Book blurb

Have you ever imagined a different life?
Have you ever stood at a crossroads, undecided?
Have you ever had a moment when you wanted to roar?
From much-loved, international bestseller Cecelia Ahern come stories for all of us: the women who befriend us, the women who encourage us, the women who make us brave. From The Woman Who Slowly Disappeared to The Woman Who Returned and Exchanged her Husband, discover thirty touching, often hilarious, stories and meet thirty very different women. Each discovers her strength; each realizes she holds the power to make a change.

Witty, tender, surprising, these keenly observed tales speak to us all, and capture the moment when we all want to roar.

A Radio 2 Bookclub Choice.

 

My thoughts

This is the first book by Cecelia Ahern that I have read and it’s a very enjoyable collection of short stories about women who find themselves in one kind of predicament or another. They are poignant, witty, charming stories that many women will relate to and, indeed, many men.

An accomplished book from a well-known and accomplished writer it will make you smile, make you laugh and, yes, perhaps shed a tear. I found that reading it over a few days dipping into a story or two at a time was very enjoyable but I’m sure many will just sit and read from start to finish. Either way a book to relish.

The perfect book for those who enjoy reading short stories or can only snatch a few minutes here and there to read.

With thanks to HarperCollins UK via NetGalley for an eCopy of ROAR by Cecilia Ahern. All thoughts are my own, I have not received any payment for the review of this book.
