Harry Cannell’s life is going to hell in a handcart – fast. He’s a regular guy with regular problems that start piling up until one extraordinary event changes everything for him.
It’s great to find a brilliant story that revolves around a character who is actually so ordinary and who struggles to make sense of exactly how he arrived at the point in life where he finds himself as the book opens. This makes him relatable to the reader, and positions them to feel sympathy for the misery he experiences.
This story is a unique blend of mystery, sci-fi, comedy, romance and adventure all in one. It’s a great escape into the realm of ‘What if?’ that tempts the reader to wonder and hope that there might actually be something more, some unrealised possibilities that we simply overlook as we pursue life as we know it.
There is some physical intimacy in this book, so it’s suitable for New Adult audiences and up, rather than YA.
‘The Unlikeliest Candidate’ is an absolutely ripping read from start to finish.
Book Squirrel has awarded it a Gold Acorn for brilliant storytelling and great writing.
