Living the dream isn't always what it seems.
on 31 July 2016
Jane and David live in London with their two children Sam and Ella. Jane wants to leave London and live in the country. She convinces the family and they all move to live Janes dream. However living the dream isn't what it seems.
This book drew me in from the beginning. I think we can all relate with Jane and her dreams to live an ideal family life in the country, she even got me convinced and I was moving with her too.
The book at the beginning after the reader gets the initial idea what is happening became a little slow and repeatative. The story was slow building but then the reader gets to see the cracks appear. In my mind I was expecting a very sad tradgey to happen as the story heavily focused on one character. Something did happen but not in the way I thought it would.
Overall the book was an average family trials and tribulations read. I didn't like Jane much as she came across very selfish and didnt really think of her family welfare in her dream living only her own. This I thought came across really well in the book.
If you like family related books this is an ok read. A little slow but enough to hold a readers interest.
