Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author and The Book Club in exchange of an honest review. The views expressed herein are solely my own and there has been no monetary exchange involved.
Now I am being totally totally totally honest when I say this. This is one book that I wished I would’ve bought instead of reading a free copy, it is that good! (Okay, maybe I am not able to put this into words properly, but I hope you get the gist).
The story is simple and the characters, you will find them all sitting right there in your office if you just looked around. The way the author shows how the smallest of ideas can give path-breaking results is funny and inspiring at the same time.
Lines like, “People with no money knew what to do with the money, which they did not possess, but people with money seemed merely to be burdened by it. Something was seriously wrong with the disbursal system in Heaven.” and “He realized that even rank idiocy could sound like distilled wisdom if dressed up in learned language.” make you laugh, while you nod at the relatability of it.
Certainly not as boring as I’d expected it to be. It isn’t one of those books where you are on the edge of your seat but you still want to know what happens next.
My only little complaint with this one is the use of superfluous language in certain places. I am a strong supporter of the practice of including some difficult words in a piece of text, but it shouldn’t be something that makes reading difficult for an average reader. Such prose can really turn the reader off!
All said, how many times have you wished that you’d bought a book, right when you are in the middle of reading it’s free copy? Doesn’t happen too often, does it? So go buy this one! Show some love to the author and give yourself a gift that you are going to cherish forever. Because this is one of those books that you can pick up every time you need a laugh!
I give this book a 4/5.
