did not like it
bookshelves: first-reads

I really wanted to like this book. I won it here on Goodreads through the first-reads giveaway, and I was hoping to be able to sing its praises.

Unfortunately, I have two pet peeves in this life. The first is stupid people who repeatedly make bad decisions. The second is unnecessary cursing. This book was loaded with both.

Dale, the main character, is a worthless troll. It was impossible to find ANYTHING to respect about this man, and therefore I truly didn't care what happened to him... or his awful father, brother, and sister-in-law. As for his wife, well... no well-educated professional woman I know would stand for his antics and lack of support (financially, emotionally, and parent-wise).

That all ended 'well' for this idiot was totally unbelievable.
