Asher's storytelling skills are outstanding. He weaves intricate details of his characters lives together clearly revealing how their choices effect one another long before they ever actually meet and he does this so deftly that the reader has no trouble following along and making those connections. In a few places throughout the story it is apparent Asher wasn't certain his subtle clues would bring the reader far enough to make the necessary connections and he gets a little heavy handed -- like when the doctor gives a cancer patient his prognosis from day one despite the fact that he is many months into his treatments.
As much as I loved this book I did have one other little problem that strikes me as ironic. I have written many book reviews and lambasted the authors for their sloppy grammar and writing. that isn't going to happen here. In fact, if anything Asher's story was written too precisely and too well. As a rule people don't think in formal sentences and linear patterna, but Asher's characters all do. A couple of times that pulled me out of the story, but not enough to keep this novel from landing on my "favorites shelf". Insignificant Moments is a thoroughly enjoyable read sans offensive language and explicit sex scenes.
Lately, my book selections have been pretty deep and serious (things like Middlesex and Little Bee), so I wasn't sure what I would think of this one. But I loved it! It was such a wonderful story of life and love and all the little, seemingly insignificant moments that can have such a strong impact on everyone around us. It's the story of a group of people who hardly interact, yet manage to completely alter each others' lives. And, yes, it's a story of love and romance.
The back of the book says this is written "in the tradition of Nicholas Sparks." I'll be honest. I've never read a Nicholas Sparks book. But I know his books are very popular, so if you like him, you should definitely pick up Insignificant Moments. Although inspirational (in a non-religious way), this book is a very easy, enjoyable read. The characters are all well developed and likable, and the story, while somewhat predictable, has enough surprises to make it interesting and satisfying.
The amazing way lives are intertwined by the details that occur in this story is wonderful. Yes, a little too good to be true by the end, but handled so skillfully that I never found myself distracted. I fell in love with the characters & wanted to see them all have what they were really needing.
I rarely find myself so moved by a story until the end, but this one had me sobbing on more than one occasion. It's not that it is such a sad set of circumstances, but the sacrifices & trials drew me in completely.
Lucky for me I snagged this gem for free, but I almost feel guilty...it was that good!
In his fiction book Insignificant Moments, Jeremy Asher shares the story of the main character Jaye who finds himself becoming conscious of opportunities he has missed in life. A newspaper article inspires him to attempt to climb Longs Peak. While on his climb, he comes to the rescue of a female climber who is injured. He realizes she is the girl of his dreams, but fails to find out her name or how to contact her. Returning to life as normal seems impossible, so he pens a simple email titled Brave at Heart encouraging those that read it to embrace life. The story follows the next 3 years as Jaye is confronted by his own email & what he should do to embrace life.
This is Jeremy Asher's first book. His writing very much reminds me of Nicholas Sparks. I hated that I had to put the book down at bedtime & couldn't wait to get home the next day to read the rest of this book. Amazing story that will grab hold of your heart! I hope to see this author write more in the future. I would give the book 4 out of 5 stars.
