Burn Zones by Jorge P. Newbery is a novel that seeps motivation. Jorge Newbery is a man who built himself from the ground up and became a successful man in real estate. But after an ice storm, his success crumbles before his very eyes. He then has to choose to work hard and save his business or give up and go back to being who he was before - a high school drop out. Rather than start over, he decides to put in the extraordinary effort to become a winner instead of a loser.
What I liked most about the story was the overall message. You know there's going to be a downfall as it's right in the summary, but even knowing that you see all the ways that he made himself successful while he was growing up. He was willing to put in the work no matter how young he was, and he never gave up. He kept working hard and saving up money, even getting an actual job as young as 13 years of age. There were times he took risks, and the amount he took bit him in the ass later on, but he wouldn't have been successful without those risks. The moral of the story is to work hard for what you want in life, and no matter how hard it seems to be, nothing is impossible. Jorge Newbery is an example of this moral because even when all hope seemed to be lost, he kept moving forward and wouldn't let anything stop him.
What I disliked most about the story was how awkward it was when Jorge was buying the ice cream trike. That is a pretty weak reason, but I can't find much to dislike about the story. It was to the point and had a nice pace. I wish I had more to say on the matter, but it was a very detailed story that made sense.
This story is a good reminder that if you can put your mind to it, you can pretty much do anything. I think the audience that needs to read this should consist of people wanting to start a business or succeed in life. I suggest only adults and mature teenagers read this book as other age groups most likely won't be able to understand it.
My rating for the story is 4 out of 4 stars because I had a great experience while reading it, and I learned a lot. It should also be noted that I didn't see any typos or mistakes in grammar while reading. It seems that the story was very well-edited.
