Review - Once Upon A Tag by Anna Adams

Once Upon a Tag

When David, a young French painter, unexpectedly meets Rita, an infamous Parisian street artist, his convictions are shaken to the core during a night he is unlikely to ever forget.
My English Literature teacher just told me recently that a good short story is one that is incomplete. Basically a story that leaves the reader wondering and going "what the hell just happened?!!"
The story plot was pretty good, I liked how it was centered around art and what it means to everyone. The story was well choreographed and I think whoever reads the book will contemplate and ponder upon exactly what the writer wanted you to ponder over. Umm did that make sense? I hope it did...

The characters were funny and relatable. I seriously laughed out loud when I found out that Hugo Boss was David's favorite designer. Oops minor spoiler right here ;)  Rita seemed really cool, and she was one of those arty Parisian chicks and I'm using the word chick because it's exactly how you can describe her! One of those cool leather jacket, bad girls with a blasé attitude. Now you would probably imagine her to be some sort of rock chick, (okay I never ever say that ever, I don't know what's wrong with me today!), but she is actually an artist!!! In her own way. That's what this book is all about, it defines art.

I thought David's character development could have been a little less rushed. It just felt so sudden, when the romantic development took place. I loved the end though it was a total contrast to everything we believed about the characters and I definitely did not see that one coming.
I am looking forward to reading more by Anna, because she is definitely a good writer!

Rating: 4 stars
