My Take on the Book:
There were times when Daniel Evart seemed to be a bit of a dreamer; and I found it interesting to follow him around when he did his journalism rounds. I was hoping for a little bit more from this story, with Daniel maybe being a bit more bold and outgoing, though I was satisfied with the ending, even though I wanted to know what happens afterwards. 

Last Word:
I'm hoping that there's going to be a sequel to this book. The novella ended up being an easygoing and slightly fast read.
