Review: Funny You Should Ask by Elissa Sussman

Full of emotional depth and humour, FUNNY YOU SHOULD ASK is a whip-smart, slow burn romance that explores the possibility of an everyday person and a celebrity falling for each other.

Covering a span of ten years, Sussman jumps between what happened back then and what’s happening now, as she takes us through the budding relationship between Hollywood heartthrob Gabe and journalist Chani. The pages sizzle with tension and witty banter and I was sucked into their world from the first chapter. 

The way this book was structured, relying on the alternating timelines and well as articles and posts to lay out the story, was fresh and different. This is a book I’m still thinking about days after I finished it. 

Also: I requested this book before I even read the synopsis based on how great the cover was so this is definitely a case of when judging a book by its cover pays off in spades. 

My thanks to the publisher for the advance copy.
