I enjoyed this book (although it desperately needs a professional edit) right up until the "Guns" chapter. All of a sudden the writing became contrived and mean-spirited. Through the end of the book the author's attempts at sarcastic humor fell flat,unsophisticated and embarrassing. It seemed to me that the author dispensed with thoughtful writing in desperation to finish the book and I ended up wanting to throw the book away.
