Free download I Can't Think Straight æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Be true to herself Moving between the vast enclaves of Middle Eastern high society and the stunning backdrop of London's West End I Can't Think Straight explores the clashes between East and West love and marriage conventions and individuality creating a humorous and tender story of unexpected love and unusual freedo. Oh dear We seem to have picked a far from great book for book club this month It wasn t offensively bad but the writing was inelegant and the story didn t really seem to have anything to say The author also commited the cardinal sin of flitting from one character s head to another from one paragraph to the next possibly my number one peeve in bad writingSeemed like it wouldn t make a bad film though so perhaps it s worth tracking that down

On the one hand I want to flail and scream about this book because I enjoyed it so much and on the other I want to shake whoever edited it It is BRILLIANT FUN There s rich jetsetting Palestinian Tala in Amman on her fourth engagement and middle class British Indian Leyla who works in her dad s insurance company but wants to be a writer They meet they fall hard both have to come to terms with their sexuality and also with the different cultural pressures It s an ensemble piece where the heroines spend time apart than together There is a big and beautifully drawn cast the girls husbands to be who are both lovely and thus not plot drivers satisfyingly this is primarily a book about the ways women interact their gaggle of sisters of varying personalities and especially the mothers who are a study in compare and contrast Tala s mother in particular is a monstrous creation of pride and selfishness and her comeuppance is small but long led up to and perfect It s hugely readable fantastic storytelling with a lovely soap opera compulsive reading uality and a lovely glow of hope Also absolutely hilarious at points I laughed out loud Not subtle perhaps but with good if loudly made points about internalised homophobia and misogyny and cultural oppression Tala s sister married to a domineering man uietly starving herself And all of the above goes double because it is not entirely easy for the reader to follow the book I have never seen headhopping like it in my life there s paragraphs where we switch viewpoint three times and in the Kobo version at least there are no scene or line breaks so you read a paragraph about Leyla in London move to the next and discover we re with Tala in Jordan a month later without any indication of a scene change It is a huge testament to the book s intense readability that this didn t cause me to hurl it across the room I enjoyed it wildly if I shelve a book as soap that is high praise but an editor who understands why point of view matters and a decent ebook formatter would make a huge difference to the reading experience
