SATISFACTION: A NOVEL
by Andee Reilly
Man, I really wanted to love this one. Throwing everything out the window and following your favorite band around the country? That’s right up my alley. The book, however, was not.
It never really took off. Ginny is supposed to be a young woman who leaves her husband but she’s written as more of a middle-aged housewife who hasn’t been single in a couple decades. Bree, the older free spirit Ginny meets along the way, is written like a seventeen year old with wild oats to sow. The friendship didn’t really work for me, nor did the obsession with the band. I fully understand being obsessed with a band, one that soothes you when you need soothing, inspires you when need inspiration, and knocks you off your feet when you need it. It wasn’t for lack of trying, the author gave a valiant effort. It just didn’t connect for me. I’m sure this one will find the right reader and that reader will fall in love with it as they identify with Ginny or Bree and their journey.
