Southwest on the A303 by Adam Gary
Arguably one of England's most cherished and notorious roads, the A303 is filled with history, wonder, and magic. Adam takes us on a journey of adventure, self discovery, and touching family bonds in this moving coming of age tale.
Alex is a young man in his early twenties who has fallen into a miserable state of mind, losing his motivation and love for life. When he receives the heartbreaking news that his beloved uncle has passed away, leaving Alex with all of his belongings - including his renowned VW Campervan - he sets out to Cornwall for the funeral, rediscovering his love for life along the way.
Readers feeling like they've lost the spark of life will immediately relate to Adam's tale, and find inspiration to go out and seek adventure wherever possible.
Southwest on the A303 is Adam Gary's debut novella.
I absolutely hate it when I can't give a book a wonderful review! It makes me so sad! I fully realize that the author more than likely put their heart and soul into their book. I imagine that it takes a lot of hard work and time to write a book. However, I promised a true and honest review so that is what I will do.
I didn't really care for this book. It was simply ok. Not exactly horrible, just not really good. and trust me, I really wanted this to be a great book! The description sounded wonderful and I was excited to read it. Unfortunately, it fell a bit flat for me.
Too much of this book felt unrealistic. There weren't enough things that made the book feel like it could be an actual situation. Also, the writing felt, well, pushed. Like the author was trying too hard or something.
I'm so sad! I hate writing a negative review but, unfortunately, that is what I have to write.
*Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
