really liked it
Read from November 19 to 20, 2010

There is something innocent about a former wrestler writing fiction. Something kind, unexpected and altogether surreal, but one thing I can say is that Mick Foley does it with some grace and enjoyment. Make no mistake this book is fucked up beyond belief, but it is and was an enjoyable fucked up. A cringe inducing, jaw dropping, eye popping out of their heads, fucked up. The writing is not impossible. The story is easy enough to understand. The reality of the story... well, life can be fucked up sometimes, and that is exactly what Foley shows here. I say two thumbs up for the story and the balls it took to write it, and a little of a teak downward of the thumb for the simplicity, and ease in which the story was told. It was not picture perfect, it was not a happy ending, but it was an enjoyable read and it did have some sense of hope embedded in the ending. As a reader I like that. As a reader I think I need a little of that. Good stuff.
