Book: In conversations with Strangers

18363163I read this over the space of a few days and really enjoyed it. I have seen other readers complain that the main character of this book is weird and that they didn’t feel they had gone on the journey. Such was not the case for me. I found that I related very well to Janine and followed her journey very well. Perhaps this is because she is very much like me…or I am a lot like her.

I did find that the catalyst of her self destruction was a little cliche, but then, life is cliche too, quite often! In some ways, I found the stories of the strangers she met along the way a little distracting, and they didn’t really contribute to moving the story along. They could have been left out, completely and the story would not suffer for it. Simply recording the conversations would have been enough for me.

A good, quick read and I enjoyed the lesbian interest. Will be looking for this author’s other works.

About megleigh

When not busy writing, Meg Leigh spends her time tending to the most pampered flock of chickens on Australia’s east coast. She would really like to have dragons, but has settled for chickens because they come pretty close. If you need proof of this, try offering a flock of chickens raw meat! (Meg would like to advise she accepts no liability for loss of fingers!) Meg also enjoys reading, keeping fit with her bunch of madcap mates at the local park, and spending time with her adult offspring whenever their schedules allow.
