Unexpected. Maria Semple’s writing often makes me laugh. She has a way of observing contemporary life and presenting it to us with great skill and a gentle skewering of our first world problems. In the novel titled, Today Will Be Different, protagonist Eleanor Flood wants to make some changes in her life. She begins with a plan, but things don’t work out as planned. Partway through the novel there’s a shift from Eleanor’s point of view to a third person narrator and what happens from that point forward was unexpected. Read a sample of Semple’s writing. If you smile from a sample, chances are you’ll be entertained by the entire novel.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
