insider outsider perspective to the family seeing far than even the family itself is capable of But when a reporter with a personal connection to the story comes asking her for the inside scoop will Ali remain loyal to the family who never saw her as anything other than the help Or will she tell her sideWritten with Fiona Neill's delicious humor and addictive style Wh There has been a lot of commentary recently about chick lit and its place in the literary spectrum with What the Nanny Saw Fiona Neill makes a beautiful riposte It has all the components of a chick lit novel over the top characters a slightly contrived situation a romance that you can see coming but places them within a fiercely intelligent story examining the minutiae of scandal finance and the mediaOn the face of it we are reading about Ali Sparrow and her attempts to play the part of a Mary Poppins character in an obscenely rich family Her job is cut out for her considering she barely sees the two parents and they communicate with her via their Blackberries However Fiona Neill sets this against the backdrop of the fall of Lehman Brothers the father of the Skinner family Nick holds a prominent position in the bank and revels shamelessly in the multi million bonuses he receives each yearThis acknowledgement of how current affairs affected those in the maelstrom of the collapsing financial situation is something I have never seen articulated uite so well before There is a sense of utter doom as Nick tries harder and harder to shore up the failing position of Lehmans and his manner of dealing with the crisis is incredibly believableAs well as this Neill examines the way that very rich families invite nannies and the like into their houses at the risk of a loss of privacy we ve seen people like Posh and Becks and Jude Law suffer from nannies telling all Ali s struggle with her conscience as to whether she should mention anything about what she has seen behind closed doors feels again very realisticThe risk that Fiona Neill took with following a rich family is that it becomes very hard to sympathise with either Bryony or Nick I do feel for the children both before and after the financial crash occurs since they could not choose the life they end up leading But hearing about fridges and larders filled with food that spoils because they don t eat it before they buy fresh and the Skinners having a man who comes round just to check the lightbulbs makes them seem incredibly out of touch I guess that is partly the pointAnd I m afraid I found it difficult to appreciate Ali as well I think that this might have been easier had Neill spent time at the start of the novel showcasing Ali s life and exactly why she needed to take the job with the Skinners It would also have helped when Ali kept deferring her return to university as it was I couldn t see precisely why she would choose a very peculiar job pandering to the needs of a very spoilt family over going back to university and forging her own life and careerWith that said I do want a lot of people to read What the Nanny Saw It really is a glittering example of what the very best chick lit can accomplish In fact I have placed a tag of contemporary on this novel as well in my review because at times it doesn t feel like how most people regard chick lit at all It is weighty dark satirical and very clever
