Review: Vinegar Girl: The Taming of the Shrew Retold

Vinegar Girl: The Taming of the Shrew Retold
Vinegar Girl: The Taming of the Shrew Retold by Anne Tyler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this one as audio book, it had the most wonderful reader, she hooked me from the beginning and maybe my enjoyment of it was linked as much to her fabulous job reading as it was to the story. This is a retelling of The Taming of the Shrew, which has always been a play I liked. I also really like Anne Tyler so it was a great combination. Kate is perennially single, the elder daughter of a widower scientist, she has raised and looked after her younger sister and dad. She is presented with the opportunity to marry her father’s research assistant to keep him from being deported. Kate is a sensible, practical and snarky. She is not the type to be forced into marriage – or is she?

Such a good hearted and warm book, great dialogue and plenty of snark. Loved it.
