Box-Shaped Heart Reviews
★★★ Box-Shaped Heart by Thomas GahrI was given this R2R in exchange for my honest review. Well I don't know where to start with this one. This story takes place in Batavia, NY, 1882. This is a slow paced story, them seemed to fit its era. The author was very descriptive, and I could picture all the places he was talking about. I liked most of the first 20 chapters. The characters were well thought out. I felt bad for the husband, You could just feel his denial and pain. But I also felt bad for the wife, in a completely different way, hers was heart break and loneliness.I also really liked the business partner and long time friend. He always had the husbands back, from when he was a sickly child, to dealing with his friends martial problems. However he did do a questionable thing.But then chapter 21 rolls around, leaving me with a horrible feeling of WTH just happened. The best friend is malicious, and ruins his good name. Is it possible that I misjudged the guy for 21 chapters? I hope not, but I did not see the complete change in character, coming right when he needs him the most. I seriously have no clue where that came from. Then at a time he should have felt empowered, he acts meek, and weaker than the entire book, almost begging for something that he should have been happy to be without. Not to mention the wife's, complete flip in character from strong, defiant, and lively, docile and almost pathetic. Then her sheer abandonment was horrible. So all in all, I don't really know what I think about this, because I did enjoy the first 20 chapters, but the last 3 chapters ruined it for me. Thank you to the author for showing me the town of Batavia.
Love this story because it's local history with a twist that works. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction.
Read on Kindle but it says that option isn't available. I promise you that it is.
