Delightful, funny and engaging.

Everyday life for a stay at home mom can become so redundant and boring, especially for Lizzy. Her sporadic imagination and wild dreams are big and bright and her head is always overflowing with stories that must be written down. A dull and uninteresting husband makes her daily routine even more monotonous and Lizzy’s silly mind wanders prompting her to write a book. Which then leads Lizzy to landing a marvelous book-to-movie script deal that she just cannot pass up.

An opportunity of a lifetime arises for Lizzy to go on location to watch her thoughts, visions and words come to life on the big screen and she couldn’t be more excited (and nervous) to attend. The perfect chance to escape from a methodical life, Lizzy soon finds herself at a standpoint. When the lines of friendship become blurry and decisions must be made, author Marianne Hansen delivers a wholehearted package of humor and preposterous laughs while maintaining a balanced storyline.

With lovable and relatable characters, Marianne Hansen has a keen knack for creating personalities that readers love to get to know. They are fully developed and fleshed out with strengths and weaknesses, making them very real. The Unscripted Life of Lizzy Dillinger is an engaging page turner, and one of the best books in the genre of humor and satire that I have read in a long time.

I would absolutely suggest this delightfully fun and quirky book to anyone that likes their funny bone tickled. It is worded wonderfully with a descriptive narrative and never fails to amuse. The Unscripted Life of Lizzy Dillinger is one I will never forget and just may want to pick up again. A definite two thumbs up from this content and satisfied reader.
