Review – Tully by Paullina Simons


The astonishing debut novel from international number one bestselling author Paullina Simons, beautifully repackaged

Tully Makker is a tough young woman from the wrong side of the tracks and she is not always easy to like. But if Tully gives friendship and loyalty, she gives them for good, and she forms an enduring bond with Jennifer and Julie, school friends from very different backgrounds.

As they grow into the world of the seventies and eighties, the lives of the three best friends are changed forever by two young men, Robin and Jack, and a tragedy which engulfs them all.

Against the odds, Tully emerges into young womanhood, marriage and a career. At last Tully Makker has life under control. And then life strikes back in the most unexpected way of all…

My Review:

Omg! WHAT A BOOK! It took me two days to finish this 600 pages book and I honestly can say this is one of my very favourite books ever! It follows the protagonist Tully, who was 17 years old at the start of the book. She is a frustrating character, a lovable character, an unfortunate character and also a fortunate character. I have the most intense love hate relationship with Tully, for her life, for her past, for the choices she made and for the people around her. This novel is a romance, a family saga, a book about friendship and about all the different types of love. Paullina has created a literature sensation with Tully. A book can be defined but at the same time cannot be defined. It’s a book that will tag at your heart string. It is a book that will give you a way in and a perspective to the ordinary people in Mideast America trying make the right choices for the right people and the right reason.

I cannot recommend this enough. A book ought to make you FEEL.
