This book... Wow! It was so unexpectedly great! It's relatively simple, yet it's complex. The novel's structure is very unique in that we learn about Sophie through the first person narration of different characters: Allison, who becomes Sophie's lover; Robbie is the younger brother; Daniel is Sophie's; Jacob is a guy in a band, who'll become Sophie's husband and a movie producer, all show different traits of Sophie, who unique and unusual.
I love books where the characters are imperfect and not necessarily good people. Anna North's writing is simple, there's a lot of dialogue, but also inner monologues. All the characters are fully developed, even though the central character is Sophie.
There is so much to ponder and take out of this novel and different ways of looking at things. The Life and Death of Sophie Stark is like nothing I've read. It stayed with me for a while.
