You, Me and Other People
By Fionnuala Kearney
The stunning debut novel from Fionnuala Kearney – already a Top Ten Irish Times bestsellerTweet
I loved this book. It's about a couple (Beth & Adam) who separate due to Adam's infidelity for a second time. Beth struggles to cope with this and as the story unfolds it appears that Adam has secrets from his past which affect the whole family. The author tells the story from everyone's perspective and I found it extremely interesting to see things from every angle. It was a really good read.
I enjoyed this book. It's about Beth and Adam - how their marriage falls apart because of Adam's infidelities and the secrets in his past. It was good to see Beth gradually rebuild her life.
Each chapter is written in the first person and at the beginning it took a page or so before it dawned which character was the 'I'. However, I soon got used to this and just enjoyed the story as it unfolded.
A good holiday read.
