Before we begin, I would like to thank the person that recommended this to me. Hopefully you are still looking at my blog every now and then. I miss you so much!
With that aside, on to the book review. I love doing my bookish rambles! I find them very comforting to write, and I love when you come back to me with your opinions on the book! Today I would like to review ‘Rooftoppers’. I read this book in about three days. It certainly hooked me!
“I do, I’m afraid, understand books far more readily than I understand people. Books are easy to get along with” – Charles, Rooftoppers
In the third page, I found this quote. It is very relatable for a bookworm and introvert like me!
The overall book is an easy read, with some really beautiful ideas implemented into it. I especially love the character of Sophie, she seems very strong and capable. It reminds me a lot of Hetty Feather, if you have ever read that series. What I really love about her is the way she ignores social normalities. With it being set back a while, there is no equality in gender and women are still perceived as housewives: incapable of persuing a career.
The ending is incredibly sudden, and I look for a sequel! I may write my own fan-fiction on what should happen next.
Charles is a character that I also love. He allows Sophie on her adventures and doesn’t restrain her from finding things out the hard way. Charles can still vividly remember his childhood, when I imagine he was the same as Sophie!
The book is really interesting. I would’ve came up with a similar plot when I used to write novels a lot. However, I would not be able to perform it in this way! It has some really cosy and warming vibes.
I think it is forgotten how far we have came in the last century. This book emphasises all the social stigmas of the time, and battles them with characters such as Sophie!
I hope you go on to read this book one day.
