Following the Winter Reading Challenge 2020, each month we’ll be sharing information on one of the titles with the review provided by the reader.
This month, we’re promoting ‘Girl, Woman, Other‘ the 2019 Booker Prize Winner by Bernardine Evaristo, which has been recommended as ‘an excellent read’
“There are 12 main characters in this book, and each chapter tells the story from their point of view. The characters, although some of them being so completely different from one another, and from different walks of life, are all connected in some way. It was interesting to see how their lives were all intertwined. It covers a range of topics, in particular what it means to be a person of colour in the UK, from different generations. It also touches on race, politics, relationships, gender, childhood trauma and so much more. Although it is a work of fiction, I feel like I does represent what really goes on in the world, and has given me an insight into what other people’s lives and experiences are like – that I may not have necessarily considered in such depth before. Would definitely recommend!”
Available in paperback or as a kindle ebook.
