Where'd You Go, Bernadette is not the sort of book I would normally read – to be honest the cover doesn't do anything for me. But I read a post by Books A True Story which gave me a push to order it up from the library. And I owe her for the recommendation.
This book is quirky – in a good way. It is about a gifted woman who has retreated as a result of feeling a failure. Both the woman, Bernadette, and her daughter Bee are well drawn. The other characters are very slightly 'cartoonish' – but again this is not a criticism.
There are some very funny parts in the book. And I did find it to be a page turner. Overall, a very good read.
