The Post-Birthday World: A Novel by Lionel Shriver
The Post-Birthday World: A Novel

TruBlu, May 23, 2008

I didn't like Irina McGovern. She drifts through both 'worlds' without guilt, remorse, or any real depth of any emotion. In both worlds she's a rather shallow 'little wife' figure, dependent on her men for both her finances and physical gratification, while emotionally remaining a closed book to both. Yes, she is incredibly narcissistic....


Lionel Shriver is a truly brilliant writer!! Despite disliking the main character so much, I was compelled to find out what happended to her. The story is steeped in cliches of chick lit aspirations, but it's what Shriver does not comment upon that really makes you think. Excellent example of a writer who really knows how to have a proper dialogue with her readers. I loved it and hated it in equal measure :-)
