Not Sleeping

Josh and Claudia have been dealt with their fair share of bad cards in life as a married couple.

Coming to terms with being parents is always difficult enough  without the added complications of a child with extra needs or a disability.

This novel Centers around Josh mostly, and his way of dealing with a failed marriage.

The opening pages were written brilliantly and almost humorous behind the obvious distress of Josh desperately trying to cope with Amy, his 9 year old autistic daughter.

This style of writing doesn’t carry on unfortunately, it becomes more about Josh and his work life. Here we see a different side to his character, and while this is interesting and probably true to life in similar cases, I would have enjoyed more scenes where Josh is tested with Amy and her special unique endearing ways.

Claudia is moving on with life as she sees fit, her side of the story didn’t bring much in my opinion. I did enjoy the Josh chapters more for certain. That’s not to say I liked him, because most of the time, I really didn’t.

Left me with questions, not a bad thing at all. Questions are good, shows my interest was peaqued.

What I will say, is that the book feels like, it knows something the reader doesn’t. Either that,  Or I totaly missed something along the way  may be this is intentional- who knows.
