MAYBE IN ANOTHER LIFE by TAYLOR JENKINS REID
If you enjoyed the 1998 film, Sliding Doors, which starred Gwyneth Paltrow and John Hannah (fyi watching this in the cinema was the first date that hubby and I ever went on 😉 then you will LOVE Taylor Jenkins Reid’s MAYBE IN ANOTHER LIFE.
Revolving around the hectic, cinnamon roll-loving life of main character, Hannah, the book takes place in two, parallel universes which branch off in two different directions within the first couple of chapters.
Each chapter juxtaposes between two very different paths based on Hannah’s decision at the start of the book and, I have to say it was super strange because, although I really liked one certain character on one of the paths she chose, I really didn’t like him at all in the other ‘universe’, yet I couldn’t work out exactly why or how the author had taken the exact same character yet extracted opposing emotions in me, even though she hadn’t actually written him any different in either situation……?
This was my first book by this author but it DEFINITELY won’t be my last! I’ve already added another three of her books to my wishlist and I imagine they’re going to be bumped right up to the top of my TBR!
