Pretty entertaining book about three best friends who, when forgotten by their sons on Mother s Day, each make an unannounced stay for one week with their son, in order to find out what their life away from home has become. (((FREE))) ↴ Otherhood ☞ In this witty novel originally published as Whatever Makes You Happy that inspired Netflix s major motion picture Otherhood, three mothers try to save their grown sons from themselvesGillian, Helen, and Carol are three suburban mothers who have known each other since their respective sons were babies, and have met in a regular coffee group for years These days, their sons are a bunch of thirty four year old slackers they have no wives and no children, never call, and seem unlikely to outgrow their post adolescent lifestyles anytime soon After yet another fruitless Mother s Day, Carol has an outlandish but irresistible idea each woman will go drop in on her son for an unexpected weeklong visit and find out what s really keeping him from responsible adult life Together, and with mixed success, the mothers set out to whip their sons into shapeLaugh out loud funny and remarkably insightful about family life, Otherhood will appeal to parents who yearn for a closer relationship with their adult children, and for the younger generation who seem to want the opposite, but will never quite relinquish the hope that their parents will swoop in and make everything better I really liked Are you experienced and I still think Sutcliffe can write witty and intelligent novels But this one is disappointing All people involved in this story three mothers and three sons, and some younger women seem to be reduced to one problem character Though they are not stupid they all behave as if they were driven by only this feature with the effect that you don t see REAL persons but only examples for certain patterns One son is gay he seems to be only gay, nothingI really liked Are you experienced and I still think Sutcliffe can write witty and intelligent novels But this one is disappointing All people involved in this story three mothers and three sons, and some younger women seem to be reduced to one problem character Though they are not stupid they all behave as if they were driven by only this feature with the effect that you don t see REAL persons but only examples for certain patterns One son is gay he seems to be only gay, nothing, one is successful but in the wrong branch , and one of them can t forget his ex and resists to think about anything else The mothers are no better, but worse They seem to be ONLY mothers with no other relationships, other interests or other duties They behave like mothers you know from Enyd Blyton stories, meaning one dimensional, motherly and only focussed on their children Of course it s risky for a 40 years old author to write from his mother s p.o.v., but Sutcliffe fails spectacularly It seems a little bit self centered to believe that the generation before you have no other problems than to pry on their children and to try to change their lives Last and least The mothers behave dumb, the sons stupid, but still worse are the women they meet One is perfect but difficult , and the other one is neurotic but in a comfortingly exaggerated way, so you don t have to worry about her So in the end everyone gets what s he deserves, but the reader is not satisfied Despite its flaws, I found this book very ish and a nice easy read This book was one of the only books that I enjoyed for my Dutch class this year This book was refreshing, something I never thought I d enjoy Above that William Sutcliffe has a very fluent writing style and you won t be left with questions or confusion Above that it was absolutely hilarious Full review on my blog, link in the bio or here This book was one of

show.Okay, now here comes my spoilers for why I really wasn t a fan of this book view spoiler Am I really suppose to believe a dude becomes a sperm donor, his mom INSISTS its his child, she meets the child by staging a run in, and in the end, he gets a relationship with the kid REALLY Come on now, it made the mother insufferable that she would cross boundaries to that extreme and then the author had it all come out in the wash in the end as a happy little miracle PUH LEASE The relationship he was to have with the child was established at the beginning, and in my opinion, it was just awful his mom forced the boundaries to cross, and awful the author made it such a HaPpY MirAcLe tHaT iT wAs HiS DaUghTer alL aLoNg.Also, Matt was a stereotypical, insufferable, alpha male douche bag, working for the equivalent of working for Maxim He showed zero development and his story line ends with yup, nothing changed whatsoever Like, did the author run out of steam with where his story should go hide spoiler Anyways, I wouldn t recommend this book Save your time, energy, and money I m glad it was borrowed from the library so the only thing I m out is four hours of my life from reading this book Some of this was really good some great descriptive lines, I had to read some phrasing again because it was delightful and some of it wasn t my cup of tea because we re in England , so three stars I loved the focus on the relationships between middle aged mothers and their adult sons Three besties are forgotten on Mother s Day and decide to impose themselves in the lives of their 34 year

but they each come to terms with learning who this person is, learning about his life, loving him regardless I love the circle of life ending Another book recommendation from Dear Fahrenheit 451 Hilarious premise of three moms surprising their thirty something year old sons by moving in with them unannounced for a week since the boys didn t acknowledge Mother s Day What kept the plot moving was that each son had a different issue going on in his life. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Perfect book for a book club would be interesting to discuss the premise of loving and wanting to visit your son or daughter based on if they lived a life YOU approved of and gave you what you wanted in this case, made you a grandmother or not Although the writing was good, making me care about the characters, I found the premise shallow and outdated. Such a good amount of humor in this book and of course I love some good British humor It s not too serious, but does deal with some serious topics in a lighthearted way A good examination of mothers and their relationship with their all grown up sons.
