Always The Last to Know

Kristan Higgins

Β 

400 pages

Berkeley Books

Published June 9, 2020

 

I started this book with absolutely no expectations. I have seen the author’s name pop up in my Goodreads newsfeed but I have not read her. This came as a pleasant surprise.

Β 

This story is a family drama, told from different viewpoints. Even though it is a serious subject, some of the narrative is quite humorous. Each character gets a fair bit of narrative so we get to know them quite well. Each member of the family had their own story to tell

Β 

Barbara is planning on telling John that she wants a divorce, on their 50th anniversary. She does not get the chance because he has a debilitating stroke on the day before the anniversary.

Β 

Then there are 2 daughters, slightly jealous of each other. And they each have their own issues. Lots of drama.

Β 

Family conflict, secrets (of course!), changing relationships.

Β 

My favourite line in the whole book was: β€œHer vagina is so special, it has unicorns in it.”

Β 

And they all lived happily after.
