When God Was A Rabbit by Sarah Winman

I am very conflicted about this book.

When God Was A Rabbit tells the story of Elly, her family, her best friend, and the people she meets along the way. Split into two parts, we follow Elly as a child and as an adult.

This was a semi-good book, but it wasn’t a great book. There were so many stories and storylines, and sometimes it felt like it was trying to grasp too much.Some of the stories felt either unfinished or finished too quickly or too simply, making it a bit of a hot mess.

Despite that, there were parts where the book really pulled me in. Sometimes I really understood Elly and her frustration with certain things, I don’t want to spoil in case, you’re considering reading it. It has humorous moments that I really enjoyed, and even though I call this book a bit of a hot mess, it was still a good read. The different storylines in this book were intriguing, which is why it was a bit disappointing, when the stories didn’t feel properly finished.

If you like stories about family drama, comedy and tragedy, this book might be something for you. It’s bittersweet and at times heartwarming. Not an incredible read, but a good read for passing the time.
