Format: Kindle Edition
Insignificant Moments is a debut novel, and a smashing debut at that. I read this book straight through in just a few hours. When I finished it, I went back through and read several key parts again. While technically this book might be considered a romance, it most certainly isn't "chic lit" and will appeal to men as readily as it does to women. There is romance in the book, but primarily the romance is with life and living it to it's fullest. If you have ever regretted a missed opportunity you will connect with this story.

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.

Format: Paperback
After climbing to the top of a mountain in the hopes of a life-changing moment, Jaye encounters a woman in need of help. He comes to her aid, but never works up the courage to ask her name before she is whisked away to the hospital. Feeling down, he sits at his computer and writes an inspirational email to everyone in his address book. Three years later, the email makes it way back to his inbox, and prompts him to take some chances in his own life.

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.

I wish here was a way to give this book 10 stars!
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!

This book was about real life and how one simple decision changes other peoples lives in ways unimagined until it all comes full circle. Many wonderful reminders of today matters and the decisions made today matter. Thanks for a great book.

I remember a few years back watching the romantic comedy film 'Serendipity.' While the two stories are different, the core idea is the same. It makes this reader wonder how often everyday encounters between people ripple out like waves from a stone throne into a still pond to effect other people's lives in countless ways. I enjoyed this story very much. I thought all the characters were well rounded and believable and I thought the author did a splendid job of tying together all the events where the main characters intersected to form the greater whole of the love stories. The author touches the reader with every emotion, from sadness, defeat and loss to happiness, triumph and love. Each character's story stands on its own and the author does a remarkable job describing each individual's life while at the same time slowly bringing the separate stories together to form the big story. I didn't think this love story was formulaic like so many romances and that made it even more enjoyable. This is a good read to recommend to anyone.
