Three Things About Elsie by Joanna Cannon
This is a lovely book about Florence, 84 yrs old and living in sheltered accommodation. She doesn’t enjoy taking part it any arranged activities within the home and likes to keep herself to herself. It is an easy, quick read but one which is also deep and poignant. I loved the way the book combined a mystery with a story about real human experience and meaning.
I enjoyed the way her friend Elsie was included in the narration and the way the mystery of the new resident was told along side the story of the characters within the book.
A beautifully written book about human nature, memory, old age and of being alone.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
