Loved the premise

Great message, a little full on. I would have liked it more if the 3.5 year old didn’t have such an unrealistic vocabulary. It just threw me!

Also, the characters were a bit too much. Everything was a bit over the top BUT I loved the message and the ending.

A brilliant listen

I loved listening to ever minute of this book. It had me laughing out loud. There was also lots of tender moments too. Dawn writes with such great insights into women’s minds the world of Instagram and #influencers. It is so refreshing. The narration performances really complemented the characters. Love it and can’t wait for the next one. It would make an epic movie too. #blessed #solucky #kiwifan.
Love your work Dawn and your IG.

Adored the book, SO LUCKY!

I’m an Instagram follower of Dawn’s and expected the book to be a bit sillier, based on the fun the has on her IG stories. The book was darker than I expected, but I liked the humor, nonetheless. I found the contemporary analysis of life as we live it, now, on modern social media quite revelatory, deep. “Well done, ya saucy minx,” I’d say, if I knew Dawn in person, which I do not, but feel like I do, and wish I did. #hugs

Crude

vulgar and crude will be returning. All it is about is women masturbating, vibraters and a very hairy woman ! Made me feel quite sick, not even a real story to it.

Just seemed to miss the mark!

I had high hopes for this book as I loved The Cows however it feels like O'Porter is just trying to be shocking for the sake of it. The way in which some of her characters act and think just seem far fetched and ridiculous at times. I didn't hate the book completely but wouldn't recommend it! I like the style of the writing and always appreciate when authors give you multiple narrator's but I'm afraid I just didn't find it an entertaining book. If you listened to The Cows and were put off by the train scene (which I actually wasn't) then So Lucky won't be for you.

Dreadful - reads like a badly written teen magazine

I read The Cows which I thought was ok... Nothing great.
But this was painfully bad!
Cliche, unbelievable, poorly written. It was difficult to get through.

Outrageous fun! Dawn O’Porter better than ever

I loved Cows. I love So Lucky as much.

Enjoyable and mildly shocking

I struggled with some of the performance by Dawn, it felt rushed and unprepared with incorrect inflection during some sentences.
Often hearing her swallow or run out of breath.
Story was OK not as good as Cows

Every woman needs to read this!

Another fantastic book by Dawn O'Porter - I couldn't stop listening!

Beth and Ruby are such strong and relatable characters; a story of true courage and feminism in a world where it's still so difficult to be a woman sometimes.

I also want to thank Dawn for writing so openly about the trials of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). It is something that so many women suffer with, including myself, and yet it is so rarely talked about.

Dawn has a gift for sharing the good, the bad and the 'ugly' aspects of navigating womanhood - and has helped me understand myself more as a result.

Just brilliant - humour, heartache and humanity.

I loved The Cows and this is just as good. Wonderful, heartwarming and immersive, the story centres around a group of individual women who all have a tale to tell. As Dawn does so well, their narratives have funny moments as well as being touching, honest and sad. I really recommend this audio book as the character voices are performed so well and feel really authentic. One of my favourite books of 2019.

Disappointed

I absolutely loved ‘Cows’ and so was really looking forward to a new novel by Dawn O’ Porter... ‘So Lucky’ just didn’t meet the same standard. I found it hard to even like the lead characters and some of the scenarios ridiculously far fetched.
A really difficult read.

Witty, heartfelt & empowering!

In some way we can all relate to the different women characters im this book. The right mix of emotion and humor throughout the book, kept me interested and invested in the characters.

Different!

It took me a little bit to get my head around this one and if I liked it... it's raw, gritty, funny.. very different. I actually really, really enjoyed it. By the end I was so immersed in the characters and storyline I didn't want it to end!

Being a woman

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This was an excellent portrayal and insight into the very different lives and struggles of several women in the modern world. O’Porter cleverly overlaps their journeys of self-discovery, bringing their stories together, and creating a sense of women’s solidarity. Exploring themes such as feminism, self-awareness, motherhood, personal empowerment, relationships, sex, love, mental health, emotional abuse and self-esteem, she has created a relatable and thought-provoking read for women of ages.

Fun and engaging

Although I like The Cows better, this was still a great novel. it was interesting, kept me highly engaged and I was sad when it ended. an important message but also a light read. Perfect for a filler in between heavier books.
