It won’t be forever. You’ll be in the dark for as long as it takes and then you’ll come out
I thought Finding Audrey might be an okay representation of anxiety disorder, but wasn’t very great and had a bit problem that never got solved anyway.
Book Review: Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
Title & Author: Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Release date: June 4 2015
Publisher: Delacorte Books
Audrey can’t leave the house. she can’t even take off her dark glasses inside the house.
Then her brother’s friend Linus stumbles into her life. With his friendly, orange-slice smile and his funny notes, he starts to entice Audrey out again – well, Starbucks is a start. And with Linus at her side, Audrey feels like she can do the things she’d thought were too scary. Suddenly, finding her way back to the real world seems achievable.
I give Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella three out of five hearts because I thought it wasn’t a great novel. Yes it has all the elements of a chick-lit and romance novel. But it portrays anxiety disorder just as being scared even though it is so much for.
The writing was okay, but sometimes I found that the focus was more on Audrey’s brother than her.
Audrey is stuck at home with a anxiety disorder after something happened with a different girl. There is not real moment where that event is cleared up for the reader which makes it really hard for me to understand why she has the anxiety disorder.
Finding Audrey isn’t the greatest read, it is a perfectly fine read, but don’t expect to learn a lot about Audrey to understand her. Overall I think the novel is a bit superficial.
