in realtà è un YA, di cui non sono né appassionata né esperta per ragioni anagrafiche e di gusto. Comunque non è male, una discreta lettura da ombrellone abbastanza divertente, soprattutto nella prima parte. La seconda, dove si tirano le somme e si fa la morale a destra e a sinistra, tutti diventano buoni e bravi e vissero sempre felici e contenti è molto meno interessante.
Niente di particolare, e niente di particolarmente originale (molte situazioni sono già abbondantemente viste e riviste), ma qualche ideuzza c'è. Tuttavia, visto quanto se n'era parlato a suo tempo e quanto era stato elogiato, pensavo meglio
At the beginning this book sounds very odd, because is written in a very particular way, it's a collection of letters, mails, fax. Just on the end there is a more "normal" chapter. So at first you find it a big difficult to read but then you completely fall in love with it and this type of writing.
Bernardette and Bee are so adorable, funny and smart. What I liked the most were the thoughts of Bernardette about Seattle, the Canadian, the people that live in Seattle, etc...
I found some part of my personality in her and that's was very nice to discover.
It's the first time in many years that I finish a book and I'm sad about it. I've had such a good time reading Where'd you go, Bernadette, so much in fact that I feel time stopped whilst I was immersed in its pages. I fell in love with Bee and her unconditional love for her mother, with Bernadette for being so uniquely eccentric, with the mean ones well, for being mean and making me laugh...
I loved the letter/email/fax/and all kinds of written (and oral at times, too) communication style Semple uses to bring us this story. The dialogues, the narrative, they're all so direct and witty! How come I had not heard about this author before? Where have I been?
I can't wait to read (and keep, as opposed to borrow from the library) more of her books.
This is a marvelous book with a creative theme and witty lines. The part that accounts how Bernadette rediscovered herself and what is best for her and the family is great and touching.
