BR: Where’d you go Bernadette?

This book was a delight. I finished the book about a week ago, and usually I like to write things down straight away so that it’s fresh in my memory but this book left an imprint, and it’s very hard to forget how satirical it was.

Again, I don’t like posting spoilers, but this is definitely a book that’s worth reading.

It’s a funny, love story, but the love is between a mother and her daughter.

Bernadette Fox is a hilarious woman, who hates people. Many people can relate to that. Although hate is a strong word, sometimes it’s just easy easier to close yourself off to a society you don’t fit into.

It’s hard to fit in sometimes and Bernadette is the best example to how society rejects you the second it realises you’re different.

Although for others Bernadette was an annoying woman who didn’t try to fit in with the other housewives of the neighbourhood, to her daughter she was a loving a caring mother.

Maria Semple, manages to show how easy it is for people to misinterpret situations and jump to conclusions. Although there were crazy moments in the book, I never felt like there was a tense moment. Semple kept things light and satirical, definitely an enjoyable book that kept you on your toes throughout.

Score: 9/10
