Distorted Days by Louise Worthington REVIEW

Distorted Days
by Louise Worthington


If she could speak to them, she would say they have exploded her heart, released firecrackers through her senses. She wishes she could call the police, the ambulance, the fire brigade, to arrest and anaesthetise and waterboard the bastards.

So what happens when your husband runs off with your best friend? When you discover the dead body of an old man halfway through your delivery round? When your house is burgled and you get beaten up? Doris, Andy and Colleen are about to find out. They’re also about to discover that you can find friendship and support in the oddest of places…

Heart-rending, humorous and above all authentic, Distorted Days is an exquisitely written account of the ways in which life can knock you off our feet – and how you can pick yourself up again. If you’ve experienced the fickleness of fortune, this is a book that you’ll never forget.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own.

Doris is left on her own after her husband leaves her after having an affair with her best friend. When our story opens Doris is currently living in the house she and her soon-to-be ex-husband have shred. She signed a prenup before their wedding so unfortunately, the house is his and he's decided to sell it leaving Doris to figure things out on her own. 

I really enjoyed this book. Doris was easy to like and sympathize with.  The biggest growth comes at the end of the story which had me clapping for Doris. I won't get into too much detail because I don't want to spoil it, but it's a really good ending. Her friends are a great cast of supporting characters that really helped bring the story to life. The writing itself was interesting. I was drawn into the story and enjoyed every minute of it. It's a great book about picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and moving on.

Overall, it's an enjoyable read. I recommend this for anyone who likes short books, stories about moving on and stories about growth. I would read this author again.
