Everything about this book was perfect except for the reviews - it is NOT like Bridget Jones Diary. It is SO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, other than it's a first person narrative about a woman. It is beautiful, complicated, heartbreaking and completely fantastic. It was not the light read I thought it would be, but I'm actually glad for it. Queenie is truly wonderful, the character and the book. Candice Carty-Williams is a fantastic writer - one who truly knows how to describe things like mental health and its recovery. Shvorne Marks is the perfect narrator. Honestly, if you haven't read this book yet - you're mad. And if you have read it, read it again.

Buy this book, then buy it again

An incredible book - well researched, well read and properly interesting. Witty, charming and interesting. I will be buying the hard copy of it, just to enjoy reading it again physically on a cloudy Saturday.
