This was an enjoyable book of short stories that brings pondering into the ways of life. Each chapter was a different captivating story where the characters were in some kind of predicament. Whether the character was witnessing a murder, fighting a traffic ticket, or simply reflecting on life in a bar, Author Jonathan Miller had a unique look at the situation and a hint of humor that kept me reading. I like that his main characters are from different backgrounds and ages making each story fresh. I particularly liked the Childhood stories.
I mostly read Christian fiction but when Author Jonathan Miller reached out to me I could not resist. It sounded interesting and I love the cover 😉. So for my Christian fiction readers, I thought it was enjoyable and pretty clean for the exception of a little swearing. The e-book is at incredible price of 99¢!
Without further ado I present
On Your Own, Jonathan Miller’s story collection, follows the kind of people you know, but reveals the thoughts and feelings they might never tell you.
These characters – young brothers, struggling husbands and wives, aging bachelors, restless office workers – maneuver through the worlds of childhood, sports, marriage, alcohol, sex, the workplace, and longing for connection, under Miller’s honest gaze. His clean, straightforward writing does not rely on extravagant plots (though significant surprises occur); he finds a quiet richness in events that can and do happen to all of us every day.
Like the sun providing a rare glimpse down the clear water of a well, the clarity of prose in On Your Own allows us to witness people as their deeper realizations become known.
