McInerney’s delightful tricountry romp is bubbling with life, love and unexpected twists.
Fans of Monica McInerney’s warm writing style will feel right at home with her newest novel, “Upside Down Inside Out.” As usual, her characters seem charmingly real, her descriptions of Ireland and Australia are visual and picturesque, and the story is engaging… Blending an interesting mixture of likable and eccentric personalities with hidden secrets, engaging locales and themes of love and friendship, “Upside Down Inside Out” satisfies.
Subtle, gentle humour … I loved the chance to “see” Dublin, the Irish countryside, Melbourne and South Australia.
Glorious summer fun read … Fans of Sophie Kinsella, Jennifer Weiner, Helen Fielding, and Jennifer Crusie will find Monica McInerney’s Upside Down Inside Out's Eva Kennedy rivals the likes of Bridget Jones, Cannie Shapiro and Becky Bloomwood.
A hilarious story of two people discovering who they are and what they want out of life… A fun summer read.
A classic beach read.
The perfect holiday romp…A fresh and fun read that will win the attention of its readers for its warm and bubbly tone… McInerney’s style is so attractive that even the most snobbish highbrow book lover will be cheering on the two heroes by the end of the book.
There is a huge ‘aaahh’ factor in Monica McInerney’s second novel… The book is great fun (but) laughter aside, there’s also a serious aspect regarding communication, truth and honesty and how vital these are in close relationships.
Sparkling… it’s all systems go for a wonderful romance… A long, glorious romp with a supporting cast of entertaining characters. The author leads us skillfully through this maze of near-misses and misunderstandings, and delivers a charming story told with large doses of love and humour.
An effervescent blend of romance, humour, travel and adventure.
