The book was sponsored on Facebook. I recognized the author's name from a science fiction I had read and loved by the same man. The book was free and so on a whim I downloaded it. One night, not able to sleep, I needed something to read. The paperback I was currently reading was out of question so I decided to give this eBook a try. No harm done, each chapter was written as a mini anecdote. I could put it aside any time I wanted. Yeah…right…
To make this short, I liked what I read. It reminded me of the things my friends and I did in our youth. (Yes, the stupid things we could do sometimes. I'm surprised we're still alive.) Each story brought back some of my own memories. I could almost picture the author in these precarious, perilous acts.
This short book may not be for everyone, but if you like stories told in a friendly manner (the author is literally talking to you), you might want to try it. Short and quick, not every tale will make you laugh your heart out but they will surely leave you with a smile.
So now, why do I start saying it would be hard to review? It's simple. I DON'T READ memoirs. How can I give a five to a genre I swore I wouldn't touch with a forty feet long pole? The other reason is that while I loved it and since, remember, I don't read memoir, I have no idea of how people who do would react to this book. But this review is mine and about my own tastes so…
Favorite quote (I almost choked laughing reading this one): She also appeared to be allergic to teeth, as most had vacated the premises.
