Review of ‘One for the Road’

One for the Road delves into the mystery of death following Miguel as he tries to solve the secret of the shape-shifting bar, Madam Muertos, and the death festival before the coming dawn.

One for the Road is a short and sweet novel that focuses on making peace with death and reminding readers to live their lives to their fullest.

Meaningful Message

I think the best part of One for the Road was the ending because we discover that Miguel was a life coach in life and in death still carries that passion. We see his passion throughout the narrative; with every person he meets in the death festival, he helps them all make peace with their deaths and move on.

One for the Road was an excellent novel because it was thoughtful in addressing death. Moore reminds readers that while the idea of death and the unknown can be scary, it doesn’t have to be. Death is a natural part of life. That doesn’t make it any less scary, but the idea here is that we can treasure it. We can let go, knowing that there is some peace out there.

The souls that don’t find peace become lost souls, so everyone here tries to help the dead find joy and peace in their lives so they can move on, knowing they lived their lives happily.

Final Thoughts

One for the Road is a short and sweet novel. I wish some of the formatting was better, but I enjoyed the story and its message overall.

Rating: 3 out of 5.
