My Review

I absolutely loved this book, I laughed, I cried, I gasped, I held my breath thinking “oh no”. Could do many hapless disasters happen to one person? Of course they can. I have no idea which bits of this are true and which aren’t as the author calls it a loosely based memoir.

This is so well written, the story of one man’s journey through life, mistakes made in his youth, but we’ve all been there to some extent, I’m sure most people look back and realise there were things they could have done differently.

The story is gold through the three certificates in life birth, marriage and death. Learning he had got his girlfriend pregnant, when he wasn’t ready and neither was she. To a next relationship with a woman who was violent. Finally escaping that toxic relationship to something better.

The writing flows and is a delight to sit and read, I literally laughed out loud at parts. I love the family relationship, the father had walked out one day leaving the mother on her own with three children. This was tough on Craig vas the oldest he had a job so helped out financially. But as you read on this is a very close family.

I could say so much about this book but I don’t want to give any spoilers away, because it has to be read to really appreciate how good it is. In each chapter there are side stories which add to the main story most of the time in a humorous way. With several twists in parts.

I would like to thank the author for sending me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest, fair and unbiased review. All thoughts are my own and have not been influenced in any way. I look forward to seeing what he writes next.

For me this is an absolute ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I read it in one sitting. I highly recommend this charming read, guaranteed to make you chuckle, possibly shed a tear, but overall a real entertaining read.
