's review

it was amazing

I have been waiting so very long (it seems) for this multi-talented lady to come out with a new book. As the Crow Flies and Fall on Your Knees are on my list of favourite books ever. Okay, it may be a bit of a long list. But hey, all I do is read.

Adult Onset is distinctly personal and at times comes across as self-indulgent until it hits you - that's how it's supposed to me. The inner machinations of the human mind - bored, distressed, anxious, overwhelmed... everything we try to hide from others is right there for us to read.

At times uncomfortable, MacDonald nails it for us. The way the mind can work so clearly and trick us at the same time. Even though everything is right in front of us.

She is a brilliant author, and this is a difficult subject. I'm not sure how much is autobiographical, but I am sure at least fragments are.

Definitely bound to win a few literary awards.
