I will say I did make it through the book. But about 2/3 of the way into the story an unexpected fact came to light after one of the characters died. This fact had never been mentioned before the book and it kind of through me out of the story. I kept going back trying to figure out when this fact came to light. (Sorry for being so vague but I don't want to give any spoilers for those of you who choose to read this.) The story in my opinion went down hill about half way through the book. But I did make it to the end so I guess that is saying something.
There were some punctuation errors that were distracting but not too distracting. I think the book needs a bit more editing. (And some proofreader to catch that factual error unless the author was trying to throw it in as a "surprise" revelation that made no sense.) Anyway, I did enjoy the book overall but it didn't make me want to read anything else by Donald Wells.
While there is love and romance there is huge stupidity as well. I can't believe the main character continually makes one truly colossal blunder after another. It's just to much to take. I am 2/3 done now and will finish it just out of stubbornness. It started out good. I probably should stop, but I wont.
Read at your peril, be prepared to be disgusted, at the decisions and actions of the hero.
Johnny has two dreams. One is to marry Felicia, and the other is to develope an engine that gets 100 miles to the gallon of gas. We follow Johnny's life to find out if either, or both, come true. This isn't the easiest story I have ever read and I don't pretend to understand some of the decisions Johnny makes in his life, but I like Johnny. He is a good but flawed man just trying to keep his dreams alive.
The author has done a very good job of telling Johnny's story. I kept trying to put my Kindle down to do chores, but found myself running back to read a little more. I will reread this book again because I rushed through it the first time trying to find out what happens to Johnny, and if his dreams come true. I think that this is the hallmark of an author who can tell a good story. Some books I can savor while reading. This one wasn't one of those. This book had me so invested in wanting Johnny's dreams to come true that I couldn't savor it. I had to hurry to find out what happened on the next page, in the next chapter.
The author gifted me this book, but I would have been happy to buy it. It is a wonderful story of a young man who grows up just trying to make the best decisions he can while following his dreams. Johnny truly tries to be "the fix-it-man" and I think he succeeds. I really enjoyed this book. It is a keeper and one I will be rereading and recommending.
