Frank Fisher is nothing. He wants to be something. When a mysterious young woman named Bonnie offers assistance by injecting seeds of inspiration directly into his brain, Frank finds himself involved in a twisting mystery full of addiction, desperation and self-discovery. Broken Bulbs, a novella by Eddie Wright, tells the story of the lengths one young man will go in the pursuit of "somethingness."
I have absolutely no idea how to rate this book. I liked it, but it was...different.
What I liked:
- The writing. It was descriptive without being flowery and it matched the tone and the pacing of the story.
- The editing. Most Indie books are full of errors. It was a nice change to read something that was well-written. I only caught one instance of a missing word.
- The intrigue. I was thoroughly confused about what was going on, but I was sucked in to the story and kept reading. And I want to know more!
- The price. I got the Kindle version for free on Amazon. A great way to learn about a new author!
What I didn't like:
- I'm still not sure what the point of the story is and I have a lot of unanswered questions.
Given that I liked more than I didn't like, I am giving this novella four stars. I think that this author has a lot of potential and I will definitely read more of his work should he publish anything else.
