Pricks and Pragmatism by J.L. Merrow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Pricks and Pragmatism is a delightful and absorbing read. It’s just a quick novella – 50 pages – but it’s worth reading. The writing is clever, sly, and witty with a lot of quick one-liners and classic characters. The tension and conflict plays off obvious and exaggerated tropes but that doesn’t diminish the entertainment factor. Luke will warm your heart while Russell is adorable as a geek. They don’t stretch beyond their pre-determined boxes but the strong writing makes this worthwhile reading.

Hee! At first I was like “No WAY that is a real title!” but based on your review, this sounds like just the kind of crack I’d enjoy immensely. Thank you! 🙂
Welcome! I originally got the book strictly due to the clever title. It certainly lives up to that with a sly wink. Hope you enjoy it!
