When Life Was like a Cucumber by Greg Wyss is a story set in the nostalgic 1970s as the author takes the reader on a trip back in time when things were simpler yet far more chaotic! Jeff Hesse was 24 years old when his house burned down and his wife Jane left him. He thought things would go downhill, but he realized that things weren’t so bad at all. Meeting the gorgeous Isadora Duncan brought a turning point in his life and he realized he was living his life all wrong. And so begins his journey of self-discovery. From Florida to Amsterdam, Jeff learns there is more to living than he thought. He realizes life is far more beautiful than he thought; all he has to do is give it a chance.

When Life Was like a Cucumber is a beautiful story. It is funny yet sad at the same time. Jeff is not particularly a happy-go-lucky kind of guy, but he doesn’t take life seriously as well. I was immersed in the story and Jeff’s progress. Greg Wyss did a good job of introducing Jeff and making sure the reader feels a connection with him. I usually don’t like reading stories written in the first-person narrative, but this one is special. I felt connected with Jeff. I felt his confusion and his elation when he discovered something new. The author added an extra layer of humor and wit to the already charming Jeff to make him irresistible. The dialogues and situations had me smiling, the fast pace of the story had my attention, and the dramatic yet funny situations had me entertained. This novel is brilliant.”
