Who Moved My Cheese: Book Review

The story of Who Moved My Cheese revolves around the lives of 2 mice and 2 little people and emphasizes the difference in approach to their lifestyles. It successfully establishes the difference among different approaches one can take in life with the help of the 4 characters.

The purpose of the Who Moved My Cheese is a simple message about how one needs to keep moving with the changes in life and keep adapting to the present. Consequently, the message is delivered by drawing a comparison between characters who adapt to change, a character that learns to adapt to change, and a character that accepts the past as fate, and denies adapting to change.

Being one of the most famous short stories of all time, according to me, the content is completely worth the hype. Moreover, you will find that the writing is crisp, and deep at the same time.

Apart from giving a piece of life-changing advice, the story of Who Moved My Cheese is interesting and grasps one to want to know what’s coming next. I love reading short stories, but at the same time, I hate cliffhangers.

The story ends on a cliff-hanger which was a bit off-putting for me, as I’d prefer a cliched happy ending any day. But for those who love modern cliff-hanger endings, the story is perfect and gives some insights on driving your life yourself and not worrying about the direction.

This story constantly reminds you to take decisions fearlessly, and not be afraid of the consequences. Hence, the message is nailed deeper into the readers’ minds with the few metaphorical quotes that give deep life lessons.

I’d recommend this as a must-read for everyone who’s got 30 extra minutes.
