The Biology of Luck- Jacob M. Appel
3.5 stars -I won this book from a First Reads Goodreads Giveaway. This book was definitely not what I was expecting. The actual book is a novel within a novel. The chapters alternate between Larry's actual story and the story he wrote. The novel he writes is about Starshine's day leading up to their date. He is planning on telling her he loves her and that he wrote a book about her. Sometimes I felt a little confused because I'm pretty sure the author uses every word in the dictionary in this book. Sometimes it felt like it was a little overwhelming. Other then that, the story was pretty good. There is so much detail in the ways he describes the city throughout the book and his characters are really complex. I wouldn't suggest this book to people who like a sweet and simple love story.
