Fate of the Watchman
Lester Sharp is a workaholic, obsessed with the success of his business and oblivious to the world around him.
All of that changes when a peculiar stranger comes into his shop asking for food and help. Lester soon finds himself on an impossible journey around the world to bear witness to some of the greatest tragedies a person can know, all frozen in a single moment of time.
In this challenging and gripping novel, debut author Chad Pettit, delivers a supernatural, pulse-pounding adventure in which Lester Sharp is in for the longest second of his life and learns lessons to last a lifetime.
My thoughts: Lester is an interesting character, one that many of us can relate to, since he is one who is full of flaws and yet likeable. I thought that his journey was an excellent one, one that reminds me a bit of It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol. I liked the message of reaching out to others and getting ourselves out of the me-centered way of thinking. This is an excellent novella, and I look forward to book it leads into!
I received this book through Just Read Tours. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
