"Entertaining, refreshing, unsettling and absorbing, and surprisingly perhaps, a thinking person’s book."

My life feels quite boring, but I’ve enjoyed Oliver’s ride. My heart goes out to the writer and the crazy lives he has touched.
What did I just read?
This book is awful. The writer is all over the place, just stream of consciousness drivel. He’s not even capable of keeping his lies straight from paragraph to paragraph. I could excuse the lies if it were well written and entertaining, but it’s not. Your brain has to work too hard to keep track of whatever it is he’s trying to convey. If I had paid for this, I would have been angry. Hell, I didn’t pay for it, and I’m still angry.
