it was amazing
Read from July 18, 2010 to August 25, 2011

This book is for lack of a better word, inspiring. Don't get me wrong it is probably one of the most depressing books I've ever read. It took me over a year to finish the book, I would put it down for several months. The book is told entirely in the head of Bob Slocum and person who at first you feel disgusted by and later you identify with in all the wrong ways. He is a man, a real man who is almost if not fully realized. Something does happen, I would pretend to tell you what that is but it wouldn't mean anything. Only after spending all that time inside his head, All that time understanding exactly the kind of man he is can you truly grasp what happens. My mother introduced this book to me after waiting 20 years to find someone else to read it and share the knowledge. I asked her what happened and she wouldn't tell me. I only understand why she couldn't after reading the book myself. Something does happen, you look at the world in a whole new way.
