Margo leaves her husband on the motorway when his verbal abuse reaches new heights.
The people that she encounters along the way are richly drawn giving the reader secondary characters that move the story along.
Finding Margo is Susanne O'Learys second book that I have read, the first was Swedish For Beginners which I thoroughly enjoyed as well. Thank you Susanne, I look forward to reading Fresh Powder next.
On her own in Paris, and abandoning all she has expected and accepted in the past, Margo faces a string of obstacles -- friends, mates, class structure, long-hidden family dynamics -- in discovering her new self.
To the last moment, you wonder whether Margo has in fact redirected her destiny, or if she has instead repopulated the original script. Will she realize her original choices in life were the right fit for her, or has she broken the chains that bind one to an undeviating course? You may think you see the ending but, sadly or not, the new Margo will surprise you.
The characters in "Finding Margo" are beautifully created and possess familiar and believable personalities. These people evolve in realistic and sometimes unexpected directions, a credit to Susanne O'Leary's ability to understand and portray the complexity of real-life personalities. Add in the author's Parisian city and French countryside backdrops, and you find yourself pausing to savor the scenes of this created world but feeling compelled to continue on Margo's journey -- just not too quickly please; make it last.
Susanne O'Leary has a smooth, flowing and unrestrained writing style. She has written "Finding Margo" with a playful and energetic touch, yet with a depth suitable to the eternal quandary of how one chooses to live life.
I read Fresh Powder just a few days ago, and enjoyed it immensely. It was with some concern that I purchased Finding Margo; afraid it couldn't possibly equal Fresh Powder. But I think it even surpassed it. I'm so happy to have a new author to follow!
The book's a fun, breezy read. Sure there are couple inconsistencies (like she pays for ice cream though she doesn't have money), but I can live with them as long as the writing is good (which it is), and there aren't too many errors (there aren't).
The story has eccentric characters, mystery, different threads which come together neatly in the end.
For me this was worth a read, and not just because it was free. Even if I'd paid for it, I'd have felt I got my money's worth.
