The Way Inn by Will Wiles
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
As someone who has been to quite a few conferences (not as an exhibitor, just as an attendee or presenter), there is something to the idea of a conference surrogate that's just... intriguing. Seriously intriguing. Of course, to use a service like that would be wrong. But... well... And the bland sameness of chain hotel rooms is something with which I'm familiar, so there's that part of this book I identify with.
Had there been less soliloquizing (if that isn't a word, tough) and fewer descriptive passages, particularly in the last third of the book, it could have been an easy 5 star. But that last third? Sorry. It just needed something - editing? direction? Something, anyway.
