I instantly liked this book, just from the title. ‘A Mother Dimension’* was such an obvious, but pleasing play on words that it instantly warmed me to the book and to the author. Whenever I write I find it Very hard to write titles and when I used to write stories for uni the names were simply awful because it’s such a weakness of mine. For someone to have something so basic but also still a bit clever, well it’s the kind of thing that makes me smile.
I think it’s safe to say that the title gives you a little insight in to what the book is going to be about, and it’s not deceptive at all ‘A Mother Dimension’ is a perfect title – The story is about a wife and mother who’s at a point in her life where she’s feeling a real slump. She’s not got that buzz anymore, she’s not even sure what lust for her husband feels like and getting drunk with her best friend is a much bigger highlight than it should be. She loves her husband, and her children, but she also spends a large amount of time daydreaming about her past, when she was a young, successful type who worked in media and had a laddish, attractive boyfriend.
Honestly, I loved this book. It was light hearted but with some important messages included, it was funny and it was easy to read but it was also very clever and very well written. The characters weren’t always the easiest to love, but they were real and they were characters you wanted to know more about.
This isn’t a ‘type’ of book. The time travel aside it’s a pretty normal story about some normal people and their lives, their interactions and how they are traversing the dangers of their young, carefree years. I think most people would enjoy it, though it’s definitely more likely to fit the female demographic.
If you want to pick the book up then it’s available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mother-Dimension-Mink-Elliott-ebook/dp/B00GLTOJVK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1409001442&sr=8-1&keywords=a+mother+dimension
