Book Review - The Post-Birthday World by Lionel Shriver

If you liked the Gwyneth Paltrow movie Sliding Doors, you will love The Post-Birthday World.

While Lionel Shriver is better known for her equally well crafted book, We Need to Talk About Kevin, I enjoyed this book more.

In The Post-Birthday World, Shriver places her central character, Irina, at a crossroads.

She must make a split decision - remain faithful to Lawrence, her partner of 10 years, or venture into the unknown with Ramsey.

Shriver creates a parallel universe in which we are able to witness the outcomes of both choices as they unfold.


The Post-Birthday World explores the impact of the choices we make and how they can alter the path of our lives.

It is a book that will stay with you long after the last page.

When you finish it, ask yourself – what would your choice have been?
