The Unpredictability of Being Human by Linni Ingmundsen : Book Review

The Unpredictability of Being Human by Linne Ingmundsen was a heart warming read. Malin is a fourteen year old naive little lady, a round peg in a square hole, trying to fit in. Well, aren't we all? The plot was so relatable that it clicked with me at the very first chapter and I wonder how novels achieve such universal intelligibility?

The world changes to an adolescent's eye, as she is rendered capable of comprehending the darkness surrounding us. The innocence is slowly lost and thus our outlook changes as well! Malin's stupidities just remind me more of my own, and all the times I had ended up embarassing myself when I was about her age. ( I am glad that phase is over)

However, it might be a disappointment for people who look forward to read novels with a solid plot as it doesn't have one. It is a peep into Malin's little world and as I have learnt to accept that fact, the novel came across as a pleasing one.

Ingmundsen has a beautiful writing style which is easy to comprehend, that makes me very pleased because I like to make my sister read such books as she is about to be a teenager soon!

I read the book during Christmas and it was such a soothing feel to cuddle up with a pretty book under a blanket with a mug of hot chocolate, and Elvis Presley playing in the background. Totally recommended vibes that perfectly complement the book!
