“It was six weeks till Christmas. Mollie and Tyler were contemplating where to head to recharge this time. Last year was a success: they went on a transformational retreat in South Africa, a camp combining regeneration of the body and mind: in other words, a week of starvation combined with psychedelic drugs. Mollie felt ecstatic having lost eight pounds in ten days.”

Late Bloomers on hieno ja tarkka ajankuva sekä myös iätön katsaus itsensähehittämisuskonnon valheellisuuteen. 5/5

Lukemisesta on jo ehtinyt tovi vierähtää, mutta muistelisin pitäneeni! Hauska pieni kirjanen. Osa tarinoista tuntuu vähän liian övereiltä osoittelevaisuudessaan (että katsokaa nyt näitä hölmöjä suorittajaihmisiä), vaikka samalla ne ovat överiytensä takia just niin osuvia. Tunnistettavia juttuja ja piirteitä esimerkiksi työelämässä. Konsulttiläpät nauratti, koska ne liippasivat vähän liiankin läheltä. Helppoa ja luettavaa englantia, mutta en ikinä osaa enkkutekstejä arvioida jälkikäteen täysillä. ...more

Maybe more like 2,5. I wanted to like it, but at sometimes it went a bit overboard and sometimes I felt that the fault was in me. I just didn’t maybe grasp the point in all the stories. I liked the structure though.

Surprising easy to read, hard to forget, awakens tons of thoughts.

Hauskoja ja karmivia tarinoita nykypäivän työ- ja muustakin elämästä, jossa ylisuorittaminen on uusi normaali. Parhaiten jäi mieleen toimistokoira, joka sai potkut koska ei ollut tarpeeksi tehokas.

Kirja käsitteli tärkeitä aiheita, mutta jäi latteaksi. En ymmärtänyt kaikkia tarinoita ihan kunnolla tai sitten ne ei vaan iskeneet muhun. Kirjan kuvitus ja idea ovat kyllä kauniita.

Not a book to read before going to bed because the overachieving people made me even more anxious than I was. Nieminen is a sharp writer and she made me laugh several times but she seems to also be awfully right with her depictions of overachievers.

The illustrations were lovely.
