Book Review | Who Got Liz Gardner

Title: Who Got Liz Gardner

Author: Elizabeth Allen

My Review:

Who Got Liz Gardner is not typically a book genre that would be on my reading list. However, it is not often that I get the opportunity to write a review of a book written by a local author. I am glad that this was the exception because I thoroughly enjoyed reading Who Got Liz Gardner by Elizabeth Allen.

Who Got Liz Gardner is written in the first person narrative and when I first started reading it I thought perhaps it was the author’s memoir. I learned however that this is purely a work of fiction. It is a “coming of age” novel following the adventures of a dysfunctional actress who grew up in the 70’s and 80’s. The story sets the stage for the main character, “Liz” as she spends her life in search of “Mr. Right”. This is an account that includes many sexual (mis)adventures and the quest to find meaningful male companionship. Though at times the novel is sexually explicit, I was not offended and felt it appropriate to accompany the wit and rawness of the story.

This is certainly not your traditional romance novel….it takes it to the next level by including deceit, dysfunctional parents, love triangles, aliens, ghosts, vegetarians and so much more. Will the main character be able to come to a point in her life where she can move past her emotional baggage and find true love?
