Book Review – Floored by Sara Barnard, Holly Bourne, Tanya Byrne, Non Pratt, Melinda Salisbury, Lisa Williamson and Eleanor Wood

flooredWhen they got in the lift, they were strangers (though didn’t that guy used to be on TV?): Sasha, who is desperately trying to deliver a parcel; Hugo, who knows he’s the best-looking guy in the lift and is eyeing up Velvet, who knows what that look means when you hear her name and it doesn’t match the way she looks, or the way she talks; Dawson, who was on TV, but isn’t as good-looking as he was a few years ago and is desperately hoping no one recognizes him; Kaitlyn, who’s losing her sight but won’t admit it, and who used to have a poster of Dawson on her bedroom wall, and Joe, who shouldn’t be here at all, but who wants to be here the most.

And one more person, who will bring them together again on the same day every year.

I received this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

I had a sampler for this and really liked the concept. And the way it’s written is different and fun. I really enjoyed the catching up year by year.

However having a largish main cast and large gaps in the narrative means we don’t get to spend a lot of time getting to know them. This is actually handled very well by the authors, but I just couldn’t quite connect with them as much as I wanted.

I did really enjoy it, but nothing jumped out at me as a “love” so I’m giving it 3.5 stars.
