Believe all the hype! This book was really good!
I wish I had read this earlier, but I have often been disappointed by heavily hyped books on Goodreads. I prefer to wait till the hype has died down.
Eleanor is a very unique creation who makes some very quotable quotes.
The crematorium was a busy place and the parking spaces were needed, I supposed. I’m not sure I’d like to be burned. I think I might like to be fed to zoo animals. It would be both environmentally friendly and a lovely treat for the larger carnivores. Could you request that? I wondered. I made a mental note to write to the WWF in order to find out.
Damaged & lonely, she believes she is coping (with the help of two bottles of vodka on the weekend.) But then two things happen;
* She becomes infatuated with a local musician
*& she meets someone determined to become her friend…
I’d recommend this book for anyone who enjoyed The Rosie Project I just hope that unlike Graeme Simsion, Ms Honeyman resists the urge to write a sequel. You can’t top perfection after all.*
*& ok, the book wasn’t quite perfect – the start was a little slow. But near enough.
