Easy, entertaining & much more than 'chick lit',
This review is from: What Alice Forgot (Paperback)
I REALLY enjoyed this book. I'm not a chick lit sort of girl and was a bit concerned this would be just pages of text and a half hearted attemt at a 'story'. It's not. From start to finish, this book entertains. Essentially there's two characters-sisters whose lives we follow through some difficult times. The author tackles painful and difficult issues without the reader feeling that it is too bleak to continue to read. The characters are entirely believable and very 'human'. I found myself asking myself how I'd feel, how I'd react as Alice finds out that she's become a short temperered, strict parent and generally unkind person.
So much better than I'd expected. The author writes beautiful prose and captures human emotions as well as I've ever read.Definately a book that will do the rounds of family and friends!
