(Reviewed by Jeyran Main)
Reminding me of our very own Sex & the City story, but with a twist, this time we go through a male’s perspective. In I Came, I Saw, I Coffeed, author Bruce Miller dates around in hopes of finding his “Carrie Bradshaw.”
This book is about Bruce and his decision to start dating again and what he experiences when he is back in the market. The women are all very friendly, have good jobs, looks and are pretty well endowed.
Bruce drinks a lot of “coffees” (after all, he had over 350 first meetups!)as he searches for what is out there. His witty style of writing does bring fun and laughter to the collection of stories. While reading the book, you kind of start hoping for a happily ever after. However, the stories are so short that you do not find the time to get attached to any one of the characters.
At the end of every short story, there is a quote of some sort. Each quote is related to the story and provides a particular summary for the section. I thought that this approach was a neat idea and liked it.
The purpose of the writer is clearly stated by himself. Miller went on a voyage to find love and learned some valuable lessons. With this book, he wishes to share that experience to help others in the same position as him.
The impression left was a nice one. It was very easy to read and to follow. I would recommend this book to anyone who just wishes to cuddle up with a book on a cold winter’s day and accomplish a fast read.
The ending was good; however if you are one of those who likes a fairy-tale ending, then you are short out of luck. Love is hard to find and when found, does not necessarily come with fireworks. In the case of our author, he felt that we should not seek love but love shall find us.
I highly recommend I Came, I Saw, I Coffeed . This title keeps you engaged, gets you thinking and is quite enjoyable.
