The Cactus | Sarah Haywood
It's never too late to bloom ... 'Wonderfully funny and astute' Red 'The Cactus will be compared to Gail Honeyman's 2017 hit, the appealingly eccentric Eleanor Oliphant is Absolutely Fine' The Sunday Times 'An original, engaging and totally believable character' - Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project People aren't sure what to make of Susan Green - family and colleagues find her prickly and hard to understand, but Susan makes perfect sense to herself, and that's all she needs. At 45, she thinks her life is perfect, as long as she avoids her feckless brother, Edward - a safe distance away in Birmingham. She has a London flat which is ideal for one; a job that suits her passion for logic; and a personal arrangement providing cultural and other, more intimate, benefits. Yet suddenly faced with the loss of her mother and, implausibly, with the possibility of becoming a mother herself, Susan's greatest fear is being realised: she is losing control. When she discovers that her mother's will inexplicably favours her brother, Susan sets out to prove that Edward and his equally feckless friend Rob somehow coerced this dubious outcome. But when problems closer to home become increasingly hard to ignore, she finds help in the most unlikely of places. This sparkling debut is a breath of fresh air with real heart and a powerful emotional punch. In Susan we find a character as exasperating and delightful as The Rosie Project's Don Tillman. An uncompromising feminist and a fierce fighter, it's a joy to watch her bloom. 'Glorious...it twists and turns through human nature wonderfully' Kat Brown 'If, like me, you never stopped to think what a child born of The Rosie Project's Don Tillman and Bridget Jones might be like, there's one way to find out. Read Sarah Haywood's The Cactus. Meet Susan Green. She doesn't understand how funny she is, which is delicious.' Julia Claiborne Johnson, author of Be Frank with Me

This has been compared to Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine (right on the cover) and like Eleanor it features a prickly character who often says the “wrong” thing but of course is like she is for a reason. I liked this one though I thought it resolved some of the central conflict a bit too quickly.

Meh...it was okay. By the time I warmed up to the protagonist, it was too late. Also, the romance element was a very distant echo in the book. I don't know; it just was not my cup of tea.

What a delightful novel. I had been debating reading this one for over a year now, so glad Resse Witherspoon picked this one. The comparisons to Eleanor Oliphant are right on. Susan was a great character, though she was set in her ways and always trying to do what she thought was right in her mind, she showed so much growth as a human. The ending was great, I was always pulling for her.

charl08 I have this in the TBR, need to get to it (too many books). 4d

I discovered this book because it‘s the current RW bookclub pick but I just checked the Litsy feed and y‘all have been tracking this for a year!

I liked this book and would love to discuss in a bookclub. But... Do you ever read just one detail within a couple pages in the whole story, and you so non-concur with the author that you just want to walk into the editing office and ask, WHY? That happened here.

marleed @Jemgirl2014 I assumed it was just released so I was expecting maybe a couple comments based on ARCs. I had to laugh and then google it to see about 4 different covers. I kind of love the RW bookclub will reach back as well as a newly published book. 1w

I enjoyed but didn‘t love this. Comparisons with Elinor Oliohant are to be expected and I found Susan somewhat less charming overall. Yes she is socially withdrawn & isolated but this is a carefully cultivated choice. She shows a distinct lack of empathy and whilst I was pleased to see her female friendship develop she is still decidedly judgey. Pleased for her but not necessarily routing for her by the end. #anglophileapril #ownerofalonelyheart

Itchyfeetreader Cactus because I am not sure how many photo of my kindle I can post. Cactus taken in Joshua tree a few years ago. Side note cactus metaphor in the book was about as subtle as a hammer to crack a nut 2mo

This was very much in the vein of Eleanor Oliphant, and very enjoyable it was too! Without spoilers, I loved the happy ending!! My only criticism was that they called the mum ‘mom‘ which British people don‘t do. It wasn‘t enough to put me off but it did irk me! The people Susan met along the way were so lovely - lovely enough to smooth off her brusque edges and sweeten the whole story.

Starting on this after a recommendation from my Dad.

This is my new favourite ‘up lit‘ book..you know, books with endearing stories about complex human connections and celebrate the hero in each of us. Took me a couple of chapters to warm up to Susan, the main character, and from there, it‘s enjoyment all the way. You‘ll find plenty of biting remarks and witty observations from quirky Susan, and it‘s satisfactory to see her transformation. 👍 debut.

This took me an incredibly long time to read. Sure I was a tad busy, but this one ran out of steam fast and the character('s voice), instead of being unique, started becoming irritating and no longer believable. It's just a feel-good book for me, like walking out after a rom-com film and promptly forgetting it once you get back to real life. A bit disappointing, esp since I waited so long for this book. It's a 2 to 2.5 stars for me.

Well, round three is in the books. I really had a great time sharing books with you three wonderful ladies.

Thanks to everybody who makes #LMPBC so much fun.

I do a lot of seasonal and contract type work, so when I‘m working long hours, fewer books are read. I read over 110 books last year and I will likely end up closer to 60 this year.

If I do the math, I realize that I own more books than I can read in a lifetime, unless I live to be 135 years old.

🌸Q: Do you visualize the people/places playing out in your head while reading? 🌸 I‘ve recently found out some people do not illustrate the story while they are reading the book. I found this so fascinating and wondering how others read. I can see the people and places. I use memories or completely make up a world around me. I can see all this in a third person view.

thereadingowlvina Yes everytime! When reading a book, I can 'see' the setting, characters' faces, costumes, etc. My fictional world would be much more intense when I'm reading fantasy or historical fiction books! 😂😂😂 10mo

Leniverse I see it, but more like in a dream where you know what people look like but you couldn't describe their facial features afterwards. If that makes sense. But it also depends on the skill of the author! 10mo

LectricSheep I don‘t visualize anything. 🙈 I can remember author descriptions, which seems like it‘s enough for me? I think that‘s why I like Tolkien so much: he describes EVERYTHING. 10mo
Victoria_Clyne Some books I have a really clear image of what the places and characters look like. Others not so much. @neet_reads I've definitely had the experience where my image does not match that of the author. It always takes a couple of minutes to get over. 10mo

I really enjoyed this! Comps to The Rosie Project are accurate, but I think I liked this book more. A prickly woman has everything *just* how she likes it - but then she has to deal with obstacles that life keeps throwing at her. Her logical, unemotional way of looking at the world gets in the way of solving these problems & she starts to realize what we all discover eventually: life is full of gray area & we cannot control everything.

It could simply be, however, that I was aware from an early age that a close relationship with a boy or man - or indeed anyone - would undermine my freedom, dilute my individualism, take up precious time and cause the unnecessary expenditure of emotional energy. Looked at logically like that, it‘s astonishing that any rational person would want to engage in intimate relationships.
