Laura Barnard writes the kind of stuff I love to read - potty-mouthed heroines and steamy sex scenes. Uh huh. Dopey Women lays it on thick and juicy. Sadie is a terrific lead character - smart, caring but not immune to the occasional act of stupidity. She's supported by a fun cast of misfits, each endearing in their own way and tending towards foolishness on a slightly more regular basis. Dopey Women also include my favourite hero - the anti-hero - the one Sadie is not supposed to like but simply cannot resist. I love those bad boys.
The story is fast-paced and hard to put down - riddled with twists and turns you won't see coming. I loved it and I can't wait to read more of Laura's work.
My favorite characters in Dopey Women are Sadie and Mags. The author has gifted both of these women with grand personalities! While Lexi and Steph were a little annoying, Mags and Sadie were fun, piss-your-pants funny, intelligent and honest. What I loved most about the both of them was that they seemed to have the strongest connection, like mother and daughter. Their moral compass may have been off by a bit…okay a lot, yet it still took strength to move forward after they knew the consequences. In my opinion, no one likes to read about someone’s perfect life—and theirs were all far from it! Harry seemed very stand-offish at first; however, I warmed up to him quickly and could see what direction his life was heading before him!
I really enjoyed reading the story because it was highly creative, well-written and fast-paced. The author was able to hold my attention throughout the entire read. Overall, this was a wonderful read. I would have to note that I think this story to be inappropriate for anyone under the age of eighteen due to the language and situational dilemmas that are placed into the plot of the story. It was incredibly difficult to put down and any books that I have difficulty with this problem deserve five stars!
What can I say? It was amazing. I enjoyed this book a lot! From the first page the story sucked me in and wouldn't let go. I read in one sitting. Maybe 4-5 hours? It was that Good!
The story flows perfectly and characters are brilliantly developed. Simply amazing.
The main character, Sadie, after 10 years at her current job she has been made redundant. Gone her years of hard work, of long hours. One day, during job search, she bumps into 3 other ladies that were made redundant together with her: Lexi, Mags and Steph. They decide to catch up.
All of them start to tell their stories after they lost their jobs. Mags, who lost her job and a husband, found out she has a cancer. Steph became a lonely mother after her boyfriend decided she is not it and run away. Lexi also have a sad story: she is in abusive relationship and is not sure how to reclaim her freedom.
After a long catch up they decide to do something. Something that will help not only them but other people. And what they decide? No. Not put a company together or anything like that. They found themselves doing drugs.
This causes them to be on a radar of a big bad drug lord and also police.
I will not tell you the rest as you have to read it!!
Amazing 5 stars!!
Oh wow, I loved this book.
The plot was not only unique, it stayed on point, never lost focused, and it was surprising. I loved all the characters, their struggles and just connecting with each one on a emotional level. I never knew I could feel so much for fictional characters as I have with these woman. Each struggle, heart break, happiness, and joy, I felt.
I was sad when this was over, but fulfilled. For me I felt that there where no lose ends, or questions unanswered.
The road to rebuild was touching, but the way it was written, I couldn't stop laughing. Witty, fun, and consent I was never bored. Throw in a sexy detective, that is always around the corner, and you have the perfect mix for an out-of-this-world romcom.
There are very few books that I can read in one sitting, and this was one of them. To me the ability to write a world so captivating that you are lost with in it's pages, is pure magic. To make me laugh out loud, will that pure witch craft.
I would like to thank Laura Barnard giving my the opportunity to read this astonishing work of art.
