Where’d You go Bernadette by Maria Semple

Where'd You go Bernadette

I have to begin this by saying that I loved Where'd You Go, Bernadette: A Novel  It was totally silly and totally what I was in the mood for at the time. The story of what happened to Bernadette is told through small snippets - emails, conversations, letters…bits of this and that. There is so much in this book, I can't even do it justice. I think that comedy is hard to pull of in a book, but this one does it wonderfully. The comedic timing is just right. It was a breeze to read, I couldn't put it down. Thoroughly enjoyable

A good comedy sounds perfect to me right now.

Thor would be proud of your Thorsday Book reviews. This sounds like a fun book; sometimes silly is just the right thing to counter the realities of the world.

You always have great recommendations. Adding this one to my list, as I think I'll need something funny once I finish The Passage.
