popsugarreadingchallenge prompt 40: Your favorite prompt from a past POPSUGAR Reading Challenge –2019 – 6. A book with a plant in the title or on the cover.

Only a British author could possible write a book in which the only character every other character is connected to is in a coma the entire book.
Sylvia is unconscious in a hospital bed as all the other characters come in and out of the room, slowly revealing their story with her. Misunderstandings are revealed and their repercussions laid bare as this complicated life is unpicked through her experiences with others.

Despite the rather dour setting and circumstances of the book, French still manages to make it wry, funny and poignant.
I like the narrative technique used and was completely absorbed in all the threads of Sylvia’s life.

Worth reading -and I’ll read more of French in the future.
