Summary

Is anyone’s life....

Beth shows that women really can have it all.

Ruby lives life by her own rules.

And then there’s Lauren, living the dream.

As perfect as it looks?

Beth hasn’t had sex in a year.

Ruby feels like she’s failing.

Lauren’s happiness is fake news.

And it just takes one shocking event to make the truth come tumbling out.... 

Fearless, frank and for everyone who’s ever doubted themselves, So Lucky is the straight-talking new novel from the Sunday Times best seller.

Actually, you’re pretty f--king lucky to be you.

Just seemed to miss the mark!

I had high hopes for this book as I loved The Cows however it feels like O'Porter is just trying to be shocking for the sake of it. The way in which some of her characters act and think just seem far fetched and ridiculous at times. I didn't hate the book completely but wouldn't recommend it! I like the style of the writing and always appreciate when authors give you multiple narrator's but I'm afraid I just didn't find it an entertaining book. If you listened to The Cows and were put off by the train scene (which I actually wasn't) then So Lucky won't be for you.

Very funny but poor quality audio and predictable

I loved Cows so was very excited to listen to So Lucky. It's very funny. The characters are super but the plot entirely predictable. The audio is quite poor quality and crackles when the chatacter read by Dawn speaks at high volume. I would say it's still worth a listen but no where near as good as Cows.

Flippin' Love this book

I am quite a harsh critic and it takes a lot for me to laugh out loud and cry but this audiobook had me in tears then laughter......combine this with a strong sense of womanhood. Amazing. I had to pull over into the services off the M4 for a coffee and a moment after Ruby faced her demons. Thank you Dawn.

I’m SO picky- this is magnificent!

I rarely write reviews, but this is the second time now (The Cows) that Dawn O’Porter has blown me away, delivering a delightful, insightful, joyous romp that I binged through in record time! I truly LOVE her work, her characters, her plots and shrewd take on modern womanhood. Magnificent!

Adored the book, SO LUCKY!

I’m an Instagram follower of Dawn’s and expected the book to be a bit sillier, based on the fun the has on her IG stories. The book was darker than I expected, but I liked the humor, nonetheless. I found the contemporary analysis of life as we live it, now, on modern social media quite revelatory, deep. “Well done, ya saucy minx,” I’d say, if I knew Dawn in person, which I do not, but feel like I do, and wish I did. #hugs
