On meeting Jason, MC Bride befriends Jason (seems there are legitimate channels by which he could do this without being considered a pervert) and finds reason to live: to help Jason fulfil his bucket list of boy things that he would like to do before the inevitable claims him.
There is, of course, quite the generation gap: Mc Bride is not at home with the Net and he finds the manners of his new buddy quite obnoxious a lot of the time. But a deep rapport builds between them, enough so that MC Bride abets with Jason in his plan to star in his own championship game.
It is perhaps a foregone conclusion that things
do start to go wrong, as MC Bride's capabilities as such an old man get called more and more into question. Mc Bride gets the reader routing for him as the underdog in dealing with a difficult father, estranged grandson, and finally more authorities with the Best Interests of both child and geriatric in mind, however spirited each might be.
All very heart- warming stuff. My main quibble, however, is with the ending. Is is just me, or isn't the ending somewhat pathological? The little boy gets a heart at the 11th Hour, but only at the expense of the tragedy that facilitates this? At the very least, it did seem a little pat.
Those who enjoy human dramas with bittersweet endings should, however, be delighted with this story.
To be able to write about such sensitive topics whikst leaving the reader with a great feeling of hope is the work of a true wordsmith.
Such a well constructed story that as its reader, felt it all to be entirely true. A story I am sure to recommend and to read again in the future. I will be searching for other titles by this author for sure. Thank you.
I gave up the story less than half way through which is annoying because at £4.99 it was very dear.
But the emotion in the end is the real magic - this story got to me in a way that hasnt happened for a while.
Nicely done, Mr Siple.
