The Promotion by Christopher K. Michael
Arthur Chadwik is a man in a suit, but in a way he is just like everyone else. In life don’t we all want our wishes fulfilled. Don’t we all throw mini tantrums in our head when we things just can’t seem to go our way. In this novella Christopher eloquently invades the minds of not only Arthur Chadwik but the people who are affected by his actions. The Promotion is about Arthur making a wish and it actually coming true.
Arthur gets his wish granted but instead of the Cinderella effect, he begins to tumble down a rabbit whole.
“With each footstep, they flew about like insignificant objects in his way”
I can’t seem to find any negatives in this novella. I feel that maybe if the book was longer, Christopher K. Michael could have carved out something deeper. I will say that this novel was not my cup of tea which is why I gave it the rating I did.
The Promotion was so well written. Christopher K. Michael had a way with descriptions that painted vivid pictures in my mind. I imagined everything so clearly. I love that there was a lesson to be learned in this novella Every cause has an effect, even if your trying to help.
The novella gave me a great deal to thing about. To be placed with an opportunity to have what you truly desire would you take it. Things must happen naturally, other wise it throws your world out of balance. Arthur learned that sometimes you can’t get what you want because its just not right for you. Where you are right now is where you are meant to be. This was an excellent novella. I would suggest to anyone wanting to gain a greater understanding of wants and desires. I gave this book a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
