Review: “Kismetology” by Jaimie Admans

Posted on Updated on

Jaimie Admans is, in her own words, a young English-sounding Welsh girl, who has written a great first novel, Kismetology. MacKenzie lives with Dan, her significant other, three houses down from her domineering divorced mother. Wanting to get out from under her mum’s oppressive thumb, Mac sets out to find her a man. I found myself alternating between mirth and sadness as I followed Mac’s madcap antics. This is a romance, a wish-I’d-not-come-of-age, mystical ménage of crazy characters, merry misadventure, and deep feelings, put together better, I think, than I’ve ever seen a first effort done.

Kudos to Ms. Admans for an excellent effort. I have no doubt we’ll be seeing more and even better in the future.
