That said, and the reason I give this 3 stars, is the life of this young man was at times insightful. I won't say hopeful because I don't really feel as if hope ever came across in the writing. I also won't say healing because it feels as if in the book Jessie goes from being "broken" to better without much talk about why or what really helped him.
And how can you say you've attached to certain people throughout your life and then later in life you say this is the first time you've attached to someone? It felt very narcissistic. Maybe that's the point though. This kid couldn't think of others because he was so obsessed with himself. However it was meant to come across that is what I took away.
I would have preferred if the book might have delved deeper into the young mans healing. If he's even healed. I can't tell. I mean he's obviously "better" and functioning in society but we get to the end of the book and no real comment on his son. His life is so happy with one of his kids missing. I mean I don't expect him to be miserable but not to even mention if that was something he tried to change. Maybe he did and I missed it because the writing was so convoluted. Just felt like even having a child was somewhat of a superficial event for this guy to just "forget" it. It honestly felt as if his "happy" life description at the end was him trying to convince himself. I'm not going to say it is as I don't know the guy but it is how I read it.
I hope I'm wrong. Maybe a good proofing could have made this book relay a different message.
