Book Review: ‘The Cows’ by Dawn O’Porter
This novel typifies modern day society in light of the centrality on wide-coverage media and social media, and shows the reflections of modern society.
It focuses on the lives of three women: Tara, Cam and Stella. It shows how their day lives and feelings play out and change due to self-perceived pressures of expectations placed on them by their own feelings from family and society.
O’Porter’s clever and realistic writing intertwines the characters’ personal stories to tackle current, controversial subjects of our modern society.
A funny and moving novel. This story shows that we don’t have to conform to a certain stereotype; “Don’t follow the herd”.
