Lori Belkin has been dumped. By her parents. They moved out while she was away on holiday, and now, at the tender age of twenty-five, she's been cruelly forced to stand on her own two feet. While she's getting to grips with basic adulting, Lori magically brings to life the super-sexy man she created from celebrity photos as a teenager. Lori learns very quickly that having your ideal man is not as satisfying as it ought to be and that being an adult is far harder than it looks. Snowflake is a story about prehistoric pets, delinquent donkeys and becoming the person you want to be, not the person everyone else expects you to be.
I love when a book can take you by surprise and lead you on a journey….this said journey had me guffawing loudly and a lot! Probably with a couple of snorts too!
Lori has come home from a “research” trip to Crete. Excited to be home to see her parents and get back to blogging, drawing and normality. What happens when she gets back to her home is completely the opposite. Her parents sold their house and moved all her stuff into her brothers flat and got her a job interview at the local university as a cleaner. I must say, I get the reasons her parents went, but to just abandon their daughter like that was a bit harsh, to say the least!
The escapades that ensue are so fricking hilarious, a naked man jumping through the window, the OCD of the Head of the flat association, her driving instructor, being drunk making bread, 3,000 condoms, and a donkey are just some of, rather a small amount, the funniest things that happen in this book. One thing I will add is…Ashbert! Ashbert is every girl’s dream… I will not tell you how Ashbert comes into the story, but it is hilarious!
It took me two sittings to read this book, I didn’t want to leave Lori, literally everything she did ends in a disaster, bless her she did try! But everything got worse. She was naive and completely a deer in headlights but she was so endearing and I would love to be her friend because you know it would never be a dull moment with her!!
This book really did make me laugh! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked this up but from the moment I met Lori, it was never dull. I want to sit and talk about this book all day and it would never get boring. There is so much entertainment in the pages, whilst Lori discovers how to do adulting and live the path she is meant to, although she doesn’t know what that path is just yet and no amount of Mcfly will help her! The authors have done such a fantastic job in keeping the humour going throughout the book, keeping you entertained and caring about Lori.
If you are looking for a book to make you giggle, cheer you up and teach you a couple of things then this is definitely the book for you! If you don’t, well you need to read it for Ashbert at least…it’s all written in the stars my little snowflake!
