it was amazing
bookshelves: october-reading

Three brothers three musketeers mixed race. They talk of their experiences and coming of age, their embarrassments, their fears, their joys and pain. Life in it's truest forms no fake facades, fairy tale stories. Souls that try to survive and be happy against the odds against prejudices and the concrete jungle. The family ups and downs father drinking, father hitting on ma, mum and dad just plain in love. The joys of brotherhood makes you want to be young again surrounded by siblings. 
This story was a heart warming treat brutal and a true portrayal of many families, one that would touch your heart and stay with you for a time. This is one story I will be revisiting again some time.
