فقط ۳۰-۴۰ صفحه اول رو خوندم و حس میکنم نویسنده فکر کرده مخاطبانش تعدادی کودک دبستانی هستند :|

I wanted to end the year with something light and unchallenging, and this was the perfect choice. A story that tells us we can never really know another person, sometimes the ones we love least of all.

This book reminds me so much of @A Man Called Ove@. What is about charming, grumpy, old, lonely men finding a new lease on life that I cannot get enough of. My heart is all warm and toasty after finishing this book. Arthur Pepper is one of those characters that grabs hold of a piece of your heart and never lets it go.

Maybe it is the travel bug in me, or me always wanting to live every piece of life like its golden why I LOVE this novel. Patrick really did an amazing job of taking you on an unforgettable journey. You are reminded it is never too late to start anything or travel- that message really resonated with me.

For those going through a difficult time, stuck in a rut or just does not know what direction to go- reading this book might clear up some paths for you.

I almost cannot believe this is a debut! I am looking forward to reading more from Patrick!

I smiled when I realized that @The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper@ were LITERALLY the gold charms on a bracelet that he finds, tucked in a winter boot, as he prepares to finally clear away the clothing of his wife Miriam who died a year before. The sixty-nine year old fellow has mournfully and rigidly kept to the schedule and rituals of daily life with his wife but without her it has become sadly vacant.

Upon finding the curious and valuable charms, Arthur realizes that Miriam had a life before him that he knew nothing about. He sets off to solve the mystery, and much like the stars of Sophie Kinsellas famous chick lit series, becomes the hero in @over-the-top@ hijinks on the zany adventures which answer questions and release him from his former inhibited comfort zone in family and friend relationships.

For me, the novel was sweet and light, a cute bit of @elderly rebirth lit@ which almost has become a recent genre of its own.

3 stars because I thought it was engagingly charmingly British and I loved the title.

I thought this was a cute story, but nothing really special. It was a bit too coincidental for my tastes, but still cute. I would recommend it for someone looking for a quick and easy, feel good read. Maybe 3.5★.
