Findin9 H2OM3: Son of Man by Jameson B. Grant is a tale of the author's journey through life and the experiences that accompany that journey.
Raised by a loving mother, aunt, and grandmother (Jameson's angels) and taught the love of God from an early age, he grew up with a thirst to experience life and a burning curiosity. This curiosity led him to travel and explore. Having lived such a full life, Jameson shares his story in this book.
Being a strong lover of music and movies, the author included many links to some of the songs and movies referenced in this book, making it easier for readers who would love to listen or learn about them.
Through this book, the author conveys that we should find our purpose and stay true to it. Everybody should experience doing what they love and live life to the fullest. Exploring and seeing the world shouldn't be left till retirement; it is something that we should prioritize together with our faith in God.
His devotion to his faith is admirable. He used this book to reveal to others how that faith helped and shaped him.
The author was very open about his life and experiences, sharing his mistakes and triumphs. There weren't too many positive lessons because the author seemed unconvinced that he had made that many mistakes and was sure that he had done exactly everything he was supposed to do.
I had some concerns with the author sharing information that might be considered sensitive about real-life people. Some were quite well-known, and the author did not censor their names, images, or private details. There was no way of knowing if he had or hadn't gotten permission from these people to share their stories.
The book lacks cohesiveness. This is an autobiography, with the author imparting some of the knowledge he has gotten over time. They are diverse and have no apparent connection to the story, each other, or reality. The book gets more unhinged as it progresses. An example is the statement: "Death Star+Disaster+Easter+Decipher+Disciple+Dis+kneel+Land? =DISNEYLAND." Here, the author correlates Star Wars, Jesus Christ, and Disneyland. However, it isn't coherent.
I found many errors in the book; it should be re-edited, as the errors were enough to confuse the reader. There were inconsistencies in people's names, several sentences were joined together with no commas or full stops to separate them, and some paragraphs were repeated unnecessarily.
I found the author's story interesting. I'd rate it 3 out of 5 stars. I deducted two stars for the incoherence and poor editing. I'd recommend it to people interested in autobiographies.
