Recession Proof
By Kimberly S. Lin

About the book:

Sometimes going after what you want is the hardest thing you will ever do…

Meet Helen. Smart, successful and obliviously trapped. For the past six years, Helen has given her life and her heart to her cushy corporate finance job and to Mark without question. However as the Recession sweeps the Nation, she is one of many left unemployed and with the burning question of what does she really want in life.

My Review:

Recession Proof was a book I could not put down, I read this in one night!  This book made me laugh, cry, and root for her current love life.  I could also relate to how Helen felt about her job.  Not only was Helen easy to relate to, but I was able to connect to her life in many ways.  The recession has affect everyone in one way or another.  This book dealt with real issues and situations.

I found that Recession Proof inspires me to pursue what makes me happy, no matter what other people say.  Recession Proof is a great escape from reality, but also presents a fun and unique way of viewing the cards you are dealt with.

I would have handled the relationship situations much differently than Helen.  I think her running away from the men who tried to get close to her was an immature way to avoid the issues at hand.  The best way to solve anything is to face them head on and talk about them.

I enjoyed the author’s use of real world references, such as references to movies, quotes, and book quotes.  It allowed me to really understand the book and what the characters were referring to and discussing.

Each main character ends up finding a positive aspect of their lives in this book.  They each find what they are looking for, which makes for an even better read.  Very positive, uplifting book.

My only quandary with Recession Proof was the author’s use of the “R” word.  As a parent of a special needs and Autistic son, I was offended by the context of it’s use.  I think the author could have used a different word in the dialogue.
