If you’re a regular here at my blog you’ve probably noticed my lack of book reviews for quite a while now. This is because I’ve been writing a novel with most of my reading research which has occupied my time and brain. However, it’s time for me to take care of a backlog of reviews, which you’ll see over the next few days.
This particular one is a short story that I finished in less than an hour. It was a total hoot that had the best descriptions of a hangover I’ve ever read. It practically gave me a headache, LOL. Not only is it an entertaining story of someone who had a few too many and can’t remember what happened, it’s also an outstanding study in the effective use of similes. Thus, if you read my Writer’s Tips, saw the one on similes, and need some help understanding what they are, then by all means read this cute story. Along with general outstanding writing, this author has similes down to a science.
Set in a small town in New Zealand, the pictures of this quaint place the author included in the back were a nice bonus. In fact, you might want to look at them before you read the story to further enhance the imagery. This is a great beach read or when you need a light, humorous dose of one woman’s experience with too much booze and meeting the mystery man of her dreams.
