Books: We Are All Made of Glue

Glue.jpgI liked “A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian” so much, I read Marina Lewycka’s second book “Two Caravans” straight off. It’s another black comedy, but now I’m struggling with “We Are All Made of Glue.” I thought it would be good for the plane but halfway through, I find I don’t care much for any of the characters, which is a bit of a drawback.

 

Unexpectedly, it qualifies as a Chemical Book because it has chapters called: Adhesives in the Modern World, Bonding Dissimilar Materials, Adventures with Polymers, Biopolymers, Rubber, Polymerisation …

 

I can’t help feeling that the chapter headings have been written as part of a bet.
