Javier Robayo (author of THE GAZE) steps in to review PGB: "SHE"S DONE IT AGAIN!"
Javier Robayo, author of this spring's smash hit, THE GAZE, has generously offered his review of my latest short story in The Coffee Break Series. If you've ever read his debut novel, you know that his insights are deep, thoughtful, and usually spot on...especially if he's singing my praises! This is more than just a review of PGB, it's an open invitation to enter MY world, where the unusual and the eccentric are celebrated, much like a Quentin Tarantino film...or so I've been told by Mr. Robayo.
Is it true that one event can alter a person's life? After Samantha's car is broken into, the world around her no longer feels safe. She makes some drastic lifestyle changes, but three years and a thousand "plan B's" later, has she taken it too far? Yes, according to Lara, the only friend that hasn't yet given up on Samantha. The day that Lara tries to finally knock the rituals out of her is the day that PGB shows up. Will PGB be the one event that changes Samantha back to her old self? The laughter continues in the third installment of The Coffee Break Series. Follow Samantha as she copes during a day filled with speed bumps and challenges she doesn't normally encounter in the confines of the controlled environment she's created for herself.
Javier Robayo's Review:
CF Winn takes the reader on another fast-paced, whiplash-inducing ride that throws you right in the thick of things. It reads as a commentary on life itself and our constant battle to control our circumstances depending how one filters it, and it also reads like a literary challenge. If you're the kind of person who's blessed with linear thinking, I'm afraid you'll miss many of the subtleties within the mind of this unique author. But if you're able to multi-focus and open your mind to each strand of this fun ball of literary yarn, you'll get so much more than you bargained for. The sly references to the other members of The Coffee Break Series, Kafe Castro, and Moore than Meets the Eye, are masterfully weaved in, bringing a smile to your face and enticing you to read them again. CF's writing voice is one in a trillion and these shorts make for a better pick me up than a cup of espresso. Can't wait to see what CF will come up with next!
