The Biology of Luck

The Biology of LuckThe Biology of Luck by Jacob M. Appel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Part guided tour of America's greatest city, part love story, part character study, The Biology of Luck makes me want to return to NYC just to soak in the atmosphere. This is the story of Larry Bloom, certified NYC tour guide, dreamer, writer. Larry is looking forward to his date with Starshine Hart, and he has written a novel in which Starshine is the main character. You get a novel within a novel, some fabulously realistic characters, and enough vivid details to make you feel like you're walking through Gotham on a beautiful June day.

The author (a real NYC tour guide and psychiatrist) gave me a free copy of this book and asked for a review; I would purchase this book myself, and I'll watch for more works by this writer.  I'll also pass it around my book club to garner more feedback. Well done!
