The main character is an alcoholic who's been messed up his whole adult life, ever since his mom was killed when we has a kid. He acts really antisocial as an adult and avoids talking to most people. Even breaks up with his girlfriend even though she did nothing wrong. He ends up moving into a dump and his father gets sick and he takes an awful call center job to keep the bills paid.
It's a story all about his struggles to get his life back together and discovering that some of the advice his father gave him was bad. I think a lot of people will relate to the characters. The whole thing is well paced and has a some genuinely interesting twists and developments. Definitely worth a read!
The story moved along and introduced new characters well. Drew's friend Neil, his father, his brother Logan, his coworker Kara, Sierra the stranger who became more... all were done seamlessly and with interest.
With as pathetic as Drew is portrayed, I shouldn't have been surprised at some of the serious moments of sadness that entered the story. And yet, I was. I think that is a hallmark of good writing when something SHOULD have been the obvious next plot turn and yet, it isn't. Plus, the book travels through the aspects of Drew's life in a way that is peppered with things that I jotted down for their simple wisdom or inquiring observation. Things like: "Life is the longest thing you will do" and questions like "Are fleeting moments of pleasure the same thing as happiness?"
All in all, this was a very readable story and I definitely recommend it.
While not typically the type of book I'd choose, I did enjoy it. It's well-written, professionally narrated and a great start for debut author, Brent Jones. I hope to see more from him in the future.
(I was provided a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for my unbiased review. I kindly thank the author for this opportunity!)
