I don’t know if Marina Lewycka has any particular interest in glues, or whether she just bought a guide to use the subject as a hook. I suspect the latter. The chatty prose style does make it an easy read, but it’s far from good literature.

Marina Lewycka is an instantly likeable writer, funny, intelligent and refreshingly generous in her assessments of people and their motivations. We Are All Made of Glue is an extremely enjoyable read. t is underpinned by such a fundamentally good-natured and humorous outlook.

heart of sky
This is a busy novel, packed with the issues that influence & occupy our thinking processes, told with a wicked sense of humour.
When Georgina, a 40 something wife & mother, who is estranged from her husband, meets elderly Naomi Shapiro one evening over the contents of a skip bin, it is the start of a relationship that takes Georgy into the life & mystery of the sassy old Naomi & her bevy of objectionable cats, whose lives mirror the antics of the people who populate this tale.
We are introduced to an odd assortment of characters, such as the Palestinian odd job man, a scheming social worker, Georgy's seemingly paranoid teenage son & a steamy Real Estate Agent with a liking for bad poetry. We are also drawn into the big issues, such as the Aged Care System & the Jewish/Palestinian conflict, as well as the destructive forces of the electronic media with its overtones of Armageddon.
At times the action & interaction becomes bizarre as the plot rollicks along, but the inventive, sometimes gross humour creates an interesting plot &, as the title suggests, life contains the glue that brings us together & the solvents that tear us apart. An entertaining & imaginative read.
crazy mashine
Overall brilliant and intriguing story, very pleasant to read and discover the old lady's mystery as it unravels, the only spoiler alert comes at the end when the plot thickens and the author gets too involved with Israeli conflict, politics, ideology - too much and too irrelevant when overdosed. You're likely to get a bit tired and disinterested at that point but luckily it doesn't last too long.

I would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a good laugh . Warning do not read this book in public if you are embarrassed by others staring at you while you laugh.

Great story line that I and am sure many others in someway or another in part could relate too. I wanted to keep on reading. A story of relationships, broken relationships, watching out for one another, friendships formed and the many different life paths. Yes Marina Lewycka .....wonderful writing..
Saberdragon
Just a let down after reading A Short History of Tractors in Ukraine. She published this in Britain and from what I understand it never made it into American publication. Thus it sounds British which is fine enough but puts it a bit out of sync vocabulary and humor wise. Way too much "cat poo" for me.

It made me think about the bonds we all experience in life, and the impacts these bond make on our life's journey.
I really enjoyed the read.

This was a little slow to start but showed how life is inter-connected using glue as an comparative perspective. A very touching story.
Witty, fast paced and very tender (without being mushy). It grabs you from the first sentence and keeps you gripped till the very last page.
