news that she had terminal cancer, and most likely looking at 18 months to 2 years left to live. Having been to the hospital appointment on her own, she decided she needed to talk to her husband and went to visit him at work, where he was working late. Unfortunately, it wasn’t paperwork he was dealing with, although there was a filing cabinet involved, but some leggy blonde woman.
After leaving the offic ...more
Don't let my rating fool you, this was an enjoyable story of a woman figuring out how to live now she knows when she's going to die.
Jenny finds out her husband is cheating on her exactly when she's ready to tell him she has terminal cancer. Also, her relationship with her daughter isn't the best and her son depends on her since his father is never there for him. How can she let them go just like that? So she decides to postpone informing everyone and to fully live, like she did back when she met ...more
I love and adore Tracy’s books so this one was always going to be a hit with me! I was genuinely excited to get started and I have to say now I’ve finished it – I blooming loved it!!
The story is great, I loved every page and flew through the book. So funny in places and touching where it needs to be – it really is an excellent piece of work and has been one of my top reads of the year so far!!
Tracy is one of my favourite authors – another brilliant 5 star ...more
**ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review**
Tracy Bloom’s The Last Laugh was such an eminently inspirational novel that superimposes two devastatingly life changing scenarios as they redirect the course of Jenny’s life forever.
Jenny, a mid forties mom of two, has been told she only has a short time to live, and then discovers her husband is cheating on her, all on the same day. And you thought you were having a rough one. Think again. If I had to imagine two of the worst bits ...more
Actual rating 3.5/5.

Well, this book was certainly not what I expected. I haven't read any of Tracy's books yet however I do have a couple at home as they were recommended by friends who know I like rom coms. So, naturally I expected a comedy of some sort, maybe with a bit of romance and loads of laughs too. The 'chick lit-ish' cover fooled me too. But nope...this is definitely not a comedy, fluffy, or LOL read. Which doesn't mean it's bad, it's just really ca ...more
Tracy Bloom’s The Last Laugh is a moving, funny and absolutely memorable novel which will stay with you long after you finish reading.
Jenny finds out that she has terminal cancer on the same day that she discovers her inattentive husband, Mark, is cheating on her. She’s also got a lot on her plate: an overbearing mother, superficial friendships, and a bratty daughter and an anxiety-riddled son. She keeps her diagnosis and her knowledge of her husband’s infidelity a secret. Jenny decides to reliv ...more
