Christine Reilly - Sunday's on the Phone to Monday
miss_mesmerizedvor 2 Jahren

Mathilde, a young actress, finds in Claudio, a record store manager, the love of her life. From the beginning it is clear that they will spend the rest of their days together and have a family. Two lovely daughters are born quickly and a third, adopted one, completes the family. Life could be perfect, but Claudio has a sister who has always struggled from her mental illnesses and Mathilde’s brother is gay and cannot have a family in the same way his sister does. When the girls get older, other problems arise and the biggest challenge for the family is set when the heart of one of the girls gets too weak to beat on.

I really liked reading Christine Reilly’s novel. Her characters are interestingly drawn, their problems are real and imaginable. The dialogues show liveliness and the overall tone of the novel is a great joy to read. However, when I finished the book, I was wondering what it was about. It is especially the relationships that could captivate and convince me, but considering it all, they were like touched and abandoned soon after. Mathilde and Claudio are a very interesting couple, so are Claudio and his sister Jane or Mathilde and her brother. Also the girls amongst themselves or with their boyfriends – so many good ideas which could have filled novels on their own. Of course, the novel as it is somehow complete, but it lacked a bit of focus. Nevertheless, a story which I can really recommend, especially if you are looking for something slightly sad.
