Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple is considered a "comedic novel" and I agree it is funny. I would also characterize it as a light mystery.
If you are a mom, the characters will be familiarly funny without being too deep or causing you to be overly reflective of your own life.
Overall this is a light read, extremely enjoyable and I highly recommend it.
A small synopsis of the story to wet your appetite -
Bernadette is a midlife mom, an award winning architect although in her "before baby" life. She is fiesty, quirky and disappears just before a family trip to Antartica is supposed to take place. The story is told by Bee, Bernadette's 15 year old daughter who is on a quest to figure out what happened!
What takes place is a story full of crazy twists and turns that are sure to make you laugh and keep turning the page to see what happens next. I don't want to give much more than that away.
This is a great vacation read, or weekend book. A wonderful beach book option that will keep you entertained while not draining your brain with overly heavy subject matter.
It is creative story telling. I love it!
