Review: Changing the Little Things: A Novel by J. L. Manning

3 Stars
Pages: 228
In this book we have a fictional author, John, who is writing a book about changing the little things in life, to change the bigger things. With this idea he logs onto a blog and finds 11 people who was complaining about there lives (friends, work, family). 

This being so, he invites them all to meet in a private blog to introduce his idea to them.They meet three nights a week to talk about things of interest to the groups, about changing the people around them to suit themselves.

This book was very interesting to me. The way the author (in the story) helps these 11 people by just changing small things in their lives. It's an idea that people probably do without knowing it or don't know they can do it. So I have to give the author kudos for that, I will definitely be trying some of these ideas out myself to see if they work for me.

One thing I didn't really like was how John, the fictional author, was telling them to use people. Maybe he didn't really mean it that way, it does say several times that he is teaching them to read people, but it is how I took it. Also, I do wonder why these people felt so comfortable to give out all this information to strangers, so I do think a good lesson (as the author of the book mentions) is not giving out too much information on the internet, a lesson we should all heed.

Altogether I do think it is a very interesting book, the whole concept caught me from the beginning as I think it will other readers. We do have character development, from the 11 people as well I think from John. I do recommend this book to readers of all kind, I think each will find their own lesson(s) in the book.

*I received an Ebook copy of this book for free to review from the author.
