A Boring Book by Seth McDonough
Imagine the world’s most dull character with the heart of a protagonist. A Boring Book is a romantic comedy of manners featuring low-charisma John Smith who enjoys observing and trying to help fellow earthlings who don’t necessarily realize he’s there. Set to the tune of conversations of which John is not always a part, A Boring Book stars many flavours of personality and social foibles from the delightful to the spiteful. While the book is a grand teaser of humans, the tone of the tale is fun and hopeful as it seeks to keep its readers company as they are impeded in their own lives by their own collection of silly fellow travelers.
