Book Review

Review: Olive by Emma Gannon

When I started this book, I worried that it and I just weren't going to get along. Despite being 30+, and going through some stuff, Olive can come across as immature and self-centred. And the opening scene, with four giddy girls leaving university and dramatically screaming and sobbing all over each other did not sit well with me. However, thankfully, there was a lot more going on in these pages, which managed, in a non-judgemental way, to raise good questions about having children and whether you even need an obvious reason if you don't.
