Review: "Pip" by Freya North

book cover of 


Freya North is one of my all time favourite authors. I have read every single one of her books at least once and have enjoyed them all. Some of them take a little while to get into but not "Pip". "Pip" throws you straight into the action, introducing you to the major characters and immediately pointing out everyone's quirks.

Alongside the three sisters, Pip, Fen and Cat, there's Django. I really think Django deserves a book to himself. He is such a well drawn character who fits in well with the sisters. I like how the author writes not only from Pip's point of view but also from the main male's viewpoint. The life between Zac, his ex and his child is nearly as interesting as Pip's.

As always, the plot is well thought out and structured. The writing flows almost effortless from one page to the next and you are drawn into a sort of trance between reality and the world which North has created.

Finally, there's Pip's career. The kind of career that only the best of author's could write into a book without making it seem daft and unbelievable.

5/5 Stars, a must read (I have done twice).
