Jennifer Brown’s Journey is an extremely fun, hilarious, heartfelt, incredible read that reminds me of Bridget Jones Diary and has captivated me and made me fall in love with reading all over again. It is a wonderful book which was a welcome change from my usual heavy reads! These kind of novels are so incredible to me because they are so fun and enjoyable! It is a novel I raced through because I was obsessed with the story. Here is a little bit more about this wonderful book!
This novel is a character study and so I cannot talk about the synopsis without talking about our protagonist, Jennifer Brown. Jennifer is your ordinary, average woman; she is stuck in a job that she detests and she is bored with her daily routine. Jennifer somewhat is having a mid-life crisis, she feels she is the only one growing old and she wants to move on from the job that she hates and this is where our novel begins. We then follow Jennifer on her journey from one exciting job to another all whilst the reader is accompanied by her and her witty humour!
The life of Jennifer Brown is an entertaining one, she is a brilliant character and so she carries the book along perfectly. As we join her journey we enjoy many juicy plots and many funny ones! This is all thanks to our author Angie Langley. Langley has done a great job at writing a book that is the perfect respite from readers everyday dark read. She has wrote a light-hearted, brilliant, witty novel that has a fun, humorous atmosphere around it. What I loved more than anything about Langley’s writing is that she managed so make all of her characters feel real, they are the kind of characters everybody knows and so it made this reading experience really enjoyable for me.
To summarise my thoughts on this enchanting novel I would say if you are looking for a captivating read that will make you laugh out loud as well as make your heart soar then this is the book for you! This incredible novel gets Four Stars from me!
