This review is from: The Language of Flowers (Hardcover)
The Language of Flowers is one of those vastly hyped books with all these glowing reviews that makes you wonder if it's really as good as everyone says. The answer is, yes! And yet, the plot is incredibly simple, there isn't a great deal that happens in the book and there are no great surprises, so at the same time I do wonder why this particular book has attracted so much attention.
BUT, I loved it. I think the biggest surprise about it is that somehow it gets under your skin and is positively charming. I loved the characters and I loved the references to the meanings of the different flowers, which I never thought I would be interested in, and I have already been checking out the meanings of the flowers I| have in my house in the glossary at the back. And will be sure to check next time my husband buys me flowers!
It's a lovely book, I had originally thought from the blurb that it might be a little depressing, but it isn't at all, it's lovely, uplifting and enchanting, and definitely recommended.
