5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, yet heartbreaking novel, 21 Feb. 2013
By 
This review is from: Lost and Found (Hardcover)
Lost & Found is about two lost souls - Carol, unhappily married, and Albert, a widower who lives in a grim council estate with only his cat Gloria for company. Carol starts writing letters to the universe about her life and Albert, nearing retirement age at the post office and sorting undeliverable mail, begins to read them.

I loved this novel. It's not a love story, or a romance. Instead it's about friendship, loneliness and family. It made me snort with laughter on several occasions and also left me in tears. The author is really skilled at writing in a bittersweet style that keeps you turning the pages as you want to know how things turn out for both of them.

I really recommend this for anyone who likes a heartfelt novel which is a bit quirky and different. I finished the book with tears streaming down my face and will be eagerly recommending it to all of my friends.
