Book Review | Terms & Conditions : a novel by Robert Glancy

imageFrank has hit middle-life and is struggling after a car accident leaves him without his memory. As a lawyer at the family owned firm, his job is to write the terms and conditions fine print on major contracts. As memories return to him, he recalls some of the not so pleasant terms of his own life prior to the accident. His loving wife seems a bit less loving and his confident elder brother, the firm’s boss, seems more of a buffoon.

Told in the first person narrative, Glancy’s novel presents a character who is easy to relate to and understand. Frank is a middle child and often bends to the will of others, despite his own conflicting feelings. The book is more of a slice of life type set in England, without any extraordinary or unreal elements. Accessible to all, Frank’s tale is instantly interesting and the book is a pretty quick read. It would serve as good entertainment for a person feeling trapped in the everyday or an open-minded cynic. Check out the book or eBook from a library near you.
