I did not really enjoy the narrators voice. I thought that distracted from the story.

It’s hard to understand how people do what they do. I guess it helps to know someone’s background to understand them a bit better. But since we can’t know everyone’s background, it is best to save our judgement.

This book needs to be edited as there were misspellings and random punctuation throughout the book. I found this to be distracting. I believe this to be more of a collection of short stories than a cohesive novel, although the author ties the first and third parts together at the end. I did not enjoy the abuse subject matter.
