I wanted to p0st my review in as many places as possible. Here is my review:
A Crazy Optimist, by Anne Greene is a very easy read. It kept my interest throughout the book. It is actually a novella and less than 100 pages long. Because of the shortness of the book, the characters cannot be as fully fleshed out as in a true novel, but she does a great job. The main character, Sparkle, is full of life and very optimistic. The other main character is her friend who is a bit more reserved.
The story flows well and is a unique idea. There was one part that was not resolved in the book and that was a bit disappointing but understandable with the shortness of the book. All in all it was a delightful read. The editing was very good, though not perfect but the errors did not distract from my enjoyment. In fact, I really only recall one error.
In full disclosure, I was given this book but reading and reviewing it was my choice.
I recommend you get this book and read it, you'll enjoy it, I'm sure.
