The Nobel Prize follows a writer as he discovers that one of his colleagues has been institutionalized due to a mental illness. Each day the colleague becomes a different character from one of his books. The main character researches the books and their characters. While doing the research and visiting the psychiatric hospital, the main character gets an idea for a new novel. Will this new novel be the break that he is looking for? It is a great story within a story.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The length was perfect. I also liked the way the author touched on the subject of mental disease. The way Benarroch showed the seriousness of mental illness while incorporating a light humor was extremely tasteful. The struggles that the main character faces is an informative and eye opening reality that artists must deal with. The Nobel Prize is a great story that brings some serious issues to light while allowing humor to lessen the impact. The book kept my interest the entire time.
There were some editorial issues that caused me to backtrack in some areas thinking that I had missed something. These distractions did cause me to take a little longer in reading the book and caused a minor inconvenience. I do believe that another round of editing would take care of most, if not all, of these issues.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed The Noble Prize. The story within a story kept my interest the entire time. It touched on several issues that affect everyone in the population in some form. The author did a great job at incorporating humor to lessen the severity of mental issues and the struggles of being an artist. It did not get a perfect review due to some minor editorial issues that can very easily be taken care of. It was the right length for a quick and enjoyable read. I will recommend this book to everyone in the future.
