Christine writes commendably and delivers this short story on the simple premise:
I read this in probably an hour or so, I don't remember the exact time - but it was shorter than the trans-US flight I read it on.
Easy to read
Christine is new to novel-writing, it is apparent. The genre is well suited to the level of writing, you aren't going to find bukowski-riddles, or distracting F1 jargon. It's leisurely focused, which works well.
I'm a huge fan of Formula 1, and this short does a great job at delivering an interesting, but topical story without being tedious.
Choose your own adventure
I didn't realize this until after I read it, but Christine used feedback from sidepodcast.com to guide the plot of the novel. Quite an interesting premise, after reading the story it caused me to appreciate it more.
More to come
I expect that there will be more stories along these same lines, I look forward to reading them.
If this looks appealing to you, you'll also probably enjoy these other titles, which give an interesting "What happened on this day in formula 1". Again, super simple, leisurely and interesting reads.
