Beth shows that women really can have it all.

Ruby lives life by her own rules.

And then there’s Lauren, living the dream.

As perfect as it looks?

Beth hasn’t had sex in a year.

A brilliant listen

I loved listening to ever minute of this book. It had me laughing out loud. There was also lots of tender moments too. Dawn writes with such great insights into women’s minds the world of Instagram and #influencers. It is so refreshing. The narration performances really complemented the characters. Love it and can’t wait for the next one. It would make an epic movie too. #blessed #solucky #kiwifan.
Love your work Dawn and your IG.

Adored the book, SO LUCKY!

I’m an Instagram follower of Dawn’s and expected the book to be a bit sillier, based on the fun the has on her IG stories. The book was darker than I expected, but I liked the humor, nonetheless. I found the contemporary analysis of life as we live it, now, on modern social media quite revelatory, deep. “Well done, ya saucy minx,” I’d say, if I knew Dawn in person, which I do not, but feel like I do, and wish I did. #hugs

Just seemed to miss the mark!

I had high hopes for this book as I loved The Cows however it feels like O'Porter is just trying to be shocking for the sake of it. The way in which some of her characters act and think just seem far fetched and ridiculous at times. I didn't hate the book completely but wouldn't recommend it! I like the style of the writing and always appreciate when authors give you multiple narrator's but I'm afraid I just didn't find it an entertaining book. If you listened to The Cows and were put off by the train scene (which I actually wasn't) then So Lucky won't be for you.

Disappointed

I absolutely loved ‘Cows’ and so was really looking forward to a new novel by Dawn O’ Porter... ‘So Lucky’ just didn’t meet the same standard. I found it hard to even like the lead characters and some of the scenarios ridiculously far fetched.
A really difficult read.

Another brilliant listen by Dawn O'Porter!

I loved it from start to finish. If you liked her other books, you'll love this and if you've never read any but are in need a of female positivity pick you up, look no further! I binge listened in 2 days and loved every minute!

Great Message, Wonderfully Delivered

Really loved the themes in this book. It has a great takeaway message told through great characters and with the insight of someone who has gone through this themselves. Highly recommend.

Fantastic!!

Brilliantly thought provoking. We all have our issues and we must accept and love ourselves. Flaws make us perfectly unique.

Equal measure hilarious & heartbreaking

A light listen, not too intense, however be prepared if you listen in a public place you will laugh out loud!

A good listen.

Enjoyed the story of three very different woman who are struggling with unseen and in some ways similar issues. Enjoyable and emotional at times! I laughed out loud and shed a tear at different points. Would definitely recommend. 👍

Wanted to love it, but just ok

Wasn’t as good as I’d hoped. Felt a bit juvenile and shallow in parts...the characters felt like a jumble of cliches as opposed to real life well-observed human beings. Bit of a bog-standard, predictable chick lit really.

Such a refreshing book!

Well written and read. Caught my attention from the start and I didn’t want it to end. More real than many books I’ve listened to recently so I’m pleased I bought it.
