Book Review: The Night We Met -Zoë Folbigg *****

You’ll remember Zoë Folbigg from her Amazon number-one bestseller The Note, based on the true story of how she met her husband on her daily commute. If you read The Note you’ll know that Zoe has a real gift for writing about realistic characters with pathos and a good deal of emotion.

Daniel keeps running into Olivia as they backpack across Australia. She is a bright light amid a sea of people but doesn’t appear to even notice Daniel but he is convinced that they should be together. Their paths continue to cross until one night Liv joins Daniel for a drink. That night changes their lives.

It is quite hard to review The Night We Met without giving away a huge chunk of the plot. It isn’t always the easiest read particularly if you have a sensitivity towards drug abuse, alcoholism or are recently bereaved. Despite and because of these caveats it is a fantastic read and one that will make you laugh and cry. We all deal with so much as part of our normal day to day lives and sitting back and following Liv and Daniel is surprisingly therapeutic.

I love sharing my favourite books with friends - nearly always spoiler-free as I hate reading a synopsis of the whole book in other reviews.
