Top Customer Reviews
Shine's book is a comedy, though, with a few bits of "truths" at its core. It's a good read.
The novel avoids the standard tropes of a Horatio Alger story-- throughout Shine is blunt and honest in exploring the question of how our identities are locked into our work, and how the former can unravel when the latter is suddenly taken.
All of that said, Nothing Happens... is a very funny book. Shine has a keen eye for the absurdities of American life and seems to revel in the role of court jester.
