Corrinne didn’t reach for her highest-feeling thought, or view it as a neutral event as she recommends in her book, when her husband left her for another woman. Instead, she took her revenge by, among other things, cutting out the crotch of every pair of his trousers and arranging for daily deliveries of incontinence pads, enemas and halitosis cures to the flat he was now sharing with his new girlfriend. So now she’s at the mercy of the reactions of three random women and the choices they make.
Janet, Debbie and Kate are likeable characters, very relatable and realistic, I enjoyed following their stories. The chapters flip between Debbie and Kate in Skelthorpe-on-Sea and Janet in the Gambia, with the odd extract from Corrinne’s book. In one way or another they have difficult choices to make and situations to deal with and how they coped was feasible and although being abandoned in the Gambia wouldn’t be my idea of fun, Janet made the right decision for her.
Initially the story seems light-hearted but there are pertinent issues which are dealt with sympathetically. I loved the supernatural touch, Nessa was an excellent character and it was fun to see the ways she manoeuvred each of the women into reading Corrinne’s book. The scenes set in the Gambia were vividly descriptive. A very enjoyable read.
I chose to read and review Perfect Responses based on a copy of the book supplied by the author/publisher.
A self-help writer finds herself judged by God (in a furry yellow duck suit) because she was not living according to the advice that she sold to the world. Now, three women chosen to apply the advice in her book must be able to change their lives for the better as a result, proving the book not to be utter garbage, or the writer will be trapped in limbo forever.
This book was extremely heartfelt and engaging. There were characters and situations that took me by surprise. I laughed out loud more than once. I absolutely enjoyed the journey, as well as the journey of all the characters and I'm still wondering how they are doing after reading the book. This book balanced lightness simultaneously with depth and intelligence. It made my heart happy. Witty, fun, AND intelligent! Yay!
This was the first book I've read by Margaret Johnson and I am excited to read more. It's always the best discovery when you enjoy an author thoroughly and then find out there are more books already waiting!
I received an ARC of this novel in return for an honest review.
