This author is apparently one of my favorites, ’cause it seems every one of her books I’ve read, I’ve loved. Each one of her stories is unique and unforgettable, often exploring a more taboo look into “adult-life”. Having personal (and very private) desires, her relatable characters might just complete each other. But not without a bit of personal turmoil and angst in the mix.
But what I especially love about her characters is that we can see ourselves in them. Them…in us. We can recognize (and relate) to their adult lives through their worries, their habits. Their boredoms. Their hopes and their dreams. Their disappointments and their achievements. And even in their need for more. Because, you see… each one of her characters (at least the ones I’ve come to know) has his/her own very particular “twist”. But… we can often relate to that, even. Whether their *quirk* is ours or not ours, by the time we reach it, we take it in and experience it like out own.
