Adult Fiction Books Reviews

Hot Milk by Deborah Levy

September 13, 2017

Hot Milk is one of the strangest books I've ever read. There were parts of it that completely confused me - usually the chapters that weren't from Sophie's perspective. However, I still enjoyed them.

The novel follows Sophie as she travels to Southern Spain with her mother.  They go in an attempt to gain answers regarding her mothers many ailments. Sophie had put her life on hold to look after her mother but she didn't exactly have that much to postpone. I loved the idea and the execution of the novel. Sophie was such a relatable character even though she's a fair few years older than me. She doesn't really know what she wants to do with her life and isn't really sure of who she is as a person. Though the primary reason for her trip is to help her mother she seems to find herself whilst in Spain. The friendships and relationships she makes help to shape her and make her evaluate herself.

My favourite scenes were always those with Gomez - the eccentric doctor in charge of the clinic Sophie's mother is visiting. His methods were very unorthodox but very effective. And his cat is adorable. 

The only reason that I didn't give this book 5 stars was the ending. It seemed to cut off and there wasn't really a conclusion. Sophie's mother was very vague about her diagnosis. I'm not sure if it went over my head or if it was simply not explained but I wanted more closure. 

Either way I enjoyed my time reading this strange little story.
