Staff Review: The Opposite of Success

The Opposite of Success

By Eleanor Elliott Thomas

Review by Bel

Read this delightful debut if you need a good laugh! It’s a fast but deceptively clever, subversive, well-crafted read. Thomas’s observations of womanhood, ambition, late-stage capitalism and the pursuit of happiness are surprisingly touching for such comedic writing. Lorrie is a quirky, smart, lovable hot mess, who makes us feel like champions at life because she always behaves a bit worse than we would, and yet we cheer her on! I was thoroughly entertained and am giving it to all my friends.
