Quick easy summer reading

 Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
Where’d You Go, Bernadette?

By: Maria Semple

Genre:  Adult fiction

Pages: 330

Published: 2012

Read: July

3 out of 5

A nice, quick summer read without being fluffy. The book is funny and entertaining with just enough of a twist to keep the reader guessing. The story is told mostly through letters, faxes, and other written communication. I enjoyed the writing style of this book; a nice change of pace. The author had an intended purpose for writing it in such a manner, which adds to the creativity of the novel itself.  Sometimes I struggle with whether to read the novel or listen to the audio book. And sometimes I make mistakes. I originally was going to listen to this one on audio. I am glad I choose to read this one because with the unique writing format I think listening to the novel would have made it rather confusing. I recommend this to women who want a good laugh without reading a humor book.
