An engaging short-story that many listeners will resonate with
- Janice Deane
May today be the day you loved each other least
Oh my goodness but this hits way too close to home. Especially the distinction between love and enjoyment. The first half of this story embodies the feeling of being crushed under a mountain of minutia and grayness like a less funny Office Space.
In the lunch hour scene the person I empathized with but kind of hate, in that self loathing kind of way, finally gets to exhale. The unwinding is palpable in his slide into self reflection. And I get to like him for the first time. The unexpectedly optimistic, life affirming ending was very satisfying. Act 2 was filled with as much hope as Act 1 lacked.
The narration matched the story's emotional arc, which is really saying something with this story. The lows and the highs feel earned and honest.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
