A good memoir of sorts of a few characters pursuit of happiness.
There was some nice and poignant moments that readers could relate to.
This started off well and then drifted into more flat land with no taking off, I think it would have been more captivating if it was shortened. There seemed to be no real middle or end no drive to the story to keep you in the story. As I came back to the novel and started picking up where I left off from I gradually started to have a disdain for the characters and didn't care anymore for the story. This story could appeal to many readers but it lost my intrigue as time passed by.
