Book Description

A boldly candid, raw portrait of a young woman's search for meaning and purpose in an indifferent world

Decisively aimless, self-destructive, and impulsively in and out of love, Elsie is a young woman who feels stuck. She has a tumultuous relationship with an abusive boyfriend, a dead-end job at a newspaper, and a sharp intelligence that’s constantly at odds with her many bad decisions. When her initial attempts to improve her life go awry, Elsie decides that a dramatic change is the only solution.

An auto-didact who prefers the education of travel to college, Elsie uses an inheritance to support her as she travels to Paris and Sri Lanka, hoping to accumulate experiences, create connections, and discover a new way to live. Along the way, she meets men and women who challenge and provoke her towards the change she genuinely hopes to find. But in the end, she must still come face-to-face with herself.

Whole-hearted, fiercely honest and inexorably human, Wreck and Order is a stirring debut that, in mirroring one young woman's dizzying quest for answers, illuminates the important questions that drive us all..

My Thoughts

Wreck and Order is one of these books that I wont ever forget. Is one of these books where everything is so well put together, space, description, characters, situations, writing style, but also one of these books where the characters, their voices play a key role on how the story develops. Unforgettable, reliable and believable characters, especially Elsie. 

I love that I could relate to her in different ways and what she goes through. 

I also love she is definitely not the typical heroine and liked reading and be able to know her and see her journey through her eyes, through the pages of this book. I think is very unique her journey to self discovery, what her place is and what she needs to do. I love how she is not afraid of calling things the way they are and show her feelings and emotions. 

I love how unique and different she is but how that makes her human. I liked the writing style, the pace and as mentioned before Elsie as a character is so different. 

Totally recommend this book.
