What an accomplished first novel. I also noted the Gatsby nod, however this is so much more than a simple pastiche. The author's unique writing style and ability to draw a character really brings both the people and the Cotswolds setting to life. It also expertly captures the ennui of life as a comfortable thirty-forty something if you get too hung up on the mundanities and missed opportunities and forget to enjoy the simple pleasures. Full of wry and profound observations, this moral fable leaves you feeling thoroughly entertained and wanting more from this talented and imaginative writer.

The author presents some routinely matter of fact observations about life in this book, yet it is amazingly engaging for that reason because you can identify with all of the characters throughout the book and believe many of the scenarios raised, most likely because we have all lived some or all of them at some point in our lives.

It's a bit like living your own life vicariously through your own life.

Chapter 18 is definitely my favourite as it begins to unravel the whole story incredibly well. So many authors fail to deliver a strong ending especially when self publishing, but Breeze delivers the end with ease.

I can tell that the author was finding his feet in the first few chapters as the writing style becomes much easier and free flowing as you get deeper into the book. It becomes more real and raw after a few chapters.

Excellent piece of writing, very creative, very real!

A smooth poetic style runs the entire length of this brief novel. In turn, I loved each of the two male characters, then hated their weakness, then pitied them for the mess they made, then I loved them all over again. This colourful story keeps you gripped and the lyrical descriptions make the story materialise right in front of you. It reminds me of Sebastian Faulks meets the Great Gatsby. In fact, I’d love to see Baz Luhrmann get his hands on this and make it come to life.
