Quality of Quantity (Redemption of an American Expatriate) by James J Houts is a fiction novel that will appeal most to adults, but some mature young adults may also find it intriguing. Quality of Quantity is a bit like watching a train crash; you know it is something sad and yet you cannot pull your gaze away from it. The author uses a somber tone to pull the reader in and to explore the concepts of love, loss, regret, and ageing. The narrative is designed to not just open a person’s eyes to the reality of life, but to cause a person to question themselves, their lives, and their choices.
Quality of Quantity is filled with metaphors. The first sentence of the book begins with metaphors; it reads “Time may be a river, but memory is a meteor shower, a staccato beat of energetic impacts.” The book is filled with language like this that just flows beautifully on the page and in the mind. Every single word is chosen with flawless precision for the maximum effect on the reader. My favorite aspect of the book was the formatting of each chapter with how each chapter occurred at a different time in the main character’s life; it truly allowed me to feel like I could understand the character without having to know everything - instead, the writing style allowed me to fill in the blanks using my own imagination.
