The Bunko Babes - A Book Review


The cover of the book, by Leah Starr Baker, made me think I'd get a light, perhaps fluffy, read. With the main character's chatty (though oftentimes cliched) voice, I did. And there was more...


What I thought might turn out to be overwhelming - both because of Bunko, which I've never played nor seen played, and the initial introduction of eight characters just for playing said Bunko - ended up being relatable and uncomplicated...


The reader's initiation into Bunko connects us with a group of women: Women who lead typical lives on the surface but have, like most, underlying cause for concern. From life as a seriously over-stressed mom to the demands of an active soldier's wife, from marriage issues to worry over health concerns, it's all there.


Everything is seen from the perspective of Becca, the main character, who the reader follows through many ups and downs of her own. Though she can, at times, seem melodramatic and pampered, she's just an average, Christian woman who draws strength from Above, from her family, and from those special friends she plays games with. Those three elements are what get her through the most trying times of her life, as the reader tags along for the bumpy ride.
