Upfront bit: I received a free copy of Barbs’ new book ” Life Begins When The Kids Leave Homes And The Dog Dies” – available on Amazon – in exchange for my promise to do a review. I have been a little delayed, (sorry Barb), but have caught up with it today.
Please pardon by lack of “review cleverness” in the following, I would love to be able to write a clever piece, but I’m just not good at that sort of thing, so it’s just plain English from me.
I enjoyed this selection of short stories by Barb, as she writes in an easy to read, witty manner. Reading them was like dipping into your favourite sweets, knowing that you will enjoy them whatever you choose.
Some made me laugh out loud, some made me thoughtful, and one even made me a little sad – but underlying all that was the “feel-good” factor of indulging in a few moments of pure reading happiness.
This is a lovely collection of well-written, funny short stories. A great read for any place and any time.
If you haven’t caught up with Barb’s blog yet, do yourself a favour and hop over there to indulge in some good old-fashioned wit and laugh out loud moments. She really knows how to write about life’s little quirks in a way that is guaranteed to make you smile.
