Book Review: One moment in time

…by Glenn Snyder.

One Moment in time

Jack Barrett is on the way with his friend Travis on rainy November night to celebrate the latter’s birthday. On their way, they meet with an accident: a truck runs a red light and rams into their car. This moment in time changes Jack’s life forever. With a whole new outlook on life, Jack quits his job, travels overseas, meets the love of his life Maggy, adopts a little girl Ana with her, and grows on to be a leader with many achievements. However, in the end, you begin to question: what is reality and what is a dream?

The book started off in a promising manner for me but then just lost me mid-way. With Jack being so good and so selfless, he was unrealistic. And then his achievements…well, they were like a Hollywood movie. He saves people during an earthquake, becomes governor even though he doesn’t run for office, then becomes president, manages to stop terrorists who have attacked America, brings peace between the Iranians and the Palestinians. It was not very believable. The ending didn’t grip me either. It left me with a “what the…” feeling. In fact, the ending was one that I remember being told during my creative writing classes that should be avoided if possible.

Having said that, it could just be me because on Goodreads, I found many people had rated it between 3 to 5. So I’m not sure if I’m missing something. You can find out for yourself by entering the giveaway of this book which is coming up.

My rating:
