Overview

Okay. This is it. I am going to kill myself ... After a suicide attempt goes hilariously awry Abigail Carter PhD candidate and owner of a gorgeous little kitten named Cedric finds herself stuck with her very own blog. Before long, Abigail finds herself blogging all about her everyday life; phone calls from the future mother-in-law from hell, visiting a murderous aunt in prison, being stalked by her ex-boyfriend turned cop and the reappearance of Chastity MacKenzie, the girl responsible for her expulsion from boarding school many years before. And when Chastity makes a play for Samuel, Abigail's fiance of five years, Abigail realises that it is going to take a lot more than keeping a blog to sort this mess out...

Dark and occasionally laugh out loud funny, Being Abigail features a truly unforgettable heroine and a reminder that sometimes the best things in life happen when you're on your way somewhere else.

    Attitude-full, worthwhile read!

    Review:

    Abigail's unique personality was evident from page one, and was a riot of enjoyment every page thereafter. I loved her character, her back-and-forth mood swings, her intelligent, yet crude, language, and the way she approached every situation, from cats and family members, to mortal enemies, etc. I also liked Abigail's relationship with Samuel; they played off of each other flawlessly even though they sometimes seemed like polar opposites. Their dispositions were very realistic and easy-to-relate to, often causing me to shake my head, laugh out loud, or cuss a blue streak right along with them. The book is based on Australian author Kathryn White's blog, and is formatted as a collection of time-ordered blog entries, each delving in to Abigail's thoughts and feelings about her ever-changing state of mind. I enjoyed reading the diary-esque entries which added to the overall tone and made the novel feel more modern. The pacing was not as steady as I am used to, but I felt that it went along with the flow of the plot-line, especially since Abigail herself was unsteady about the future. I always enjoy reading books where I learn new vocabulary, and I definitely got an earful from Being Abigail, particularly her definitions of skank and wanker (not what you'd think...). The only problems I saw were with grammar, and they did not take away from the novel's readability. Overall, well-developed characters, believable scenarios, and a plot full of attitude make this book a worthwhile and fun read!

    Rating: On the Run (4/5)

    *** I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
