No baby is going to have advanced philosophical thoughts about love, "humankind," and the meaning of life. The author has the baby in the womb comparing his experience to "that feeling you get when you open presents..." How on earth would an unborn baby know what a prsesnt is, let alone what it is like to open one???
As an example of the ridiculously adult things this baby thinks, here's a quote expressing his analysis of his emotional state and lack of connection with his dad: "I'm sure that smiling might make [my heart] crack and break into a thousand tiny pieces, letting my spirit seep out, so that I lose my soul. My body is a hollow shell, my face a Chinese opera mask with a painted on smile." Absurd!
There are grammar and puctuation errors, also. Much vulgar language (f-word, sh--, etc,)and blasphemy is used throughout. Not a single character is admirable or likable--the women are long-legged, large-breasted, hard-drinking sluts (some crazy as well), the dad drinks and swears and dates the women, the boy understandably grows up thuggush and also drinks and smokes (starting at age nine).
Horrible, horrible book--and poorly written, too. Thank goodness it was free! I'd ask for my money back otherwise. Now I can just delete it instead.
Full disclosure: I skimmed the middle rather than wasting my time reading it all. The beginng was bad, what I skimmed was worse, and the ending (which I read completely again to be fair) was awful.
Seriously, don't waste time or money on this one.
For those who think that this story couldn't be true, you only have to look to the local and national news to know the life of horrors some children live, even if their lives are brief. Anyone working in social services or welfare services could testify that never-ending horror stories are the lives far too many children live. Anyone working in those same career fields will also tell you that sometimes the parent's poor decision making and problem solving is also a result of their own catastrophic childhoods. I applaud Cindy Vine for tackling a subject matter that makes people uncomfortable.
