Book Review: The Compulsive Move

Check it out at Online Book Club!

The Recommendation

For people who like short and quick reads about life and the day to day things that happen to us, this could be an interesting story to check out. But, if you like action and for things to 'happen' I would give this one a miss.

The Review

This was a really short and quick read, and it was a literary story and unique in that nothing really happened. The story was quick and over with, and being someone who loves action I was left wondering what exactly had happened.

The thing is, this is more a book about life and struggles people face than a story about anything in particular. Things just sort of moved slowly in the story.

It wasn't my normal genre of books to read, but I did actually like it. The author did a fairly good job of keeping me interested, and the fact that it was so short certainly helped. I'm certainly not going to turn to the genre as a form of entertainment for me, but short quick reads like this can be enjoyable sometimes.
