Review of Randy at your service by Shay Carter.
Randy at your service is a story of Randy the last child of John and Majorie Love who was named after his mom’s favourite singer Randy Crawford. Randy is not one to settle when he is not enjoying himself so while spending time in his dad’s house for holiday he took on a few jobs and when he was not comfortable with the jobs anymore he opted to work in London when he got a better offer.
Randy at your service is a coming of age novel that uniquely shows Randy’s journey from a naive and know it all kind of life; who we witness changes his residence, job and girlfriend once he has lost interest or has seen what he believes to be a better offer.
There were virtually no grammatical errors or formatting issues to complain about; the characters were quite realistic. I found the ending to be however rushed, it seem Shay Carter just wanted the book to end.
However, I really did not enjoy the book, it took me a while to complete because I did not like Randy’s character and lifestyle. He relived his lack of basic sense day by day.
In summary, I rate this book 2 out of 4 stars.
Although I must reiterate that my stance on this novel; boring, is my subjective opinion, I also almost stopped reading but continued expecting some excitement but never found it. Initially judging from the name of the book, I thought it was a gigolo story but turned about to be about Randy struggling with life.
However, it was a well-written novel that was able to display life in the modern day England with a piece of motive and guidance. The book can be read by any one.
