This Thirtysomething Life - Jon Rance
what i thought:
Firstly, this book should come with a warning:
Do NOT start reading this if you have other things that you really should be getting done. I say this cos, from the first to the last page, I was totally gripped by this book. It is written in the form of a diary so it has short, punchy “chapters”. Combine this with a storyline that keeps your attention the entire time and there is a great temptation to think “I’ll just read one more before I put it down” and then you realise, when you finish the book, that you have read solidly for over 5 hours, lost the entire evening, and stayed up way later than your usual bedtime.
It’s a great book, wonderfully written and staring some really great characters. It takes the reader through a whole host of emotions and has some really great lines. I am not usually one for highlighting but some of the lines in this were just too good not to.
I hear the author has a second book coming out soon. I for one will be keeping my eye out for that!
