Thank you to Net Galley, Berkley Publishing Group, and Madi Sinha for the chance to review this ARC.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed reading At Least You Have Your Health. The healthcare of the ultra-rich was a world I had absolutely no bearings in, so I have no idea how much of it is realistic and how much of it is just imagining.
The story grabbed me quickly and held on, and I found myself really wanting to know what comes next. The writing was thoughtful and resonant, if not a little pedantic at times. At some (blessedly few) points it did seem like I was getting lectured, but it didn’t persist for long and it was back to the story.
For a book about “looking beyond appearances,” there was an awful lot of reliance on stereotypes about the ultra-rich, about health supplements, about a lot of things. Fortunately, I really related to Maya – though the book did periodically give me major mom-guilt – so it was worth it to see how her story and her character progressed.
Overall, I’d recommend At Least You Have Your Health.
