it was ok

Um..Audio narrators, 1 star. Story, 3.5 stars. Afterword, minus 5 stars. The novel did have some interesting points. But it was overshadowed by the audio narration which seemed like it was recorded in a basement using a microphone from 1982. And the afterword.. I’m sorry, but the author makes himself sound so so so pathetic by inferring, and simply stating, that he grew up a dork and now he’s cool because he’s a swinger and now has had more sexual partners than the cool kids from his high school and college have. He basically says how cool he feels he is, is based solely on the number of sexual partners he achieves. He’s admittingly telling people he’s using a high number of partners to counterbalance and outweigh feelings of inferiority and insecurities ingrained in him during teenage/college years by having less partners than, what he calls, ‘the cool kids’. Psych word for that is overcompensating...
I’m not bashing the topic. I’m bashing the author’s motives and his afterward. It’s like he’s stuck in the mental age of his traumas. Which, I guess, typing this out, I realize that does happen. Sad...
