HOUSTON, TX, United States, 13-Oct-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — Fans of short stories with a sting in the tail, are in for an exiling treat with the Citizen One new book, Unexpected, launched on October 7th.
Written by P.F Citizen One, Unexpected is a collection of true life short stories inspired by the author’s travels around the world and the people he has met. The book features seven thought-provoking, humorous and engaging stories that end with the most unlikely twist.
In one of the stories, The Wedding Contract, the author tells the story of a man who was forced to sign a pre-nuptial agreement simply because his wife was wealthy and he was considered poor. As time went on, fortunes changed and the man became far wealthier than his wife. His wife and friends dreaded the worst from him because of his new financial position but what he did next was shocking.
Working as a Petroleum Engineer has enabled Citizen One to travel to many different countries. As a result, the stories feature characters from different cultures and nationalities- an element that adds excitement and variety to the stories.
When asked about his motivation to write the book, Citizen One explained: “I have learned a lot about life from listening and being kind to people, as well as from stories others have shared with me. I actively listen, and often feel like I’ve heard these stories many times before, until I realize that each story is unexpected and instructive. These experiences have inspired me to write. I wanted to write the type of stories that I would enjoy reading: true life stories. At first, you feel like you’ve heard these stories many times before, until you read the ending. This is true life—unexpected.
Love, injustice, friendship are central themes throughout the book. Each story is unique and helps readers to be aware that regardless of what is going on in their lives, at any given time, something unexpected (good or bad) could completely change their life.
Unexpected was endorsed by American Reader’s Favorite. The book was reviewed by Award Winning Author Emily-Jane Hills Orford on behalf of Readers’ Favourite and was awarded an overall 4 star rating. The rating was based on appearance plot, development, formatting and marketability.
Readers Favorite described the book as “A clever look at the world of humanity.” The reviewer further added: “There is compassion in the telling of these stories, as well as a subtle, wry sense of humor as one never really does expect the unexpected twist of fate.”
Readers’ Favorite is one of the premier authorities in the world of book discovery. They have reviewed books for high profile publishers such as Random House, Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster and Penguin group. Renowned authors such as James Patterson, Stephanie Meyer and Jim Carey have also benefited from their service. Nevertheless, the company’s primary focus is on reviewing books for new and self-published authors.
