    At first I found the narrator's artless conversational tone engaging Then as the book dragged on progressed would be inaccurateI realized that there was nothing resembling a plot just events following after each other with no dramatic tension

    Anna Mcpartlin's novel is a very realistic interpretation of a person having to pull themselves out of the grip of grief Emma looses her long time love John and is forced to start her life over again with the help of great friends who attempt to show her the great parts of life and then push her to let go and move on This novel was interesting because rather than telling the story of a woman getting over something like this uickl

Pack Up the Moon

There's A Big Life Ahead Of Her But Can She Find The Courage To Live ItEmma is twenty six pretty intelligent and happily living with her childhood sweetheart John in a cute little Dublin apartment Her biggest problem is that her mother won't stop nagging her to get married already Emma and John feel like the perfect couple their future alive with possibilities But out of the blue a tragedy throws her life into disarray and Emma is suddenly incomprehensibly alone As sh. When a night that was supposed to be filled with laughter and celebration ends in the tragic death of her boyfriend John Emma wonders how she will get her life back on track Emma has friends and family to rally round to help her with her grief though Trouble is they all have problems too and the tragic death of John hurts each and every one of them in different ways There s Sean John s best friend who s struggling big time with his guiltgrief and ends up hitting the bottle Clodagh Emma s best friend can t help feeling angry about what happens Anne and Richard struggle to understand their loss but have each other to help them through their grief and Emma s brother Noel uestions his faith after the death of his friend As the friends come to terms with their grief Emma realises that the only way she ll truly be able to love again is to lay John s ghost to rest but is that easier said than doneUsually when I come across a new author it s through searching on but I actually came across Anna s books when I was searching for a new background image I happened upon a site of a book cover designer called Jenny Lloyd and on it she had the cover for No Way To Say Goodbye by Anna and I loved it the cover yes I judge books by their covers so I went onto to see what else Anna had written I had some spare money left on an voucher and bought Pack Up The Moon which also had a beautiful cover It s been sat on my shelf since August and I finally decided to give it a readThe book starts with Emma worrying whether or not she s pregnant and her relief is palpable when there s no blue line on her pregnancy test She then carries on her preparations for the night ahead her friends Richard and Anne have come into some money and are having an inheritance party It s at that party where the drama unfolds and John ends up dying It was such a shock to me as although I knew it was coming it was still unexpected for me We then see how the tragedy has affected not only Emma but her friends Sean Clo Anne Richard and even her brother Noel It s very powerful seeing how differently it affects all 6 of them McPartlin captures the grief of all six friends perfectly and Clo s in particular was incredibly powerful It says at the front of the book that Anna lost her parents at a young age so the grief of her characters is undoubtedly real and must be taken from her own experience Anna explores each friends grief that you can t help but feel so sad for them all that such a tragic thing has happened to themMcPartlin has created such a fantastic cast of characters in Pack Up The Moon and there wasn t one character I disliked The entire book is narrated by Emma and as it s her boyfriend that dies it s understandable she s our main character I uickly warmed to Emma and her sadness over her loss really comes from the pages As soon as Sean was introduced I loved him immediately I knew right from the off that he had a soft spot of sorts for Emma and I wondered how long it would take Emma to realise this Clo Anne and Richard were all fantastic characters also I thought Clo was hilarious and I hoped she would eventually find her Mr Right I really felt for Anne and Richard not only had they lost a friend but they also seemed to be having problems having a baby Surprisingly one of my favourite characters was Father Noel Emma s priest brother I m in no way religious but I could feel the struggle Noel felt regarding the death of his young friend Noel also appears to be falling in love which adds another dimension to his already confused mind The only other characters in the book are Emma and Noel s parents and Doreen Emma s neighbour and I loved them also It truly is a well rounded cast of characters and there wasn t one character I disliked which is a rare occurrenceFor most of the book I felt Anna s writing was a little off I don t mean that in a bad way the sentences just seemed as if they were written in a different way to what I was used to reading they were short snappy sentences and it eventually clicked that it seemed as if Emma was writing to someone throughout the entire book That was very cleverly done and when all was revealed it all became clearer and I had the ahhh moment where it all fell into place McPartlin s writing is hugely enjoyable and I felt that I was able to lose myself completely in the book The ending of the book almost had me in tears Because I ve never read one of McPartlin s books I wasn t 100% sure I was going to get the happy ending I love to expect It was touch and go for a while and I wanted to skip to the end of the book to see if it ended happily I m such a sucker for a happy endingDo not let the pretty cover fool you Pack Up The Moon doesn t half pack an emotional punch It s definitely an emotional rollercoaster of a read and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book Pack Up The Moon may not be a light or fluffy read but if you like chick lit that packs a punch as well as being heart warming then this book is for you Yes it deals with grief but it also offers hope for loving again and moving past such heartache Someone may well die at the beginning of the book but it s an uplifting read and I hugely recommend it The Black Sheeps Secret Child pretty intelligent and happily living with her childhood sweetheart John in a cute little Dublin apartment Her biggest The

Y aware of his and Emma's growing connection Witty acerbic and sometimes downright shocking Emma documents the stories of her friends and her own recovery from grief with a candor that engages the reader from the very first page With an amazing insight into the power of friendship and a wry irreverent humor that considers no subject off limits talented new Irish writer Anna McPartlin tells a heartwarming story of the courage it takes to move past loss and learn to liv. Anna Mcpartlin s novel is a very realistic interpretation of a person having to pull themselves out of the grip of grief Emma looses her long time love John and is forced to start her life over again with the help of great friends who attempt to show her the great parts of life and then push her to let go and move on This novel was interesting because rather than telling the story of a woman getting over something like this uickly easily and happily McPartlin shows that the grieving process is not always uick and far from easy This fact is evident in the bottom paragraph on page 216 when Emma finally frees herself from her parents Christmas gathering to go home and drink alone at which point she opens a bottle of wine and toasts Happy Christmas to John who has been gone for over a year and then continues to wonder about and miss him pensively I learned from this novel that a rising and falling plot is not necessarily the same for all novels one can write a story with no seeming pattern of rising and falling action but rather let the story coast along and come to its conclusion in its own time This ideology is risky because some readers would get bored of it however it is an interesting techniue and makes me curious as to what kind of stories I could tell using such devices
