Roar by Cecelia Ahern

Escape with these uplifting short stories from bestseller Cecelia Ahern



I am woman. Hear me roar.

Have you ever imagined a different life?
Have you ever stood at a crossroads, undecided?
Have you ever had a moment when you wanted to roar?

The women in these startlingly original stories are all of us: the women who befriend us, the women who encourage us, the women who make us brave.

From The Woman Who Slowly Disappeared to The Woman Who Was Kept on the Shelf and The Woman Who Returned and Exchanged her Husband, discover thirty touching, often hilarious, stories and meet thirty very different women. Each discovers her strength; each realizes she holds the power to make a change.

Witty, tender, surprising, these keenly observed tales speak to us all, and capture the moment when we all want to roar.

MOMO’s REVIEW                   

Roar is collection of thirty short stories, each telling the tale of a woman dealing with challenges.  It is a quirky book, with wide ranging appeal,  that tells the stories in such a way to make you laugh, cry but mostly think…… and then think some more. 

I believe the type of stories here will have readers viewing them from their individual perspective – friends may get something totally different to you from reading the same story.  For instance I could identify with some whereas others were not quite my style whereas others who have read this book feel differently.  That is what reading is all about after all. We all delve into a book to get our own little piece of another world….

Overall the book is very well written and enjoyable.   I would recommend this to friends who enjoy short stories rather than full length novels. Due to this being short stories I missed the gripping urgency I enjoy when reading a book and need to know what happens…. I kinda missed that feeling with this one.

Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review this collection.
