Summer reading

It’s been a bumper summer of good reads for me, so I’ve done a quick round up of the ones that stood out. First up:

I needed an easy read to ease myself into more hardcore books on holiday and this one did the job nicely. However, it also pulled me up short on several occasions , with a story line which did well to keep the twists and turns coming, and writing which although sometimes was a little trite, by the end had me nodding in admiration. I found it hard not to actively dislike the main character, which was (I think) the point, which is a risky strategy, but in the end it did pay off. It challenged perceptions of parenthood, marriage and the complexity of dealing with grief whilst getting to grips with the real personality of the person you love. A recommended light and entertaining read.
