Yes summer officially ended two weeks ago, but is it too late to move “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” to the top of my Beach Reads 2012 list?
I absolutely loved this book, which was recommended to me by a friend who reads everything. So did the The New York Times:
“The tightly constructed “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” is written in many formats — e-mails, letters, F.B.I. documents, correspondence with a psychiatrist and even an emergency-room bill for a run-in between Bernadette and Audrey. Yet these pieces are strung together so wittily that Ms. Semple’s storytelling is always front and center, in sharp focus. You could stop and pay attention to how apt each new format is, how rarely she repeats herself and how imaginatively she unveils every bit of information. But you would have to stop laughing first.”
What should I read next?
