I realise that I'm only really speaking in proverbial phrases, but let that not keep you from purchasing this book.
It's a novel about a woman who is not afraid to break free and who provides an insight to the other characters to feel inclined to do something different, giving them opportunities. I have to say I loved how this book was so unique, there was no real cliché- it was better, more realistic and very unpredictable. At one point, I felt: who knows, maybe Margo and Jacques are related?
The reason I gave it four stars was because I felt it lacked in the background, we were immediately made to hate Alan. I wish we were provided with a more detailed back story, for example a certain traumatic event which kept playing in her mind. I would have liked for us to have seen his exact character, to enable us to judge for ourselves.
The setting and the customs of France were really interesting to me since I've never been there. The characters were well-drawn and all of them, including Margo, had their flaws as well as their good points.
Although there were no real surprises in the plot, the solid writing and the characters drew me in and I stayed up late finishing the book, which came to a satisfying conclusion. Ms. O'Leary is a talented writer, and I look forward to reading more of her books.
When Margo married Alan, she truly loved him. Yet at some point over the course of the last ten years, he started to change. No longer the kind and caring man she married, Alan has become a verbally abusive jerk.. after a particulary bad argument in the car one day, the two stop for gas, and Margo walks away. With little more than the clothes on her back, she decides to risk it, and find more purpose in her life.
Margo finds herself a job, some new friends, and a newfound love for life. As Margo begins to feel her freedom, she also begins to realize how truly unhappy she had been in her marriage.
"Finding Margo" is a story about courage and strength; about listening to your inner heart rather than your brain sometimes. It's about not giving up and not being afraid to take risks. And its definitely chick lit I was entertained, thought a few times I did find my mind wandering. The story was somewhat predictable, though there were a few pieces to the puzzle I didn't put together on my own which is always a good thing. I like surprises...
In my view, the author has worked harder in this book to create not only an intriquing plot, but characters who are much more rounded and appealing. The writing is better - more professional - and so is the editing. The French countryside is beautifully rendered, the scenes in Paris are evocative and atmospheric. The themes are slightly more serious than in the other books of hers I have read, a plus, and this helps the book to stand a little higher than the usual chick-lit offerings I see on Kindle. A five star read for me.
