Book Review: Our Doris by Charles Heathcote

It has been a long time since I posted a book review on my blog, but here is one that is truly worthy of sharing. I recently met some wonderful local authors at a library event that I attended, and now I would like to introduce you to Charles Heathcote

Our Doris is hilarious! I was hooked right from the first page, as I read about tales of marital woe, and bliss, as told by the long suffering husband, Harold. What I loved most about this book is the fact that I could relate entirely to all of the characters, because I saw them in older people from my own life throughout the years. If you need a comparison, I would say that Doris reminds me of Hyacinth Bucket from the television sitcom Keeping Up Appearances.

I chuckled and laughed all the way through this book, but there was a curious quirk that I developed. Doris Copeland is a very challenging woman to read about. I could only read one chapter at a time, because any more than that was just a bit too much for me to take in. That to me is a sign of bloody good writing.

5 stars all the way, and more!
