it was amazing

I think this is likely to strike some people as being slow to get to the point and then terribly rushed over the last 15-20% of the story.

I didn't find it that way because I like characters as much or more than the story and the protagonist here is a heck of a character.

He starts out an interesting guy in a somewhat cliched situation and grows organically. That is, it feels like this could actually be someone's life. At one point there is a deus ex machina where the protagonist meets someone and the someone quickly makes a decision that profoundly changes the protagonists life but it didn't feel like a deus ex machina at the time.

Excellent story, easy to lose oneself in.
