Top Customer Reviews
As noted in a previous review...I too, was hoping for a little more energy, creative storytelling, and "guy talk", but what we received was 38 chapters with no cohesiveness, forced gambling metaphors, and upper-echelon frivolous disrespect for money with the occasional "Dennis Miller-like" caveat on Monday night football....which as we all know does not work.
I stopped reading this book 4 times, but had a 5 hour flight on the way back, I was so bored I finished it.
Here, I will summarize the book into 3 chapters:
Chapter 1 - My wife left me, I have enough money so I went to Ireland and got drunk daily.
Chapter 2 - My wife is still not with me, I have enough money so I went to Las Vegas, made frivoulous wagers, got drunk a lot, and played golf.
Chapter 3 - My wife is still not with me, I have enough money so I went to Thailand, to a ridiculously expensive and exclusive resort, had sex with a young woman, found my morals and my future ex-wife.
I would have tried to sell this book on Amazon, but I threw it in the trash, as I unpacked.
Rating: One-star (Read only if your interest is strong)
Before reading, I briefly glanced at some of the Amazon reviews; most were only lukewarm. Thinking the other reviews might have been a bit harsh, I gave the book the benefit of the doubt, purchased, and read. Mistake.
With a word like "f@#k" in the title, I expected the book to be a bit more edgy. What the book delivered was much milder- a recently divorced, middle age man going through somewhat of a midlife crises in the form of one year across Ireland, Las Vegas, and Thailand. Sounds promising and full of potential, right? Nothing nearly as provocative as you might expect. Most of the potentially edgy scenarios are glossed over or omitted entirely. To be fair, some of the vignettes are OK, but again, everything is overall very mild.
