Where Rainbows End would not normally be my go to book. However, the power of social media and a simple Facebook status. A friend had posted about starting a book club, the idea was simple. She messaged me an address of who to send a book of my choice to. I then posted the same status and got 2 books for the price of one, Where Rainbows End and A Perfectly Good Man. Reading an actual book, as opposed to on my kindle was a refreshing change.
The entire book was written in message form, be it letters, e-mails or instant messaging as the years progressed. Initially this was slightly odd, as it wasn’t what I had expected, but it grew on me. Especially since a lot of communication in this era, is via messages or texts. The plot of the book was simple, and a perfect read for this time of year when it’s all a bit hectic. Aka, I could follow along in a busy coffee shop or at home, with no real trouble.Where Rainbows End centers around two childhood best friend, Alex and Rosie and how their relationship changes over the years. From the first loves as teenagers, to marriages, babies and all the job woes in between. Where Rainbows End was written back in 2004, which was surprising when I looked at the publication details, as much of the content was still so relevant.
