He began by sharing poetry. This was a decade after it was etched there, in my glass, the year of their establishment--the name. Letters in gold, and numbers that looked backwards, but in your language translate to 1993. I doubt you even know how often you've seen things that way, backward I mean, but you might know what I'm saying--what I'm speaking about--maybe you even ...more

This books synopsis was intriguing and confusing at the same time for me if that makes sense. I didn’t have anything better to do so I figured I’d give the book a shot. The writing style is a little wandering, the author tends to go off on tangents that may have nothing to do with what is going on in the story, but he does bring it back eventually.

Jason Akley has a very unique style of writing; I don’t quite know how to explain it. It’s a bit quirky, and you can tell his thoughts ramble (which mine do as well) and I think this is what drew me so into this book. I truly enjoyed his style of writing.
As for the actual novel, Rick’s Place, this is the type of book where you love it or hate it. Most people who enjoy the story line have been one of these characters at one time or another. I have and like most other readers we relate to it in a
