Jason Mott's 'Best of Luck': A Tale of Envy and Fate

Rating: 3.5/5 ⭐️

Jason Mott's "Best of Luck," doesn't meander. The story is gripping right from the start. Will has broken into his friend's home in the middle of the night and is having a conversation with him at the barrel of a shotgun.

Will is grappling with cancer and a string of bad luck. He is in pain and barely able to function. He seems to be suffering from hallucinations and keeps talking to himself. Will is somehow convinced that the root of all his misfortunes is his friend, Barry. I saw Will as the aggressor, who because of his illness and misfortunes had finally lost it.

The real twist, however, comes with Barry. The revelation that he might be the actual cause of Will's misfortunes was a curveball I didn't see coming.

Despite the compelling setup and the twist, the ending left me with mixed feelings. I found myself rooting for Will, hoping for some form of revenge or justice. The lack of this resolution, while perhaps more realistic, felt somewhat unsatisfying.

"Best of Luck" is a thought-provoking read that delves into the darker aspects of human nature and fate. Even though the ending left me unsatisfied, the story was interesting. I'd give it a 3.5/5 ⭐️
