Looking for a quirky novel? This is it! I had no idea where the author was going at any time. I got a kick out of Bernadette Fox, socially offbeat genius, former famous architect, mother of 8th grader Bee, and wife of Elgin Branch, a Microsoft genius. Bee’s excellent grades are rewarded with Bee’s fondest desire ... a trip to Antarctica. Then Bernadette disappears. Where’d you go, Bernadette? Fun book!

What a gem! This fast-paced, hilarious read is told from multiple perspectives and through multiple media, from emails to letters to newspaper articles. Semple’s off-kilter Bernadette is both maddening and admirable, but it is daughter Bee who is sure to win your heart. Despite the prevalence of the South Pole in the story, this book is the perfect treat to warm your heart this winter.

I usually avoid books written in letters, or, these days in letters, emails and texts. This book had quite a bit of buzz though so I decided to try it. Even though the disjointed format bothered me it was not too distracting. At first the book is just funny with some eccentric and sort of manic characters. Then it gets kind of serious and there was a downtime in the middle where I almost set it aside. Then, some of the characters changed and it became more like a regular novel. The only thing I didn’t like was this story perpetuates the myth that geniuses are always strange and eccentric.
