Secrets to Happiness by Sarah Dunn

| reading | books | navy |

So on my first visit to the medical library at the Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth I was surprised to find a small yet interesting section of regular books. (In a medical library) Every once in a while I find it very therapeutic to read something that is not so serious. I have always found reading enjoyable, but it can get rather tedious when all you read are textbooks, and literature for your specific field, and stuff like that. Good old fashioned stories are hard to come by.

I usually pick up fiction novels based on the cover and title. I know you are not supposed to judge a book by its cover. But I remember one of my english professors saying that " the title is a summary of the whole work. " So in my mind if the title catches my eye then it is worth my time.

This book turned out to be interesting and very well written. Captivating even. It is a light read took me about three days to finish it but there was never a dull moment. It had all the suspense and drama that you would expect to find in a movie about love in the city but it was in a book form!

The characters are developed well and you can truly relate to many of them. The thing that I like the most about this novel is that it has the ability to touch each and every one of us. It is a story about one of the fundamental human emotions which is love. In a way it is cynical sometimes because this book shows us the darker sides of love. But at the end of the book I felt refreshed and satisfied.

I would recommend this to anyone who needs to take their mind of some things. Its a great read!

Thank you for reading! Share your thoughts with me on mastodon or via email.
