Chantal | 435 comments I finished part 1 and 2, first 30 pages I had to get used to the writing style. The main characteur is a really weird figure LOL

Janet Creasy (jmcreasy75) I'm a tad confused. Is this April or May's group read?

This month so May

Judith | 18 comments I liked the writing style but found character development challenging to figure out who was who. I felt right away that Bernadette needed mental health help. And the book confirmed for me that I am increasingly unhappy with books about dysfunctional families and prefer books in which the characters have to deal with adversity. It might be tough for them to deal with their circumstances but generally I can relate to heir characters.

Ashleigh Motbey | 928 comments I'm not 100% if I've completed this part yet, as I'm listening to the audio book, but I quite like the narration so far. I find the incessant emails aspect maybe a bit annoying, but I like Bee's character!
