Sophie & Chaya Bibliochat: ‘Bewilderment’


I can honestly say I have never read a book quite like this, that made me stop and think or frantically google on so many occasions. It made me feel so many emotions, giving insight into neurodiversity, the universe, science, morality, grief and love in spades.

This is spoiler free so do watch even if you haven’t got to this book yet. We would urge you to read it – this is an @oprahsbookclub pick, a @thebookerprizes shortlist and the author has also won a Pulitzer Prize so the praise is rather unanimous. @barackobama said it changed the way he viewed the world and we would have to agree.

Thank you so much to @najmafinlay @hutchheinemann for sending us a copy. It’s magnificent.
