Description

It plays with your sympathies, challenges your perceptions and preconceptions and really gets under your skin.

There are those like DI Thripshaw that provide the comedic and toe curling moments with his malapropisms and crassness whilst his colleague DC Debbie Cheese provides the empathy. And the plot, with its twists and turns, has the lack of coherence and credibility of a sit-com also (which sits uneasily with its serious subject matter). Following her wonderful bestsellers A Tiny Bit Marvellous, Oh Dear Silvia and According to Yes, Because Of You is Dawn French's stunning new book, told with her signature humour, warmth and so much love.Ale nie można z tak niemoralnego zdarzenia robić tła dla słodkiej opowieści o córce, która staje się podobna do swojej (nie)matki, o wspaniałej relacji, bez żadnych konsekwencji, bez analizy psychologicznej, w tak płytki i krzywdzący sposób, dla samej rozrywki - no, przepraszam, no nie. I read this book due to its surprise (to me) longlisting for the 2021 Women’s Prize – an explicit sign from the judges (the chair of whom blurbs the front cover of the book) that they were looking for a range of books from literary to storytellers. Anna Lindon-Clarke, the other mother at the hospital, is left a broken woman, she can't forget her daughter, Florence, so desperately wanted, particularly as her husband, the black Tory MP, Julius, a serial philanderer, has proved to be such a utter disappointment. Because Of You is Dawn French's stunning new novel, told with her signature humour, warmth and so much love.

i really liked Minnie, liked her spirit, her passion and the very beautiful and honest relationship she has with Hope. Two highly sensitive and emotive topics, stillbirth and child abduction, just didn't sit right alongside slapstick humour and idiotic characters such as Julien and the male police detective. I’m sorry to see that this one ultimately disappointed for you despite some promising elements, but nevertheless I think your review does it much justice. I'm going to keep this short because I don't feel like writing a proper essay for Goodreads, and the other long option would probably be rambling and vitriolic.The biggest irony here is, I don't think I would've read it at all if it wasn't longlisted for the Women's Prize. As the old millennium turns into the new, two very different women give birth to two very similar daughters.
