The Spirit of Want is a book written by William H Coles. Its setting is in America and Africa. The book is written in the third person point of view where the main character of the chapter is mentioned at the beginning but the point of view is in third person. The book has sixty-two chapters and two hundred and ninety-seven pages. It falls under the genre of other fiction.
This book has a rich language that is simple and easy to understand. The grammar is excellent. The book is a clear illustration of what happens in our societies. Many themes have been portrayed in this book and they include betrayal, marriage, injustice, religion, divorce among others.
The Spirit of Want is a clear depiction of what happens in today’s world. People being fired without any genuine reason just because they saw a senior do something wrong, people being discriminated because of their gender in careers, religious leaders taking advantage of their followers since most seem to worship the ground they walk on, rising cases of adultery and the relevant authorities protecting people with high positions yet they are in the wrong.
Lucy and Luke get married but when Lucy meets Hower Bain, their marriage comes to an abrupt end due to Lucy betraying their union when she commits adultery with Bain. Lucy goes as far as not giving her daughter any attention and her sister, Elizabeth takes the role of being the mother figure in Jennifer’s life. A. J Macmiel makes sure that Sandra Perez has been fired yet she had done nothing wrong she only saw A.J perform a wrong procedure.
The character Elizabeth is a clear indication that there are still good and kind people out here who are ready to forgive and help others. That not everyone who helps has an ulterior motive of hurting you.
I would recommend people to read this book especially those who are passionate to know what really happens in our societies. This book has clear descriptions of what is happening at what time. It has a good and smooth flow and one does not have to strain to understand the book. No one can be put off by this book as it covers a wide range of things that vary. This book can guide one on day to day encounters by helping one decide on what to do when presented with some hard situations. The plot and characters of The spirit of want are well developed. I found the book very helpful. Therefore, I give this book 4 out of 4 stars.
