Loved it! 😍

Follow Five Friends on their journey to become a Fixer of all of life's problems. But will it cause more problems for them along the way?

In Fixer we meet Meghan, who has just been let go from her job and is starting a new relationship with Diego. Diego is a software developer and is really into Meghan – he even helps her get a job at his company. But Diego and his best friend from college, Kari, have been spending almost every moment of free time working on their own tech start up app. Kari's girlfriend, Kira (yeah, that's not confusing at all to keep up with throughout the book!) lends a hand at times, as does another one of Diego's friends, Ravi. They all need to decide if they want to be "all in" with this company – if they believe in the concept and whether it will solve many of life's problems. We get a good amount of background of all the characters to understand what grounds them, and what other conflicts they may have in leaving their day jobs behind and taking a leap of faith with what Diego and Kari are trying to build together.

I found this book to be a quick read, and I instantly felt attached to all of the characters, even if some of them were a bit annoying at times. I'm always interested in reading fiction about tech and startups and the likes because as a software engineer myself, I'm interested in seeing how in depth things will be described. I thought this book had a good balance between not having information that would go over most people's heads, but still efficiently explaining everything that was going on with these friends, their lives and the project they were all trying to get off the ground. So even if you are not as tech savvy as I may be, this book is still a good quick read that will probably leave you thinking about yourself, how you use your free time, and your relationship with your friends and family. It is almost six stories in one: the main plot of the characters dealing with Silicon Valley and getting this start up going, and then five sub plots – one for each friend.
