The Book of Ordinary People
Rating: 4 / 5
In her new novel Claire Varley weaves a tale of five ordinary people who become extraordinary within their own tiny circles.
Each of the five charming and magical portraits the author has created cause minuscule ripples that make the world better in uncountable little ways.
In the beginning I found this book difficult to get into, as it jumped from character to character, but as I persevered it soon began to grow on me in surprising ways.
You will experience a smorgasbord of emotions as the characters become inextricably linked and by the end of the book you may like me, fall in love with each of them.
Set in suburban Melbourne, The Book of Ordinary People has a great ending.
