Review: The Man Who Wouldn't Stand Up by Jacob M. Appel

The Man Who Wouldn't Stand Up - Jacob M. Appel

Arnold is a botanist living a peaceful life with his wife until the day he takes takes his nephew to a ball game and decides not to stand during the national anthem.His life changes, this episode becomes national headline in which he his portrayed as a racist, accomplice of a pervert ,a terrorist and so on.No one even questions why he didn't stand up thus starts a offbeat escapade.
Author wonderfully expresses how society has some dos and don'ts, if anyone decides to not follow they become an outcast.All this is conveyed in a fun unconventional story.
