I can definitely understand this not being a book for everyone. I couldn't see the author telling his story any other way, but that doesn't change the offensiveness of some of the parts. Thank you for stopping by and for sharing your thoughts.

Great review Christina. I find Oliver's life fascinating. He seems to have gone through a lot, but it seems a positive mind set helped him sail through.

I really want to know more about Oliver but the strong language puts me off a little, very good review ☺

Thank you! It can be a bit much, and in other settings I typically do not enjoy the use of harsh language. So, I definitely see where you are coming from. Thank you for your thoughts!

I like how down-to-earth the author is and his upfront honesty about the contents of his novel. It takes a lot of courage to share the unsavory parts of one's life in the manner of writing a book. Thanks for the easy flowing review as well, Christina.

Thank you for your thoughts. I agree; it does take courage to share those parts of your past in a book.

Excellent review! I am somehow very drawn to the title.I think it is a comment about life in general how things work out better than you expect despite your own foolishness or ignorance.

Well, for me, this is a great writer. He is using more of himself to unveil or get to show how bad choice would affect an individual.

Other than that, he comes out original in his writing.

The follow of ideas is smooth. The build up well connecting.
