The Seven Rules of Elvira Carr by Frances Maynard

Seven RulesContemporary Fiction

An insightful view into the life of an adult woman with a condition that appears to be on the Autism spectrum, although it is never specified. This book has been compared to the Rosie Project but I believe this is a view from a different angle into the adult world of Autism. We watch Elvira deal with daily life and the complexities of “normal” conversation which is challenging for someone who deals in literal and only truths.

The scenes tended to abruptly change and sometimes it took me a couple of sentences to realize that time or location had changed. I wonder if the author was in some way using this technique to have the reader thrown off a little (figure of speech) to be able to better sympathize with Elvira. Definitely a book to add to your collection and pass on to other readers.

This book will be available for purchase as of July 11, 2017
