This is review is for a book I read a while ago but it is so good that I wanted to talk about it. Plus the movie rights have been acquired and I really hope this comes to the big screen. I love it that much. If you haven’t read this book already I highly suggest you pick it up. It is great for a summer read on the beach, lounging in a hammock, or just sitting in you back yard. You will love this.
Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple
Bernadette is different. She is an architectural genius; an unapproachable private-school parent; a stubborn wife; but above all, a loving mother to 15-year-old daughter Bee. Bernadette causes draws attention, and causes chaos where ever she goes, and this is a no-no in her upper class Seattle area. Her life and her choices have made her an extreme agoraphobic and relies on a virtual assistant for even the most basic of tasks. But when her daughter Bee claims her reward of a trip to Antarctica for acing her report card, that really sends Bernadette spinning. One day, she goes missing and Bee complies emails, letters, notes, official documents the works, in order to try and find her mother. The roles of mother and daughter reverse in this can’t put down read.
This book is utterly hysterical. I was literally laughing out loud. My husband looked at me with wide eyes wondering what on earth I was reading. I could not put this down. I was reading it every chance I got and I was sad when it came to and end. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for good laugh.
