Howie and the Parcel Winch by Gavin Wicklow (Book Review #723)


Howie and the parcel winch is a humorous fictional story about an author who lives in New York City and is facing writer’s block. His stepfather gives him advice, which he seeks through. By doing so, the author creates a character named Howie, who is into parcel winches. That is where the story picks up, creating this really stimulating dynamic of a story.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The drama continues with the author’s life spamming with flashbacks and then back to the present day. The literature is easy to read and to follow. It is not long and has been very creatively written. The content is witty and, at times, does make you laugh out loud. I particularly enjoyed how the literary was fictional yet appeared like a memoir. The college pranks and the mischief, in general, was very alluring to read.

The pace of the story was steady, and the author took care, making sure there weren’t any layovers or doubt between the timeframes he drew.

I believe anyone who likes to read witty novels which aren’t too long and are out of the normal kind, would find this tale likeable.
