We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves

Karen Fowler We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves

Karen Joy Fowler

This novel provided the rare experience of knocking my socks off. Brilliant!

As I've recommended this book to friends, I have told them to avoid reading synopsis of the book or really anything that might give away the plot, including the inside jacket blurb. Go into it without preconceived ideas, I promise it is worth it.

Fowler's two previous novels were lightweights compared to We Are Completely Beside Ourselves. This book stands way above most modern fiction. Yep, it is a compelling, engaging story, but it is also a dynamic model of life and relationships.

We Are Completely Beside Ourselves tops my list for best books I've read in 2013.
