In a time when it seems more and more difficult to find entertaining yet substantive books, Queenie's Teapot shines. Hoping for a sequel soon!!
Characters aside, Carolyn pulls her readers into a tale of ‘what ifs’. She explores the idea of a new structure of government, where democracy has been declared outdated, and she highlights strengths as well as weaknesses. Queenie’s Teapot always had me itching to get to the next page, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to dive into a realm of political possibility.
** I received a copy of the book for free, but was so enamored by it that I was compelled to purchase a couple of copies to give away as gifts. I voluntarily wrote this review. **
‘We’re all just plebs, that’s the point. If there’s a point at all.’
The Queen is dead, long live the Cabinet!
In 2023 Great Britain is now represented by appointed representatives and manipulated by a cadre of 'handlers' who are to school them in running the country. The question becomes, who's handling the handlers?
And Queenie Mason's just been appointed for a three year term. Her life, and the lives of the rest of the "Citizen Representatives " will never be the same! Made redundant by a computer, Queenie and her husband Bert are moved into a flat at Buck Place, where not only she will learn how to represent her country, but teach her teachers a thing or two as well.
It all begins with a cuppa tea and a caring person....
This is a political satire. Even with my familiarity with Great Britain, this was not an easy read. I love "Brit Coms" but seeing them on TV is so different than reading one, and this one took a while. Bottom line is that it is pretty good, but I felt like I missed a step or so, and played "catch up" for the rest of the book.
All in all,I loved Queenie and started out not thrilled with way her handlers seemed to be manipulating her and the others. It took the computer "geeks" storyline for me to really begin to enjoy the story. I recommend this book
In a society today where people are upset with the government in different places, this is a nice take on how things could be different if a normal citizen becomes in charge and can help shape things.
You are drawn in to these characters and they make you feel and think and really just enjoy this book. They seem more alive then some book as if you are living this life right along side them.
