Review by: Stephanie Dagg on Nov. 4, 2011 :
This is a fast, exciting read. Jack Reynolds, a self-absorbed high-flying, high-stress executive and serial womaniser, is all about image. He has designer-label this, top-of-the-range that, and thinks he’s living the ultimate enviable lifestyle.
However, it’s not sustainable. Jack’s shallow world comes crashing down around him when he gets the first of his wake-up calls. Calls plural? The title refers to just one, but in my opinion Jack gets several which accumulate to finally make him turn his life around. You can make your own mind up when you read this story.
What is this book? It’s not quite romantic comedy, although it has both those elements in it. It’s certainly contemporary, and there’s a strong picaresque element to it in that it’s the story of a lovable rogue going on a journey of self-discovery. But you don’t need to pigeon-hole it. It’s a unique book, it’s gritty, it’s realistic, it’s a damn good read.
The characters are interesting and complex, the various settings are well portrayed, and the plot is exciting and original. On the technical side, there are a few minor typos, but I’m an editor so I tend to notice that stuff! On the whole this book is extremely well-written and constructed. And it’s precisely why this era of self-published books is so great - books like this get to find an audience.
Looking forward to your next book, Jonas.
