My Review

Bold and hilarious contemporary women’s fiction. So Lucky by Dawn O’Porter will have you laughing out loud and help you realise that you are actually pretty lucky after all.

Three women are doing their best to project a perfect life to the outside world, but are actually feeling miserable on the inside. Beth has the perfect career, but her marriage is falling apart; Ruby has a shameful (in her eyes) secret and feels like she is failing at everything; and Lauren’s dream life is definitely not as perfect as it seems. A big event brings them all together and out comes the truth; nobody’s life is perfect, but that’s ok.

I really loved the character in this novel, and some of the more minor characters had a big impact. There were a more than a few laugh out loud moments, but I should also warn you that some a the humour is not for the faint of heart!

“So Lucky” highlights a very common struggle that most women face: the pressure to have the perfect life is enormous and impossible to ever truly achieve. We all have our struggles and it is often made easier to cope with when we share our struggles with each other.

5 stars!

Synopsis

IS ANYONE’S LIFE . . .

Beth shows that women really can have it all.
Ruby lives life by her own rules.
And then there’s Lauren, living the dream.

AS PERFECT AS IT LOOKS?

Beth hasn’t had sex in a year.
Ruby feels like she’s failing.
Lauren’s happiness is fake news.

And it just takes one shocking event to make the truth come tumbling out…

Fearless, frank and for everyone who’s ever doubted themselves, So Lucky is the straight-talking new novel from the Sunday Times bestseller.

Actually, you’re pretty f****** lucky to be you.

‘A total joy’ Matt Haig

‘Compulsively gripping and taps into the shame and self-hatred we *all* battle with. It is also very, very funny’ Sara Pascoe
