First read of the trip. It was over before I ever felt like I spent any time sitting down to read it. Fluid and fast moving and a reminder that drug, drink fuelled superficial lifestyles are usually a product of a darker undertones that creates a sense of emptiness. Mostly read in between tram trips in Munich and soundtracked to german conversations.
I loved this at first – it felt quite realistic and funny but towards the end it left me frustrated with its depiction of women only being fulfilled from marriage or children. Read in the Black Forest, mostly soundtracked to the sound of occasional school groups invading our secret lake swimming spot.
Slightly indulgent and kinda crazy, but it was nice to read a book about women and friendship instead of just about men. A nice balance after finishing White dresses. Read in the sunshine by the pool in Heidelberg. Soundtracked to swimming pools.
