I thought the characters were very well-written and I particularly enjoyed the conversational exchanges, which really brought the characters to life for me.
If you're after a quirky plot and a good giggle this is the book for you. I loved it and can't wait to read more from this great writer!
I particularly liked the stumbling progress of the main character, Ros. If there's a wrong end to any particular stick, you can be sure that Ros grabs it and hangs onto it with grim determination. Sometimes this can be frustrating for a reader, while whiny and self-pitying characters can be, well, whiny and self-pitying. However, in Ros, Jo Platt has created a realistic character with whom we can all identify and sympathise, hoping that we don't make those mistakes, while secretly fearing that we do.
Anxiously awaiting the second novel!
All of which leads me nicely onto "Reading Upside Down", a debut novel, written and self-published by Bristol author Jo Platt, and one which is firmly planted on the wheat side of the harvesting analogy. It is a beautifully crafted look at those emotions, occasions and events that most readers will have some experience of, relating to love, rejection and social embarrassment. It is in essence a simple book about love - looking for it, finding it, losing it, expressing it and repressing it (and not necessarily in that order) and the humour and awkwardness that goes with the whole romantic thing.
Fluffy? Well ... sort of, but Jo has created such a splendid cast of characters, whose actions and conversations are so true to life, so believable, that as well as a thoroughly enjoyable and very funny read, "Reading Upside Down" grabs you in an emotional way as well.Read more ›
Highly recommend it
A quiet night in, or something to read on your holidays, you won't go far wrong.
The author has a very good sense of humour and writing style, I found myself laughing out loud whilst reading. Definitely 5 stars for me, and looking forward to the next one!
