A glowing review from The Sunday Book Review Blog for THE HUMAN BOBBY
Gabe Rotter has written an impeccable tale of your average Joe finding love, living the dream and having everything taken away from him after a decision to answer an email goes bad. What makes it so intriguing is that the tale can belong to any one of us. We just need that one event to send us down a tale spin. We relate to Bobby in the beginning while he is living the high life. He pulls on our strings in the middle as he tries to cope with the kidnapping of his son and we have pity and sadness for him in the end (where I won’t tell you the shocking twist the author has for you).
It is a fast read (first book I have read in a while where I didn’t take a break in between) with an almost unbelievable story that actually is incredibly convincing. I must confess that I found myself looking at the back cover at least several times to make sure this wasn’t a memoir or a retelling of someone’s life. The incidents and reactions of all the characters are so well written and so true to life, it will have you doing the same.
I recommend this book to not only individuals but to book clubs. After reading “The Human Bobby” not only will you become a fan of the book but more importantly, a fan of the author.
