An Inherent Similarity Between Persons or Things, by Tuppence van Harn

An Inherent Similarity Between Persons or Things by Tuppence van HarnTuppence van Harn’s An Inherent Similarity Between Persons or Things is a whirling dervish of a book. There are so many things that I really enjoyed about this story, but there are a handful of issues that really prevent me from making this a four- or five-star review.

An Inherent Similarity Between Persons or Things is the story of Kandi – a recent divorcee living in a dump of an apartment with three cats and not a lot of hope or happiness. And she’s also a lottery winner and soon-to-be millionaire. With her life turning topsy turvy, Kandi’s daily existence becomes a comedy of errors. Almost before she (or I) know what’s happening, Kandi is in limbo financially, professionally, and especially emotionally.

After a whirlwind trip to Germany, the tornado that is now Kandi’s life gets even more twisted. Her winnings may finally be resolved, but nothing else is. It’s a little whacky, but these events are the ones that lead up to my favorite part of the story – when Kandi moves to a small town and really comes into her own.

Tuppence van Harn filled her story with a diverse cast. Some we get to know better than others, but each character is alive on the page; fleshed out and individual. What was really great about the cast of characters is how each played alongside Kandi and how each brought about some evolution in her – whether for better or for worse.

And yet . . . what this book is most in need of is proofreading and editing. The text is full of grammatical mistakes and typos. And, at times I felt the plot got a little too tangled up. It needs more clarity and a stronger flow to ease the reader’s journey and understanding.

With the attentions of an editor to clean up and polish the text, I could very comfortably give An Inherent Similarity Between Persons or Things a four-star rating.

My thanks to the author for graciously gifting me a copy of her novel in exchange for an honest review.
