Brilliant, Charming Novel! I genuinely loved every minute of this read! I was given an advanced copy for my honest review, and here it is.... I was totally blown away by the story, the language and the wit and humor. Stella Fosse has really hit gold with her first novel. I found myself continually highlighting comments that were either hysterically funny or blisteringly satirical. The story called to mind two funny movies that made me laugh out loud, '9 to 5' and 'The Book Club', but with a brilliantly scientific plot twist. The story was airtight, as was the organization of the chapters. While clearly fictional, the novel felt real and possible in a metaphorical sense. The characters were both believable and interesting. I kept picturing the book as a movie and quite frankly, if I were a famous actress, I would love to play one of the leads. If this book doesn't go places, I will be very, very surprised!
