Life seems "picture perfect" for Army veteran Pauline Parril--a solid career, a loving (though slightly absent) husband, two adorable young children. Perfect that is, until the usual Friday meeting at the office ends with a termination letter.
As Pauline navigates the difficulties of unemployment, she finds the handles of her world turning upside down. Her estranged daughter, Serenity, returns home with shocking secrets. Her husband, Donald, is not at all who she knows him to be, and a handsome stranger opens her eyes to the complex worlds of poetry and temptation. In this uproarious female comedy of just how one event can change the course of...well everything. The Perils of Pauline follows an intrepid every-woman as she marches through the pressures of building the "perfect life," finding there's actually more to discover about yourself than you dreamed, and constantly answering the scariest question of adulthood: "What now?"
Do not, I repeat do not, read Perils of Pauline during a somber moment. You will laugh out loud. People will wonder what in the world you keep chuckling to yourself about. Yeah, it's that funny.
Pauline, the main character, is the kind of gal I can imagine I'd want to know. She's real and relatable. And her banter is hilarious. She's thrown in life situations that might make the everyday person shudder, but she trudges on. Her pregnant lesbian daughter and possibly wayward husband are just a couple of life events that she has to face head on. Pauline is a hot mess and she keeps it real.
Some of the incidents within the book could possibly offend the reader. That is, if talk of vibrators and the like aren't up your alley. Personally, I thought the book was playful and comedic. I hope author, Collette Yvonne, continues to write books like this, where the characters are engaging and take life with lightness.
