In Hillel Lerman’s though provoking novel, “There Are No Fools: Why We End Up Just Where We Should” the concept of success is deeply explored and eventually disbanded. This is a book about people, unity and how we are all not so different after all.
Disclaimer: I received this ebook for free in exchange for a honest review.
The book is thought provoking and interesting; captivating in the varied locales the trio visits for their research. A couple of out-of-character comments near the end unfortunately disrupt the proceedings as the grads present their theories,but not critically.
The ending disappointed some readers greatly, and I thought about their reasons for a while. My initial reaction to the final passage was disappointment, but after reflecting on it I believe that actually the author is spot-on with the ending as the final piece of the puzzling question the characters seek to answer. I definitely recommend it.
On one hand, it's a decent story. I enjoyed reading about the various individuals the main characters meet, and their "Everyman" status as exemplified, repeatedly, in varying physical, social, and economic environments.
On the other hand... In a lot of ways, the writing in this book is a mess. Whenever I come across a book like this where the storyline is compelling, I easily forgive the occasional awkward turn of phrase, or questionable presumption. In this case, however, I found the repeated episodes of disjunct to be distracting. I really just wanted to get on with the story, to follow the author as he wended his way to the ultimate pointing the book. But bizarre and often (to my mind) inexplicable emotional outbursts from main characters, statements of statistical fact with a complete lack of reference, and characters that suddenly appear, with no previous introduction, as they are making their exit...it was all flotsam that detracts, rather than adds to, the author's message.
Speaking of that.. The author's message. Yeah. Well. Hm. Look, there's some really good content in here, but don't take too seriously what the pedantic, self-important albeit confusing professor says. Just talk entangle with a grain of salt and make up your own mind.
As I said, this book contains some really good content, and the story keeps moving. I think the fact that I did enjoy reading it, in spite of all my criticisms above, speak to the readability.
I received this book at a discount in exchange for an honest review. Any opinion expressed here is mine alone.
I like the fact that it's a short book, and read it in only a few sittings. The book makes you think about stereotypes that are not so true as you would think.
We are all equal, we just have to act accordingly.
