Book #8 - Range of Motion

Range of Motion by Elizabeth Berg

Rating: 2.5/5

Comments: My first Berg and while I enjoyed her simple, yet comfortable style, ultimately I was disappointed. I've read too many coma stories lately (The Ninth Life of Louis Drax by Liz Jensen, The Coma by Alex Garland, and My Name is Sei Shonagon by Jan Blensdorf) that I probably should've paid more attention to the storyline before starting this one. How Lainey copes with her husband being in a coma, and questions the future, came across very real, but there were a couple of elements to the story that seemed, in my opinion, unnecessary and distracting. I won't say no to another book by Berg if it crosses my path, but in the meantime I have plenty of other books calling my name.
