Book Review: Three Cheers for Chunky by Mike Ronny

Title: Three Cheers for Chunky
Author: Mike Ronny
Genre: Short story
Format: Kindle
Published by: Amazon Digital Services, Inc.
Buy it: Amazon

Chunky plans to spend junior year of high school goofing off with his friends, watching soap operas with his Grandma, and stuffing his face with as much candy as humanly possible. But then, as a joke, a classmate signs him up for the track team. To everyone’s surprise, Chunky accepts this challenge – well, sort of.

I love reading short stories because I'm always interested to see if the writer will be able to capture the reader with only a few pages. Mike Ronny was able to do just that - and more.

Three Cheers for Chunky is an easy fun read with a lovable bumbling hero, Chunky. What I liked about this story is that Mike Ronny didn't waste a single page; he managed to introduce the main character fully and build the story from there. I liked Chunky's transformation because he was still Chunky all throughout only better! In the end, Mike Ronny leaves readers with something to ponder on. The ending's something... intriguing. The kind that's not that clear but you don't want over-explained because it's perfect that way. It'll surely leave a lasting impression on you.

Another great short story written by a very talented author. ;-)

Mike Ronny writes ebooks that are like bedtime stories for grown-ups: entertaining and funny, at times suspenseful or poignant. (That's what he hopes his stories are like, anyway.)
