How We Met (2013)

There are some people you can't imagine life without... This novel opens with the death of Liv who, in her late twenties, seems to have everything going for her. We follow the lives of her friends as they try to come to terms with her death whilst simultaneously trying to get on with their lives which is proving to be rather difficult. Fraser, Liv's boyfriend, is in a rebound relationship and filming Tena lady adverts. Mia is a single mother debating whether to take her son's father back. Melody and Norman are a couple in trouble and Anna is living her life through a new man each week. The characters in this book are quite hard to sympathise with, meaning ultimately you don't really care what happens to them and their actions are frustrating. There are situations that should be full of emotion however that doesn't come through leaving you feeling rather cold and cheated. However the message this book carries is an important one, it teaches you life is made for living and nothing should ever get in the way of your dreams and, at the end of the day, friendship is one of the most important things in life.
