Review: The Barber's Conundrum and Other Stories by John Hartnett

The Barber's Conundrum and Other Stories: Observations on Life from the Cheap Seats - John  Hartnett
Which did you find more appealing, the introduction or the conclusion? The book is broken up into 38 chapters so there isn’t a defined introduction or conclusion. This reader would have liked for the book to be a little shorter or split into parts. This way if someone is looking for a longer read, they can buy all the parts and if someone is looking for a smaller dose, they can buy one part. 

Why would you recommend or not recommend this book? I would recommend it for the first 10 chapters. After that it tends to drag a little bit. The humour is still very much felt but the tone of “I want this, I want that and I know everything” does not change and it sometimes feels a bit selfish. If you are looking for a light read you do not want to read in one sitting, then this is the book for you.  

Did the book description relate to the story? The description was spot on and you immediately know you’re going to have lots of fun. Anyone who has had to stay up finishing a child’s school project can relate to this book. Hopefully there’s a second book. 

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
