I am not sure what this is, but I’ll attempt to define it by what I know what it’s not. It’s not a full story–it’s part of Amazon’s bizarre plan of world Prime domination, which apparently has focus tested “multiple short essay-to-short-story length Kindle Books” as a perk that people enjoy? Seems gratuitous–I have Prime because I want Video and to occasionally order things I can’t find elsewhere–but I’m not complaining if authors I like get some of that Bezos money.
There’s a lot of wink wink for the readers here as well. Our main character (Adam) is clearly in the wrong, thinking of himself as this Knight In Shining Armor while we know better. That point is made many times (humorous!) but then I don’t know that I would have spent as much time there and as little time towards the end, when it suddenly became plot-o-rama.
In any case, I read this because I like Rainbow Rowell, and I’m very eagerly awaiting Any Way the Wind Blows!
