“Making It”, Amanda Gibbs' debut short story, invites readers into the most intimate and personal moments of a couple's life spanning throughout decades. The story is told through prose, poetry, dialogue, lists, and focused vignettes, all with Amanda's signature concrete voice. Each entry of “Making It represents” a day in a year of the couple's relationship, spanning from first meeting to 30th anniversary. (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of Sage’s Blog Tours.
This was a sweet and simple look at a successful marriage and relationship. I enjoyed the simplicity and execution where the chapter titles were at the end. There was a clever dialogue and I felt that it was a realistic insight to a modern relationship. I read this book in a single sitting as once I started I was intrigued to read it through. I’d highly recommend it as a nice quick read.
Rating: 5 stars!
Who should read it? Folks looking for a short story on the true meaning of a relationship.
