Gravity is the Thing by Jaclyn Moriarty – Our Review
Gravity is the Thing by Jaclyn Moriarty
‘Gravity is the Thing’ is a remarkably relatable and funny story, the novel is a quick witted, beautiful tale of self discovery and the search for happiness.
Abi is a thirty five year old Mum to Oscar, owner of a happiness cafe, nail biter, Capricorn and former lawyer who’s inner monologue is completely hilarious!
This witty, quirky and radiant woman has also encountered more than her share of sadness in life. With the disappearance of her brother on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, Abi has lived with a foreboding sense of pain- a grief that is always present.
Right around the time of her brother’s vanishing, Abi started receiving a mysterious Guidebook, strangely mailed to her. The anonymous author promises to help Abi soar to unimaginable heights, and leaves her intrigued. After two decades of the Guidebook advice, an invitation to attend an all expenses retreat to finally learn the truth behind this self help book arrives.
Abigail grudgingly accepts… and with it, she must open herself up to those around her like never before, and find the missing links that weigh her down.
A touching novel that will move you, and bring much laughter.
