Emma Jane Unsworth · 6 REVIEW FREE READ ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB · Emma Jane Unsworth REVIEW Adults By Emma Jane Unsworth ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ak up with her• she's so frazzled trying to keep up with everything you can practically hear her nerves jangling• she spends all day online stalking women with beautiful lives as her career goes down the drainAnd now her mother has appeared on her doorstep unbidden to save the dayIs Jenny ready to. Emma Jane Unsworth s breakout novel Animals featured two main characters Laura and Tyler and as with Zoes and Zeldas you re either one or the other I m definitely a Laura and Animals was powerfully resonant for me partly because of that Adults on the other hand is narrated by the euivalent of a Tyler Jenny a loud selfish character whose brashness is often a mask for uncertainty or loneliness The opening scene sets the tone as Jenny obsesses about how to caption a photo on Instagram I am creating a social media post about a croissant that I am pretty sure will define me as a human Adults follows Jenny as she stumbles through life trying to get over her ex boyfriend Art and thinking about her personal brand every five seconds She s 35 so we re at the very tail end of the millennial woman figuring herself out thing here and that s kind of the point This book s Laura Jenny s reasonable friend Kelly is often relegated to the background We hear from her when she texts Jenny pleas that often go unanswered or when Jenny needs to bounce something off her Like an email to Art or yet another Instagram caption The important relationship here is between Jenny and her eccentric mother Carmen a flighty and often neglectful fortune teller who swoops in and out of Jenny s life and it uickly becomes clear is responsible for a lot of her neurosesThere s of a chick lit vibe here than in Animals If I hadn t known who d written it I d have guessed Lisa Owens Not Working or Lauren Berry Living the Dream Jenny s narration is sparky and entertaining and pretty exhausting too I read the book uickly not because I was loving it but because spending time with Jenny felt detrimental She s a solipsistic and arrogant character who s hard to like even when her insecurities are laid bare The very current tone of the satire doesn t really help some of it already seems dated especially the bits about the online women s magazine Jenny writes for I did like the ending and Jenny s various relationships are all wrapped up in ways that feel both satisfying and plausibleI read Animals three years ago There are lines and moments from that book I still think about regularly I don t think I will remember the details of Adults beyond the next couple of weeks I don t mean to be harsh it s enjoyable I guess it just didn t really speak to me There s too much gloss and not enough gritI received an advance review copy of Adults from the publisher through NetGalleyTinyLetter
