Norma’s Review

Emotive, all-embracing, & a sweeping saga!

MRS. EVERYTHING by JENNIFER WEINER is a timely, rich, emotional, gripping, and thought-provoking saga that spans decades between two sisters, Jo and Bethie. We get an intimate look into each of these character’s lives as we follow along their story. MRS. EVERYTHING gives us a realistic and true to life story about women that well deals with everything. This was definitely an eye-opening reading experience for me as it delves deep into their everyday struggles as well as giving a voice to all women in a much broader stance. 

JENNIFER WEINER delivers an interesting, engaging and beautifully written story here that was easily one of the most important, entertaining, and memorable books that I will ever read. This being my very first JENNIFER WEINER novel I was thoroughly impressed with how easily she was able to instill such an important message in her storytelling. I felt that the novel at times was quite deep but so worth spending the time with these two sisters. It was definitely a heartfelt story that was so heartwarming and felt perfectly complete in the end. 

Norma’s Stats:
Cover: I love the look and feel to this cover and think that it is such a bold, striking, meaningful and fitting representation to storyline. 
Title: Intriguing, thought-provoking, relevant, and a fabulous representation to storyline. 
Writing/Prose: Engaging, effective, effortless, readable, beautiful, and well-written. 
Plot: Steadily-paced, relatable, interesting, thought-provoking, touching, hopeful, heartfelt and powerful. 
Ending: An impactful and bittersweet ending that moved me and left me feeling that I read something really special here.
Overall: This was not a quick and easy book for me to read as it was quite deep, emotional, and raw. It is one to savour! Would recommend!

Thank you so much to Simon & Schuster Canada and Jennifer Weiner for my complimentary copy.
