And then Bernadette disappears This is a strange story told in an unique way. It's told by Bee with the help of emails, letters from school personnel, police reports, medical reports, invoices, etc. This book is satirical; certainly not a book anchored in "everyday life" realism.
Of course you can say that about every book ever published, but that goes double here. I would've given up on it if not for a reading buddy who pushed me to stick it out. The characters are not likable in the beginning or understandable , especially Bernadette.
But once I got through the first quarter, I was invested in the story. And when I reached the last page, I realized wisps of Bee, Bernadette, and Elgin have been written in my memory bank with a permanent marker. They'll fade, but never completely leave. Can't possibly give this less than 4 stars. Thank goodness I picked this book back up after not liking the Kindle sample a couple of years ago.
So many others loved the book that I gave it another try. I'm so glad I didn't miss this highly entertaining, funny, poignant, and remarkably original work. There are so many layers here, and my review will not do it justice. It is a screamingly funny and intelligent satire of the wealthy, bright, but eccentric "Microsoft executive types" in Seattle. A review on site got it just right: Bernadette's disappearance sends Bee and her father on a poignant, intense, and globe-trotting search, during which they uncover much about themselves and about the power of love and the importance of being true to one's self.
Paperback Verified download. In a nutshell, this is a book that begs the reader to not take it seriously, and just simply enjoy the amusement park ride that it is. This was recommended to me because it was "quirky and fun". I learned the author had written for a few quirky comedy television shows, which helped me in setting my expectations before jumping in.
And just as anticipated, it reads like a screenplay for a fun quirky comedy. I really enjoyed this book - even though it wasn't remotely what I was expecting. Told through a series of narrators, with emails, letters, and texts, this is a tightly-woven contemporary epistolary novel. The primary narrator is Bee, telling the story from her perspective as a young teen daughter. Bernadette, her mother, is a former MacArthur genius award winning architect, who is missing.
The book is by turns hilarious and touching. It skewers helicopter parents, high tech, and Seattle.
It also focuses on mother-daughter relationships, family dynamics, and creativity. The main characters, including Elgin the father and husband, are unforgettable. This is a book that makes you feel good! For a time I lived around Cupertino, and I recognized many of the characters. I had the impression that the book would have continued in the vein would be. The 15 year old daughter matures in under an hour and all is right with the world.
The husband is sort of left out of the game plan. A quick read and flows well.
