This book was not at all what I expected. Based on the synopsis, I anticipated a novel which dealt with the issue of domestic violence from the male perspective. I was intrigued by this concept as this is a little dealt with issue that is quite serious. Unfortunately it was a very small part of the story. Can a one time incident be considered domestic violence? While he did stay with the woman after one incident of physical violence the author did not really go into their relationship to know if the character was being abused emotionally or verbally. It came across more that he was just afraid of being alone so he stayed in a relationship he was not happy in.

As the story progressed Colin simply came across as a selfish man that had little respect for women. His character was largely superficial and not generally very likable in my opinion. He never appeared to be content with any woman he was with which, again, just made the character undesirable to me. I found it impossible to connect to any of the characters.

If you are looking for a story that deals with the horrors of domestic abuse this is not the book for you. If you are looking for a story that chronicals a mans journey through relationships from college forward than you may enjoy this book.

I'm certainly glad that I did not shell out any money for this book......it was a real disappointment!!! I had anticipated a serious book about domestic violence which is a very serious problem in this country and abroad. However, this book dealt very little with the actual abuse and it's consequences. Mainly one episode of a little women hitting the upper body of a man much larger than her and one incident of a slap to his face by another woman which I thought he genuinely deserved (the former being actual domestic violence, but having little to do with the actual plot of the story).The main character is a complete fool and disrespectful and judgmental to the point of being completely unlikable. It does deal with emotional and psychological abuse, but this situation is strictly brought on by the man himself against himself. He is a stupid, lying, insecure, over-sexed man-child. He continually devalues women and sees them strictly as a sex machine living totally for whatever he desires of them. One minute he is full of self-doubt about who he is and what he wants and the next moment he is some overblown, self-absorbed individual with an ego the size of someone much more successful then he will ever become. His worst enemy is himself and the plot becomes more and more boring with every turn of the page. I could not associate with or even come to the point of liking any of the characters; they all were shallow, uninteresting people with no depth or meaning to their lives. They all just existed from day to day in their tiny little minds.
I guess if you like the idea of an over-sexed man-child who uses women like a piece of meat to satisfy his insecurities and lives a boring existence...then this book is for you. Definitely not for me!!!

City of Angels and Discontent by Sean Overman

This is the story of a young man Colin. His father dies while Colin is young and his Mother raises him alone. As he journeys on life as a young man he finds himself in an abusive relationship. Only he is the victim, which most would find a rarity. Colin learns how to cope with his life, he is faced with career choices, in relationships with women and with his family.

A fascinating story , with an original and believable plot. I did like Colin, he seems a bit misguided at times, but overall is likable. The choices he makes are not ones I may have chose, but watching him come to terms with his life and who is is was compelling. Overall I liked the story and would recommend to readers (18+).

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
