The Invoice by Jonas Karlsson - Book Review

BookThe Invoice
Author: Jonas Karlsson
Publisher/Publish Date: Hogarth / July 12, 2016

I got this cute little book to review, and was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed it. The author, Jonas Karlsson, who also wrote The Room, does an amazing job of crafting an intriguing story from a small plot point.

The main character one day receives a mysterious invoice in the mail, and a call to the help center leads him down a rabbit hole into the mysterious question of what is the cost of a pleasant life.

Though not a super deep book, it does make you think about the big and small things in life that make life good, make it worth living. And if just sailing along pleasantly is really the best path to take, or take a harder, more difficult and exiting path in life. It's a fairly quick read, and I'd recommend it to anyone that likes slightly quirky and unusual novels. Looking forward to reading more in the future from this author.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
