Reviews

Extremely funny, often laugh-out-loud so ... with her penchant for unexpected twists and smart jet-propelled dialogue, Semple has a way of combining a technologically savvy, ice-cool wit with a stealthy ability to show gradually a character's warmer side - SUNDAY TIMESThe characters in BERNADETTE may be in real emotional pain, but Semple has the wit and perspective and imagination to make their story hilarious. I tore through this book with heedless pleasureA clever, witty page-turner with sparkling dialogue, some hilarious episodes and a heart that gradually melts - MAIL ON SUNDAY[A] deeply touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's place in the world. A seriously compulsive read - STYLISTIn what is at times a sad and painful tale about family dysfunction, black comedy waylays sentimentality . . . a witty, thrilling adventure about creation, destruction, the Antarctic - and the maternal bond - OBSERVERThe funniest book I've read in a decade. I laughed to the point of crying on an airplane. My wife thought I'd lost my mind until she read it a few days later - MARIE CLAIRE
