We all reach a point in our life (sometimes several times) where we wonder what the point of our job is. Why we get up every day, put on our work clothes, and drive to a job where we are asked to attend meaningless meetings, so we can create useless products. We look around, and wonder... What would we do if we didn't... care? Or maybe because we do care, about what we are doing with our life. We look into our past and yearn for missed opportunities, both careers and love.

I downloaded the Kindle sample for this book, and read that part quickly. It started out at what I thought was a strange place, a carnival with a young kid trying to catch the attention of, oops, no spoilers here. My curiosity got the best of me, and I purchased the full book.

I wasn't disappointed with my investment. It was truly a page turner. The prose is almost breathless at times, which sets the pace for the story. I enjoyed the writing style in this book. The author does a great job in bringing the protagonist to life, and placing you next to him as he blunders through his life-changing experiences. There are so many great one liners. "The sun, which felt significantly stronger than it had 10 minutes earlier, hit me like good news on a Monday." It's hard to pick my favorite. "better to come from manual labor than laboring over a manual."

The pace of the book slows a little near the end, but you'll be treated to a few bad song plants as a reward. The book will end leaving you feeling like ... oh, no spoilers here.

A great read by a very talented up and coming author. I look forward to reading more of his work.
