Oh Dear Silvia by Dawn French

This was a really excellent read. The story was slightly more serious than what I would normally read, but it had me glued from the start. It was fascinating to hear all the different views of Silvia from her visitors, rather than herself. At the start, we are led to believe she is a horrible person, and she cannot defend herself (being in a coma, and all!) But as the story goes on, stories are revealed that show both Silvia and the other characters in a different light. Some of the revelations were a real shock, and kept me wanting to read more. Although the whole tone of the book was sad, there were some uplifting moments. The ending was just perfect, too. And the whole book was very well written. I give this book 10/10!
