‘Your Second Life Begins When You Realize You Only Have One’ by Raphaelle Giordano

your-second-life-giordanoYour Second Life Begins When You Realize You Only Have One by Raphaelle Giordano is a feel-good self-help in the form of a novel.

Giordano’s main character Camille, has hit a rut in her privileged, routine, upper-class life. She has everything that points to success and happiness, but no feelings to match that image. On a particularly “rough” day, Camille gets into a car accident and meets Claude, a routinologist who offers to help her get her life back in order. Claude has an entire curriculum for Camille to follow that involves more extreme adventures like riding in a hot air balloon and scuba diving, as well personal tasks such as creating lists of what Camille’s vision for her life is.

While the reader never quite gets to know any of the characters or truly feel Camille’s frustrations and despair, the point of the novel seems to be touching on something different than a typical story arc. The book reads as a how-to to happiness instead of a novel about a specific character.

Slated to be released by G.P. Putnam’s Sons on July 24, 2018, you can preorder a copy Your Second Life Begins When You Realize You Only Have One by Raphaelle Giordano from your local bookstore.
