Recensioner i media
I loved every word...I couldn't put down! -- Meg Cabot Deeply moving but also uplifting, Mary Adkins' debut novel is easy to read but hard to forget -- Anne Youngson, author of Meet Me at the Museum This inventive and hilarious novel has it all: Mid-life crisis sufferers denying their regrets, a lawless intern with alarming email etiquette, poetic online therapists and a moving message about the resiliency of the human heart. Read this book - I loved it! -- Courtney Maum, author of Touch and I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You Surpassed my expectations with flying colours. From the subject matter you might expect that reading the book would amount to taking your pleasures rather too sadly, but I was delighted by the humour in the plot. It's gentle, subtle humour which makes you smile . . . I loved the book and I know that it's one I'll return to before too long, to pick up on all the gems which I'm sure I've missed * The Book Bag * Warm, original, funny and heartbreaking, this novel made me drop everything so I could read it in one lovely afternoon . . . inventive and witty, but more importantly it's honest and wise. I adored it. -- Jennifer Close, author of Girls in White Dresses and The Hopefuls A remarkable new take on the epistolary novel, When You Read This manages to thread the finest of needles: a book about a young woman who died of cancer that is neither maudlin nor sentimental, but rather clear-eyed, poignant, and just as often hilarious as it is sombre . . . memorable -- Doree Shafrir, author of Startup: A Novel As with Maria Semple's mixed-media masterwork Where'd You Go, Bernadette, Adkins's debut novel is so much more than its clever style. I read it briskly with a permanent smile on my face, even when the tears were falling . . . miraculous and leaves a lasting impression long after its final moment -- Val Emmich, author of The Reminders and Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel A touching, funny, and life-affirming tale * Publishers Weekly * When You Read This checks all the essential boxes of Up Lit - thought-provoking, tear-jerking, funny- and adds a delectable epistolary twist. * Refinery29 * This gentle tragicomedy unfolds in a series of text messages, blog posts and emails . . . while dealing sensitively with loss * Daily Mail *
