This is a true story about a man in his twenties doing well in his profession and then he does a "young and stupid" thing and loses everything. He has to move into his parents' home and gets depressed. He decides to go on a months long holiday and does the same stupid thing as before landing him in danger of imprisonment, or worse. The story is a bit compelling and certainly relate-able if you've ever done anything dumb in your youth. Since the main character didn't learn from his first, or second, or third mistake, I found it hard to empathize with him. The writing style is very pedantic. The story is worth a read if you can relate to this person's plight.
The story, in a sense could rival a James Bond movie as Bond runs the full gamut of success, failure, and escape in a relatively short time span. Something like two months. Hey, that's pretty impressive.
I am not one to question an authors work, but in this case, if David was charged with manslaughter and arson, why would the Spanish government not pursue a fleeing fugitive? I did a few searches for fires in Marabella during the early nineties with no results. Odd. Perhaps the Spanish authorities were a bit embarrassed that a foreigner escaped with such ease.
That aside, the writing style will keep your attention as you attempt to figure out how in the world he is going to get out of his predicament. How would we react to being imprisoned in a foreign country with no money and no way to contact the outside world? Too say the least, that's a scary premise all on its own. When David sees an opportunity to elude his captors, he chooses the only option available: escape. Should he have stayed and faced the music (as his father suggests) or should he bolt for freedom knowing he could be captured at anytime which will only result in additional charges being levied against him and a possible life sentence? Glad I didn't have to make that choice.
Unlike many of the other reviews discussing his depths of drunkenness, let us remember, he is in his late twenties and enjoying the fruits of his labors. I know people well into their thirties and forties who were still living that lifestyle. This is an age where we considered ourselves being indestructible and the hangovers are easily discarded the next day. I don't condemn him for his lifestyle choices at that age. He was after all, having fun.
Overall, a quick entertaining and engaging read.
