Gravity Is the ThingK It’s an opportunity too intriguing to refuse If Everything is Connected then surely the twin mysteries of the Guidebook and a missing brother must be linkedWhat follows is completely the opposite of what Abi expected––but it will lead her on a journey of discovery that will change her life––and enchant readers Gravity Is the Thing is a smart unusual wickedly funny novel about the search for happiness that will break your heart into a million pieces and put it back together bigger and better than before 4 starsWhat a lovely lovely novelWell I need to back up The first 10% seemed completely hokey but then the story shifts and the beginning made sense and I fell in love with this novel and its narrator and I gobbled it up The story is told by Abi who at 37 is a single mother with than her share of sadness in her past But since she was 16 years old she had been receiving unsolicited chapters of a uirky self help book in the mail Now she is called to attend a reunion of all the other people who had been receiving chapters from the book Hokey see But there's far to the story than this unpromising beginning Abi is funny sad and introspective and the whole story is written from her lovely point of view The beginning of Abi's sadness was the disappearance of her brother when she turned 16 which is a mystery and ache than permeate the whole novel And the puzzling chapters and their provenance morph into a lovely subplot of human connections I'm trying to say enough without saying much because this is a lovely reading experience to be savoured as you go This novel is human philosophical sad and funny but it doesn't take itself too seriouslyThanks to Goodreads friend Bianca for bringing this one to my attention And thanks for Edelweiss for giving me access to an advance copy
