Enjoyable story

The Party Crasher

By: Sophie Kinsella

Rating: 4 of 5

I became hooked on Sophie Kinsella books, years ago, when I read “The Undomesticated Goddess.”

I enjoyed this most recent book, which centers on a family in crisis. So much could have been avoided if only they had been willing to talk to one another. However, like most people, they are not willing to do so.

In that sense, it is a snap shot of what is going on with so many individuals. The main character, Effie, is certainly one who keeps things to herself.

Effie has a knack for doing some crazy things and she does many in this story. It all centers on her going, stealthily, to a party her family is having in the old family home which has just been sold.

I laughed at her antics, but as the story progressed, there was a definite sense of pathos behind each of them.

I will be looking forward to reading more of Ms. Kinsella’s books in the future.
