The Infinite Wisdom of Harriet Rose

The Infinite Wisdom of Harriet Rose: My first “meh” review. Chick lit that tries to be deep.

It wasn’t a bad read, but it wasn’t a great one either. I like the idea that they’re trying to bring things like philosophy into a chick lit style. I liked that the character of Harriet Rose was very imperfect. But the style was very basic and the plot was sort of anti-climatic.

Favourite line:

“Heraclitus famously said that we cannot step into the same river twice. Everything, that is, is in constant change. Nothing remains the same. By the time I have reached the end of my talk to you, I shall be a different person from the one who began it.”

    I find the Mariane Keyes does good chick lit, and they have decent depth (for chick lit)
