“一位名叫老头的智者曾经说过,千里之行始于一步。那么,为什么我觉得自己已经赤着脚走了数千英里,流血了,却发现自己没有’根本不动吗?我的一小步只把我带到了死胡同的工作和灾难性的关系。”


乔西’s Upturned World is a novel which centres of the life 乔西 – a woman in her late twenties who has been engaged four times, but has once again found herself dumped before the wedding. As someone who has dreamed of the perfect wedding since she was a child, 乔西 is determined to find the right person to marry. Starting afresh, and with the help of her friends Babs and Dame (and new friend Pru), 乔西 just wants to find her happily-ever-after and once she receives a mysterious letter, she finds herself on a path which may just grant her one after all…

这是一本容易阅读和喜欢的书-人物很可爱,剧情很有趣,以至于(我不’并非以批判的方式表示)这本书非常“bubblegum”. I loved how easy it was and, despite a few difficult and tragic moments, overall, the whole story felt wholesome. I especially loved 乔西’与Pro的关系,我觉得这本书真的很实用!

我没有的风格选择’t 喜欢 much was when the narrative changed perspective; this only happened a handful of times, and was usually only for a paragraph, right at the end of a chapter, but in all of the occasions it happened, I just found it unnecessary, especially the plot of 乔西’妈妈我确实认为Popat可以将其完全排除在书本之外,’根本没有改变小说。

I 喜欢d how much of a realistic approach this novel took to 浪漫; using 乔西, Popat was able to convey that while everyone may want a fairytale ending, it isn’直达目的地!一世’我肯定在叙事看起来像玫瑰色之前阅读过浪漫史,它具有人们不切​​实际的理想’s love lives – so I’我很高兴这不是’t one of them!

总而言之,我没有’t不喜欢结局,但它可能难以预测。剧情中肯定有一些元素,我无法预测,以至于我认为这封信后的情节是极其出乎意料的,但我希望结局也是其中之一。

如果您喜欢布里奇·琼斯(Bridget Jones)风格的浪漫小说,这本书绝对是必不可少的,它既有趣又讨人喜欢,但情节逼真而亲切。我赞扬作者’不让情节变得沉重的能力,以及她的角色’拥有强大的相关性和吸引力,我期待阅读更多Popat’未来的工作。

感谢作者Priya Popat向我发送这本书的副本,以换取诚实的评论。
