Book Review – Adults

By Emma Jane Unsworth

If you’re after something witty to make you laugh I recommend you Adults by Emma Jane Unsworth. In this book the author depicts a realistic problematic and humorous picture of our contemporary disease of social media addiction and its pressure, its pitfalls and repercussions through the life of 35 year old Jenny. Her other novel Animal which was published in 2014 and filmed in 2019 is a great fun reading as well.
