I recently went to my local book store and asked for some recommendations. The guy working that day was great. He gave me several recommendations, many I had already read and loved. One of the books I hadn’t read was Something Missing. A novel about Martin, a thief who takes his “job” very seriously. He also has a different take on stealing from his “clients”, he only takes what won’t be noticed, like toilet paper. Despite being a thief, Martin is a good person, who cares for others, including his clients. Martin is socially awkward and yearns for deeper relationships with people. His career choice, however, limits his ability to be honest and get close to others.
Surprisingly, this book is fun and humorous, and even suspenseful. I instantly loved Martin and his quirky mannerisms. I wanted him to find what he was looking for, and found myself unable to put the book down toward the end. All in all a fun and entertaining read.
