Genre ; Humor

Who is in Coma Suite Number 5? A matchless lover? A supreme egotist? A selfless martyr? A bad mother? A cherished sister? A selfish wife? All of these. For this is Silvia Shute who has always done exactly what she wants. Until now, when her life suddenly, shockingly stops. Her past holds a dark and terrible secret, and now that she is unconscious in a hospital bed, her constant stream of visitors are set to uncover the mystery of her broken life. And she must lie there, victim of the beloveds, the borings, the babblings and the plain bonkers. Like it or not, the truth is about to pay Silvia a visit. Again, and again and again..

I enjoyed this, i love Dawn french, but sometimes when actors branch out into other fields it kind of works or doesnt. This did! The book tells the story of Sylvia who falls off a balcony & ends in a coma, it tells of her nearest expressing their true feelings about sylvia and their life as for once she cannot answer back. Written with emotion and great humor this was a great book.

Rating; 8/10




  1. This looks quite interesting. I read her novel A tiny bit marvellous, which I didn't really enjoy but this looks entirely different.

  2. I love your short reviews! :) I haven't heard of this one before but sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing :)
