Happy March Book Review day! It feels like this winter will never end.
If you missed my February Book Review:
When I read the back of the book, I wasn’t into it. Eh, it sounded okay, but not really my kind of book. In my opinion, this book is so much better than the back of the book lets on. However, I will say the story is a slow burn. About halfway through, I wanted to give up because I thought the story was moving far too slowly, but I am so glad I finished it. I do not want to give anything away…but the book flips back and forth between the young main character living alone in the marsh. Then the following chapter is about a dead body that’s found in the marshes and how that all unfolds. So, you go back and forth between the two time periods and how they’re all connected. I will say the ending kept me guessing throughout the entire story. I would have given this book a higher rating if the pace was a bit quicker.
This is a book I would have normally never picked up. However, I am a part of my work’s book club, where we focus on business related books, and this one was chosen for me. Nonetheless, I wouldn’t have included it in my review if I didn’t enjoy it. Love him or hate him, it is undeniable that Richard Branson is an interesting person. In the story of Finding My Virginity, Branson brings the readers up to date since his last book Losing My Virginity, including the successes and failures of his newer subsidiaries like Virgin, Atlantic, Virgin Galatic, and Virgin Mobile. It’s a bit hard to pinpoint what this book is trying to do because it’s mostly random stories from various ventures. One of Branson’s main takeaways was creating the solution if you have a problem. I loved that mentality. So many times in life, we wait for someone else to be the solution or deal with the problem, but Branson is a perfect example.
Thanks for reading! Be sure to check back for next month’s review.
