Review: Travels and Trevails of Small Minds by Daniel Falatko

by MK French

Nathan is a temp office worker without much ambition. He works for Professor Behr with one other office mate, with stacks of folders and papers all around him, and does little more than get yelled at or fetch coffee. His relationship with his girlfriend isn't much better, his coworker often makes fun of him, and he has little more to occupy his time than the occasional request from Dr. Behr. This allows him to start looking into the property deal, which seems odd, and then get sent to England and then Eastern Europe.

It takes a long time for the plot to kick in, and I honestly didn't enjoy much about the characters. I didn't find them very likable, and the only thing I really enjoyed was their travels around New York City. It's very well detailed and made me nostalgic, and made me believe that perhaps the bits taking place in Russia were just as reflective of the real thing.

There are humorous parts of the book, and cartoony illustrations with each chapter, but I overall didn't find the book very compelling.

She always had an interest in folklore, fairy tales, and the macabre, which has definitely influenced her work.
