Book review of Younger

I picked the book after watching the season 1 of the TV show of the same name. I kept visualizing the actors while I read it. Though there are few minor differences between the show and the book, I somehow liked the show better.

The novel goes to view the issues related to ageism and sexism apparently. <a href=”https://elgeewrites.com/book-review-when-dimple-met-rishi/“>It is a light read</a> and definitely dated, but not your normal chicklit.

But I felt the characters were not developed to their fullest and that is where I liked the show better. I should accept I did not put the book down till I finished it (thankfully it was mere 300 odd pages), though more for waiting it to end than for the story.

Bottom line

You should definitely pick Younger by Pamela Redmond Satran up if you are looking for an easy read for your book club. Perfect for a beach read on breezy summer days.
