Book Review: The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

IMG_5719Title: The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

Author: Phaedra Patrick

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Story: Arthur Pepper lived happily ever after with Miriam until she died of cancer. While cleaning out her belongings on the anniversary of her passing, he discovered a charm bracelet hidden in one of her shoes. He doesn’t recognize it, and uses the charms to discover his wife’s secret past. Arthur is taken around the world, learning both good and bad things about his wife that at times makes him question their life together.

What Worked: Arthur Pepper, they don’t make em’ like him anymore. He is so sweet and lovable and the type of character you can really connect with. The story is just as sweet and cuddly as he is, and when Arthur feels pain, the reader certainly does as well.

What Needed Work: I think this story is just perfect the way it is. A little twist, but mostly predictable. A light read that makes you believe in human connectivity and real relationships again.

Overall: I would recommend this reading to anyone, and I think their are many positive points to take away from the reading. LOVE CONQUERS ALL!

Rating: 3.5/5

We read to learn, to feel, to laugh, to understand others. We write to teach, express, communicate, to inspire others. I created Invisible Ink as an outlet of sorts, an area where I can organize the chaos; a place where hopefully I can be true to myself, and my readers. Writing is personal, it takes a brave and dedicated soul to formulate a piece and then share it with the world. That being said, I get just as much out of reading other's work as I do sharing mine ( I am always open to manuscript review swaps, just send me a message). Words read off a page evoke emotions. When taken out of context, or through an out of focus lens - anyone can mold the words, shifting their meaning to fit their agenda or distorted outlook. Staying true to form and myself, I won't censor my content, but I will censor my audience. Whatever lens you happen to be reading this through - I hope you enjoy!
