Dettmann is a talented journalist foremost, and his reporting skills occasionally make his debut novel read like an article. Readers will find the bones of a good story, that of Carl Robertson, who faces a medical crisis in order to find himself, underneath the layers of a multitude of characters who surround him at his fancy ad exec job. Wading through the opening story of the man who couldn’t be bothered to stop long enough to see the people around him, readers will come across an intriguing tale of second chances. Don’t we all long to “re-do” those things that haunt us?
Each person has a dream of the perfect life. Carl got to choose his. Those who enjoy stories like Heaven Can Wait will have a good time watching Carl go back and change the disaster that was his life.
