HEY GUYS!! IT’S BEEN SO LONG!!! We’ve finally pulled ourselves together and decided to take some time and do something that we really enjoy that is writing Blog posts. So hopefully you’ll get regular posts from us now.
Today I will be reviewing one of Sophie Kinsella’s latest books – Finding Audrey!
This book’s about Audrey (duh!) a fourteen-year old girl facing social anxiety disorder and is slowly progressing with Dr.Sarah who keeps telling her that rushing through the process is not going to help her and that her slope of recovery should be slowly but steadily rising. An important role is played by her brother Frank , who is gamer and is “addicted” to video games, he is the one who alongside Audrey has problems of his own and is dealing with them with his own methods. Her entire family has a huge role in the entire story and Audrey’s life , they’re the ones who stick by her when she most needs them and support her throughout her psychological recovery.Another very important person is Linus , Frank’s gaming partner, who also helps Audrey but not in a romantic and magical manner that everyone (including me) expected after reading the summary.
The characters in this book are very realistic , they aren’t people who can exist only in books, basically they’re imperfectly perfect human beings trying to get through life like the rest of us. Also , Linus doesn’t just magically make Audrey fall in love and show her all the answers to her problems , he is actually the first person Audrey interacts with apart from her family and Dr.Sarah .Their relationship does have downfalls like any normal relationship .
This book is not all about her recovery , well it sort of is but it shows us bits of everyone’s lives including her parents. There is also a lot of humour which is because of one of Dr.Sarah’s assignments for Audrey which is to film everything she sees , I can easily say that these are my favourite parts in the book, she catches some of the funniest things that probably happen in most of our houses.
This is the first book by Sophie Kinsella that I’ve read and I really enjoyed it , I’m really looking forward to reading more books from her.
Sophie Kinsella has touched topics in this book which others have managed to escape , she has managed to talk about these things without ruining the mood of the book . I felt that it had a perfect balance between seriousness and humour which , I haven’t read in many books .
If you’re debating whether you should read it or not , I suggest you go ahead and give it a try and please let me know your thoughts . I personally would rate this book a 3.7 out of 5.
I would also like to give a huge shout out to @bookwormgirls123 for motivating us to come back .Thank you so much!! Without your support we probably wouldn’t have posted anything this week!
See you guys next week!
P.S Sorry that the review is really short and please forgive me if my writing was rusty in this 🙂
