it was ok
Read from March 12 to 22, 2012

This book screamed characters in raw form. A book laced with the idea that it’s about nothing and yet so coated with truth and emotion. A book showing a raw portrayal of life, without the need for any extensive foul language. A pictured painted by a person who understood the era better than one writing of the 70’s could have now a days without being in it. It truly shows how the rush of life and emotion can act against you in some years while sparing you in the previous ones. I enjoyed how you felt as though the main character was telling you a story from 30 years ago without that being written in the script. It felt like a story from a grandfather that is completely entertaining, though you can’t figure out how or why he is even telling you it. All you know, is you will never forget it, and you only understand the meaning until your old and recollecting your past.
