I have joined Carrie Slager in her challenge to commit to reading and reviewing so many books in this year. She is a Mad Reviewer promising to read and review 104 books! I am a sane reviewer committed to reading and reviewing 12 books over the year. Below is my first.
Review of The Not So Secret Emails of Coco Pinchard by Robert Bryndza
I would give this book 4*. It is entertaining, funny and has some laugh aloud passages in it. I was drawn into Coco’s chaotic life right from the beginning. The book is written in the form of a collection of emails from Coco to her friends, Chris and Marika and her son, Rosencrantz (what a great name for your only child!). Her husband buys Coco an iphone for Christmas, not the jewellery she was hoping for, and her life begins to fall apart; she loses a book deal, and she catches her husband in bed with a younger model. The iphone is put to good use to relate all the subsequent ups and downs in her life, culminating in a successful play at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and meeting the new man in her life.
