Where'd you go Bernadette

Recently I was recommended to read Where'd you go Bernadette. Although I had previously been intrigued by the book cover which was popping up on adverts all over London, I never actually ended up buying it. Well, now I am glad I did. It is a little silly at times, but perfectly witty all the way through with some great humour, both light and a little more intellectual. It's the perfect holiday or travel read as it's entertaining, not too heavy and a good laugh. If you do read this book and turn out liking it, I would recommend these as well.


Bernadette Fox is notorious. To Elgie Branch, a Microsoft wunderkind, she's his hilarious, volatile, talented, troubled wife. To fellow mothers at the school gate, she's a menace. To design experts, she's a revolutionary architect. And to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, quite simply, mum.
Then Bernadette disappears. And Bee must take a trip to the end of the earth to find her.
WHERE'D YOU GO, BERNADETTE is a compulsively readable, irresistibly written, deeply touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's place in the world.
