Product description

Review

This is the calling card of a virtuoso talent, a thrilling millennial spin on the 19th-century novel of manners that may call to mind another recent literary sensation. I had thought of ending this review by predicting that Kiley Reid may be the next Sally Rooney. But Such a Fun Age is so fresh and essential that I predict instead that next year we'll be anxiously awaiting the next Kiley Reid (Guardian)

What a joy to find a debut novel so good that it leaves you looking forward to the rest of its author's career . . . A tantalisingly plotted tale about the way we live now . . . Such a Fun Age speaks for itself; I suspect it will turn its writer into a star (The Times)

Will fire off a million debates . . . The pages sing with charisma and humour (Sunday Times)

Razor-sharp . . . Reid writes with a confidence and verve that produce magnetic prose . . . A cracking debut - charming, authentic and every bit as entertaining as it is calmly, intelligently damning (Observer)

Smart, fast-paced and beautifully observed, Reid tackles timely themes around race and political correctness with wit and verve (Mail on Sunday)

Witty and incisive . . . What Kiley Reid's debut novel delivers is a more compelling indictment of humans, of how we interact with ourselves and each other, than most writers could muster . . . A dazzlingly clear-eyed study of relationships: between partners, mothers and daughters, peers and friends (Financial Times)

I LOVED this extraordinarily deft debut, written with wisdom, kindness and sharp humour . . . Clever, compelling and beautifully written (Daily Mail)

Marks the arrival of a serious new talent (i)

A voice to watch . . . A smart, witty debut that smuggles sharp points about racial blindness, privilege and the gig economy inside a zesty comedy of manners (Metro)

One of the most buzzed-about books of 2020 - and for good reason . . . Brilliant at capturing relationships, as well as the obliviousness of white privilege. Smart, punchy, well-paced and with an irresistible twist (Elle) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings with this one :s
By Delilah on 16 August 2020
How cute is the cover of the book. I guarantee you’ll be drawn to this book right from the start. This book is divided into 4 parts and the first two are freakin’ riveting. Somehow, as it goes on from there, the excitement kinda dies down. Atleast that’s what happened to me.
At the end I had mixed feelings because the book really began well for me but ended dully. I didn’t really understand what the hype was about.
That being said this is just MY personal opinion. Maybe I didn’t grasp just what this book was trying to relay. I guess this is one of those circumstances where everyone had positive reviews whilst it did nothing for me. Maybe I had high expectations from this book since it was talked about so much.
A small part of me is disappointed but then there were certain plot twists in there that I was unprepared for so, mixed feelings it is !
