What is age anyway....
I read a lot of books of various genres! I gravitate towards book that have certain themes. I especially love books where an old house is featured. I really love it when the house is almost like one of the characters in the book! I also love books that center around food! Some of these books feature a young woman who is in her 20's or 30's or even 40's. I'm 65 now. But I've always gotten along well with people younger than me. So I will often give these books a chance. I don't say - oh, the character is much younger than me...so obviously this book will not appeal to me. Because many times they do (and some times they don't). But I can say the same about books where the character is my age or older!
One of these books that is working for me (quite well actually) is "A Second Bite At the Apple"... I have to say that at times I want to smack the character upside the head - she gets a bit annoying at times. But then again, there are times when I want to smack me upside the head - because I get annoying - LOL!
What about you? Do you sometimes enjoy a book where the character is much younger than you (or even much older than you)?
