Review

[An] engrossing and whip-smart modern epistolary novel...--Stephan Lee, Entertainment Weekly

[A] clever story of family dysfunction.--Dailycandy

[A] cracklingly smart family dramedy.... [I was] stunned and transported by this extraordinarily powerful and intelligent novel.--Lev Grossman, Time

[A] dazzling satire.... One of 2012's most hilarious books.--The Brooklyn Eagle

[A] romp of a novel.... Semple...nail[s] Seattle's idiosyncrasies in wickedly funny send-ups.--Barbara Lloyd McMichael, The Bellingham Herald

A comedic delight...--Family Circle

A hilarious, nasty, heartfelt satire about parenting, privilege, genius, resilience and life in Seattle.--Gillian Flynn on Today

A lovely story of a creative lull.--Jessa Crispin, Architect Magazine

A powerful mosaic of mental illness, artistic temperament, and family melodrama.... Semple's background in television and comedy... provide[s] the foundation for this subversively funny novel and its all-too-rare blend of humor and heart.... In a time when everything is a version of something else, how extraordinary-and exciting-to read a novel that subverts conventions to create an experience that feels so fresh.--Jeremy Medina, The L Magazine

A quirky comic masterpiece...about an irresistibly precocious teen and her awesomely agoraphobic mom.... BERNADETTE is an ingenious, enjoyable, continually surprising farce.--David Hiltbrand, The Philadelphia Inquirer --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Review

It's intelligent but easy to read; eccentric but never twee. * ELLE UK * --This text refers to the digital edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Bernadette!
By Kirsten Jocumsen on 12 November 2020
I just loved Bernadette the book and the character. The final chapter was the best ending of a book I've read in a very long time! So funny and well written.
