"Daniel Shortell is a very talented writer, evoking every emotion he wants the reader to feel."

~Lori Tater, GOODREADS REVIEW

"Shortell’s abilities go far beyond mastery of the complex mechanics of the English language. Where’s Unimportant features well-defined characters from literally around the world. He describes their action and their dialog so well, I feel like I recognize them."

~Scott Bury, WRITTEN WORDS

"...a very thought-provoking, yet at times amusingly sarcastic book."

~David King, BOOKS AND THINGS

"It is a book that invites introspection and discussion...[the ending] is explosive!"

~Dana Burgess, LET'S BOOK IT

"This thought-provoking book empowers the reader to step back and reflect on their own decisions, the direction of their life, and what it all means."

~James Wallace Birch, DTTLA

"...this is similar to a modern day Babbit (Sinclair Lewis) where the middleman’s life on the outside seems perfect, but as you learn the workings of the inner character, far from it."

~Coral Russell, ALCHEMYOFSCRAWL

"Where's Unimportantis an important debut. It is very much a novel for our times...Book is highly amusing but at the same time shows the cruelty and madness of modern society and people that are actors in it, conforming with its new norms...Hope to read more from Daniel Shortell."

~Johan, GOODREADS REVIEW

"The author is a craftsman. His subtle comparison of what he had seen in the developing countries with what he sees every day in New York City definitely provokes thoughts."
