Thomas Henson's tale is short, broken into issues, of which there are thirteen in all. Accustomed to being the upper-crust he finds it deplorable when circumstance reduces him to crumbs.
It's humorous, at times laugh out loud funny, but overall it is a tale of great wisdom. You may laugh at Thomas and his delusions, but we all know him, yes we have known him so well, which is why we laugh along with his neighbor.
You see what Thomas is, is an adult brat. He's unkempt, thinks he's highbrow, thinking he is above the regulations plaguing the rest of us. Instead of elevating his status this instead makes him a social pariah, the scarecrow who smells dodgy and is even dodgier in demeanor.
It's a tale of arrogant woe, a lesson to be read to teens, lest one day they become Thomas themselves. But alas this kind of wisdom is the kind earned to be learned.
I'd love to see this as a full blown novel because the writing style is delightful. It's upbeat, tongue in cheek, with a naughty grin. It's like having Yoda on one arm and Gandalf on the other, having a peek inside a crystal ball, throwing words of wisdom to the four winds and watching them scatter in places old Thomas can't see them, instead treading carelessly over the wisdom that could save him from himself.
We can be our own worst enemies, he's proof. But what a delight to read. Totally five stars. This really would make a great ebook to add to that kindle for your teen for xmas, and for your disgruntled adult children too. Thomas' parents never abused him, not at all, but then perhaps a life of privilege is in itself abuse, because it isolates your children, leaving them ill prepared for the reality of life when 'fate' blows cold.
