Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Year of the Jubilee (Kindle Edition)
I read this one before the prequel “The Binary Year” and was so impressed I immediately bought the earlier book to fill in the gaps. It is written in quite an individualistic style reminiscent of Adrian Mole but female and all-grown up. Anna beautifully captures the plight of this middle aged woman as she struggles to come to terms with all the changes in her life. In fact, it’s so well captured I wondered often whether it was more autobiographical than fictional.
As a man, there were many new and curious insights to be had, some that perhaps I shouldn’t have been privy too about women, haha. This book had me laughing from start to finish and, given the propensity for a book about the main characters heavy realisations about her own life, that was incredibly impressive.
