Somehow these socks flew off my needles, and I can say the same for what I was reading this past week, too. Gail and I thought it would be fun to read-along with the same novel so we
I didn't quite know what to expect when Gail and I decided to read this book together, but I had a completely open mind and dove right in. I haven't read too many epistolary novels in the past -- only two come to mind which are The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and Super Sad Love Story -- but I love the method and find it utterly fascinating that a writer can tell a story with so many different voices. This novel was clever, poignant, and down-right funny! Bernadette is a woman after my own heart. To the outside world, she's looney and anti-social. Deep inside, she's an artist with a heart of gold. Her daughter Bee is a fantastic young female character full of genius and verve. I'm typically a slow reader, but I plowed through this gem in three days.
And seriously, don't you just love the book cover?
