  • I found it interesting and imaginative

    This was my first book/novel/audiobook by Sue Townsend and I enjoyed it quite well. I’ll have to check out her other work when I get a chance between my regular true crime reads and memoirs. This one is about a fifty-year-old mom, Eva Beaver, who, after her twins leave for university decides she needs to take to her bed for a serious think. She wants to really figure out who she is, and what’s next now. As you might imagine, those around her aren’t too thrilled or supportive, but she’s as serious as it gets. The narrator, Caroline Quentin, did a fantastic job on this I felt, which made it all the more enjoyable for me. I’m rather sensitive to voices and they can make or break a story so easily. It’s hard to imagine anyone doing this better now. This book really had divided reviews for some reason. Quite a few people read it and didn’t like it. I guess it hit a hot button in them somehow. Which seems kind of strange, considering the book won some awards. And all of the people who read it and liked/loved it. I always find that interesting and wonder what there was about it that divided people.

    Thanks for your feedback!
