What a strange book The writing is very sparse At time the book reads like someone’s notes about a book than an actual story And it's funny how the use of initials instead of names threw me for a loop In this book a woman gives birth to her firstborn just as a flood envelopes London She and her husband escape to a mountain to live with his parents But they are forced to keep moving and half the time the reasons are not filled in People come people go It's like as the world ends so does her ability to maintain a complete thought Most of this book revolves around watching her baby grow and the normalcy of his development contrasted with how the outside world has changed I'm sure the choppy writing was meant to symbolize what was happening But for me it just irritated It was all I could do to finish this and the only reason I did is that it's a very short book My thanks to netgalley and Picador for an advance copy of this book When A Bitch Fed Up of new life and new hope – sings with lo.
