When God Was A Rabbit by Sarah Winman is about the relationship between a brother and sister and their related friends and family. Going back to their childhood in the 70s, it follows them to adulthood in the early 21st century (in a completely unrelated note, I’ve heard the phrase “turn of the century” used several times recently and when I hear that I still automatically think of the early 1900s, it still feels a shock when they’re actually talking about early 2000s).
This is one of those books where it’s best not to know anything before you read it, so it’s difficult to review. I’ll just say that I enjoyed the book, although it wasn’t my favourite this year. It did make me feel envious of the brother and sister’s family though, even with their faults and dramas.
