I really enjoyed the novella and honestly I wanted more when I got the the end. It felt a little incomplete to me, but that is often how novellas are. Harold was a very mysterious main character, I wanted to know more about him and his life but couldn't in the context of this story. I also wanted to know more about the circus - seems so interesting.
Overall the adventure was a wonderful one about taking risks and just going for it and not being afraid to get outside your comfort zone. Very fun, quick read.
The author was kind enough to send me her book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this short story or novella, I found myself wanting more when I reached the end.
This is a 42 page short novella about Harold a 50 year old man that has lived his entire life stuck in routine wake up, eat breakfast, go to work, leave work, eat dinner, and sleep, it has been like this for years. Harold is a man that keeps to himself he has no friends besides his cat and has no desire to make friends or break away from his routine; until the day the circus comes to his hometown. The circus has brought a tiger and Harold has never seen a tiger and is really intrigued by it, so he decided to break his routine and go to the circus to see the tiger after work.
I really love this story it was a quick read and the author's writing was superb, I love the way she described scenes she made me feel like I was right there next to Harold. I also loved the message the story is trying to send, that no matter your age it's never too late to break out of routine and do as your heart desires. I really do hope the author writes more about Harold and his life. If you're looking for a heartwarming story with a beautiful message look no further, also is super short so you have no excuse to not read it lol.
I feel a profound need to rebel against the culture of violence that dominates so much of what we are offered across the genres. I would read any and every book by this author. We are taken into a world both familiar and not, and the writing is flawless. The sensibility is sublime.
This is a hero's tale, legend. Magnificent.
I really enjoyed reading this book and plan to read it again soon to glean more from the story.
