Life is not a roller coaster that only goes up. It dips, turns, and eventually comes down. This unpredictability is evident in the personal experience of Kon Georgiou. A self-proclaimed rebel who loves to take life by its horns and experience it to the fullest. Memoirs of a Rebel is an exciting novel, as the author walks the reader through his past life that weighs heavily on his present. The themes of the book include violence, drug abuse, sex, death, and love.

Memoirs of a Rebel contains details of the experiences, adventures, and life journeys of the author. In four chapters, Kon Georgiou succinctly weaves out a garment of stories using simple words. The story begins with a prologue that brings the writer's state of confinement into the spotlight. The author's thoughts, emotions, and immediate environment were perfectly outlined for one's consumption. The image painted begs for a series of questions. Who is Kon Georgiou, and what made him a rebel? What chain of events led to his confinement? Read Memoirs of a Rebel to obtain answers to these questions.

The author's personality shines through his words. His curious and observant nature was perfectly portrayed in how he narrated his stories and relayed his experiences. He writes straightforwardly and plots his sequence accordingly. The novel's diction was simple to the extent that the slang employed gave the story a more relatable and comfortable experience. The author can undoubtedly hold the reader's attention with his satisfying narration skills.

The attention to detail in every aspect of the book enriched the pleasure derived from reading the book. Every little thing that led to the grand finale placed at the end of the book was given an adequate explanation. The simple choice of words and step-by-step arrangement of unfolding events made the story easier to comprehend, while the plot's originality topped it all.

To adequately explain the chain of events that transpired, the author fixated an ample number of unnecessary stories and characters that did not sufficiently contribute to the main aim of the story. There were also fractures, abruptly ending stories that would have enriched the book if they were properly expanded on. I noticed several grammatical and typographical errors during my course of reading. For these reasons, I rate the book 3 out of 4 stars.

I recommend the book to a mature audience interested in crime fiction. Conclusively, despite the already gloomy ending, the author did a great job of giving others the opportunity of learning from his mistakes.

I would like to know about the protagonist of the book. True stories always carry a unique charm and this one also seems to be fulfilling that very uniqueness. Thanks for the review.
