Just an Odd Job Girl

I finished Just an Odd Job Girl  by Sally Georgina Cronin over the weekend and find it to be hilariously funny in many parts and encouraging in others. It’s an uplifting story of how one woman deal with things after life (her husband) threw one for a loop. Imogen Symthe is a very interesting well developed character. I learned a new word called “fast tracker” I thought it meant a track star. LOL!

In my humble opinion, Imogen is a bit of a doormat who had to learn to stand firm. You watch her grow and process until  she’s comfortable in her own right.

In my opinion, the moral lesson in the story is before investing your all into a so called loving relationship make sure the other person is willing to do the same. Actually, it’s very easy to tell if one is in a one sided relationship. Simply, the partner never helps out with anything. They always find an excuse, their job,  their gender role. Helping with chores can be a way of telling your partner, “I care about you. I love you. Let me give you a hand so you’ll have more time for me.”

I can’t imagine being married to a man for twenty five years who have never changed our children’ diapers. But I have heard of such thing.

Sadly,  Imogene’s situation happens more times than society realizes. I can’t say I understands this situation because had it been me; the situation between me, hubby and fast tracker will had gone down like 1666 burning of London Bridge. But that just my two cents. ;}

Overall, it’s a well written excellent book.

Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
