So Lucky: #bookreview

cover133608-medium

So Lucky by Nicola Griffith is a little bit autobiographical but not completely. The author and the main character, Mara Taragelli, are both lesbians who have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. The author and the character also have an interest in martial arts. The book is still considered fiction.

Mara is in charge of a successful AIDS foundation when she is diagnosed with MS. Her ex-girlfriend has left her. Her current girlfriend leaves the country for a job. Mara works and tries to maintain her hobbies- martial arts and kayaking- until she is physically unable to do so. The board at the AIDS foundation decides to replace her. Things are not going her way at all.

Mara is not very good at being inactive. So she starts a charitable group for MS patients. After she starts the group, terrible things begin happening to members of the group. Mara believes that her group is the link to the events. Everyone thinks that it’s just a coincidence. What is really going on with the group members? I can’t tell you because I don’t want to spoil the book.

It’s an interesting book and completely worth reading. The main character, Mara, can be infuriating to those around her but she never gives up.  I would give it 4.5 stars out of 5 stars.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
