Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Distorted Days by Louise Worthington

 

If she could speak to them, she would say they have exploded her heart, released firecrackers through her senses. She wishes she could call the police, the ambulance, the fire brigade, to arrest and anaesthetise and waterboard the bastards.   

So what happens when your husband runs off with your best friend? When you discover the dead body of an old man halfway through your delivery round? When your house is burgled and you get beaten up? Doris, Andy and Colleen are about to find out. They’re also about to discover that you can find friendship and support in the oddest of places…

Heart-rending, humorous and above all authentic, Distorted Days is an exquisitely written account of the ways in which life can knock you off our feet – and how you can pick yourself up again. If you’ve experienced the fickleness of fortune, this is a book that you’ll never forget.

 

My Review:

This is a very different look at real life, exploring events, choices, betrayal, friendship and relationships. It is a whirlwind dashing through the lives, pausing to give a quick glimpse before speeding onwards again.It involves adultery, miscarriage, job changes, death, robbery and assault for different characters. It is stories of people who have been knocked down by events in their lives and how they pick themselves up, brush themselves down and start all over again. It is about resilience, friendship, fresh starts and coping with everything that life throws at you in this distorted look at the lives of these characters.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this surprising book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
