My review of Gravity
Gravity is the third installment of Joshua Edward Smith’s Entropy series. The story dives deep into the relationship of Sir and Lisa as they have developed over the first two novels. Sir’s search for happiness, outside of the confines of marriage, takes him down a road of self-actualization. He arrives in a place ready for acceptance of a partnership but with a deeper understanding of mutual exclusivity; he is finally able to sooth his own restless soul. Lisa on the other hand has not quite completed her metamorphosis into the beautiful woman Sir believes her to be. Through continued self-discoveries Lisa is able to grow in Gravity.
Joshua Edward Smith pens the Entropy series with a beauty and grace unlike others in the genre. While initially his diction and structure choices appear simplistic, the connotative derivatives underneath are far more sophisticated and complex. His thematic developments of communication, compromise, and willingness to hold a partner to a specific set of standards by which they both crave and desire is the glue which holds this final installment together. Gravity is the perfect ending to finding one’s ultimate path to true love and respect.
