Leon Mason is inspired to write this book after a life-threatening accident. The Life Of TONY MARCEANO is intended to give hope to the hopeless. The book follows the life of Tony Marceano, a boy who seems to have it all; charm, a loving and supportive family and a fantastic physique. Tony is a charmer and gets along with almost everyone he meets. His interests lie in many areas, including football, with his brother, Tyke, as his mentor, and boxing. Tyke could easily pass off as Tony’s best friend because of the relationship between the two brothers.

Things seem to be going well for Tony. He gets the girls, his neighborhood likes him, and he even passes his driver’s test. However, everything is about to change when Tony is involved in an accident that could change his way of life forever. How does Tony survive this? This book follows the life of Tony after the accident, the decisions he makes, and how these decisions affect his life in the long run.

The Life Of TONY MERCEANO contains several positive aspects. It encompasses strong themes such as love, dedication, support, hope, betrayal, murder, change, and turning points. It discusses how one incident can change a person’s life forever. The book is set in the late 1900s and early 2000s, which adds to the book's uniqueness. The Life of TONY MARCEANO is well written and professionally edited, as I did not find a lot of errors in the book. Tony is a well-developed and dynamic character, as the book covers several stages of his personal development. Tony’s character adds a lot of humor to this book. His shocking reactions and decisions make the book more exciting.

The book also shows the effects of friends, peer groups and one's surrounding on one's view of life. We witness Tony’s love for his family, which leads him to do unimaginable things at a later part of this book. The book encourages solidarity, which was displayed by Tony’s family when their sons encountered difficulties. Also, the book covers the lifestyle and actions of particular teenagers.

Although this book contained many positive aspects, I did not appreciate the unnecessary repetition in some areas, which led to the predictability of Tony’s character. However, this was quickly resolved by the author. I rate this book four out of four stars. I did not rate it lower because the author managed to pass his central message across to the readers through a fantastic story. I recommend this book to people suffering from disabilities and generally to all lovers of fiction.

Near-death experiences are said to change a person's life . I can see it's the same for Tony.

Thanks for the intriguing review.

And I thought Tony was part of The Mob! It is always good to see that one's family comes to the rescue. I wish everyone had that haven.

It sounds as if Tony had it all before his accident. I'm curious as to how his life changed afterward. Thanks for a wonderful review!

Tony had it all, but it was his family that supported him in his time of need. I am curious about what happened to this man and how it changed his life. Thanks for the compelling review! This looks good.
