review: finding audrey


“But, Audrey, that's what life is. We're all on a jagged graph. I know I am. Up a bit, down a bit. That's life.” ― Sophie Kinsella, Finding Audrey



Meet the worst book about anxiety disorder.

Wait! Don't leave yet! I'm not done yet with this terrible book! I must say that this is going to more of a rant then a review but my review is still worth reading. 

Anyway.

Finding Audrey is about well... Audrey. Audrey is a fourteen-year-old girl and has quite some sarcasm [personal note: I love sarcasm] for a girl with anxiety disorder. Anxiety is the main topic in the book and ... it's basically a joke in Finding Audrey. I'm not kidding. Her family thinks that Audrey is perfectly fine like a without anxiety... but she does have anxiety! Her family is a mess. Let's talk about them.


Audrey's mother is insane. Her mom follows and based her life on a stupid magazine and quit her job for Audrey, which does make sense if you helped and care for your daughter?! She has an anxiety disorder! Her father is a idiot and scared of his wife. Frank, Audrey's older brother, thinks that everything is fine and the youngest brother Felix, is kicked to the side. Audrey's family is a big drama show. 



I don't think Sophie Kinsella did her research right with anxiety disorder... did she even do research? Finding Audrey is comedy and drama show about anxiety disorder. I didn't even understand the point, what is so hilarious about anxiety? 

My final thoughts are...

Finding Audrey is trash.
 If you want a book about real anxiety and isn't a comedy, read FangirlThe Unlikely Hero of Room 13B or The Rest of Us Just Live Here.

Thank you so much for reading my review!

  1. I read Finding Audrey as well, and though I did laugh at some of the humor, I thought that the family was overly dramatized, and crazy. I also do not think that humor should have been mixed with anxiety, and the anxiety present in the book didn't seem very realistic.

    1. I may of laughed at some of the humor, Frank was quite funny. I agree with you, anxiety and humor do not work well together. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. I absolutely despised this book. It was funny at times but as a person who has family members with anxiety disorder, this was not a good book. It made fun of anxiety and like you said, I think the author didn't do her research right. I was thoroughly disappointed with this book.

    Lovely review, I adored the pictures!!
