“Fans of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine will love The Cactus.” —Red magazine

An unforgettable love story that shows sometimes you have to embrace the unexpected.

Susan Green is like a cactus: you can't get too close. She likes things perfectly ordered and predictable. No surprises. But suddenly confronted with the loss of her mother and the unexpected news that she is about to become a mother herself, Susan’s greatest fear is realized. She is losing control.

Enter Rob, the dubious but well-meaning friend of her lazy brother. As Susan’s due date draws near and her world falls further into a tailspin, Susan finds an unlikely ally in Rob. She might have a chance at finding real love and learning to love herself, if only she can figure out how to let go.

"I found myself laughing out loud." —Reese Witherspoon

The story starts slow and feels a little rushed at the end. It is a nice summer read. The narration is great. A little stiff at the start, you can hear the narrator’s smiling or crying mimics in the right moments as the story pics up, which adds up nicely to the development of the protagonist.

This book took me some time to get into to be honest. I was determined to finish it to see what happens to Susan. And I am so glad I stuck it out. The beginning and middle are a bit dull but the end is great and makes the book.
