Out of Play
Out of Play | Joy Norstrom
5 posts | 4 read | 6 to read
Gillian Campbell is out of patience. Her husband is choosing his hobby over her. And the hobby in question? Live Action Role-Play, or 'larp'. Larp involves dressing up as a character (be it medieval knight, banshee or centaur) and participating in imaginary battles for entire weekends. Gillian is not impressed. She seeks professional advice and is surprised when her therapist encourages her to try larp. "Who knows? It may make you smile. It may make you laugh. It may even improve your sex life. How terrible could it be?" The advice seems super sketch to Gillian, but she decides to don a costume and give it a go. If larp doesn't work a marital miracle, Gillian will be able to walk away knowing she tried absolutely everything before giving up. Will going on her own role-play adventure heal Gillian's marriage, or will the game shed light on everything that is wrong?

I started this one evening and finished it the next morning as I was so desperate to find out how Gillian and Ralph's story would end. The book was beautifully written - funny, sweet, emotional. I laughed and I cried. The author handles a very sensitive topic with great respect and skill. It is a stunning book and one I'd highly recommend.
