Where'd You Go, Bernadette: A Novel

I flew through this book, loved the witty prose and found it such a pleasurable read that it left me desperate to read any other work by Maria Semple.

She has produced a great gift to avid readers: a book that you never want to finish reading.

It's the rare book that actually deserves the term "laugh-out-loud funny".

This is an inventive and very funny novel that gets bonus points for transcending form.

"Where'd You Go Bernadette," outrageously funny and deceptively deep, is a rewarding read.

Where'd you go, Bernadette is a sassy page-turner, filled with sardonic commentary on parenting, progressive schools, Seattle, the life of the privileged, and more.

A fun beach read for urban sophisticates or those who think they are.
