I could tell right away that I was going to love this book. Only ten pages into it, I had already experienced several out-loud moments. ¿Ha ha,¿ ¿wow,¿ ¿cool,¿ and ¿holy cow!¿ are just a few of the reactions I had. The rest was equally enjoyable. Lawrence puts it all out on the table, dealing with many universally human topics: love, making love, hate, trust, lies, honesty, admiration, failure, rebuilding oneself, sweet revenge, the need to be loved, the need for acceptance, the need to be alone, hating the past, hating the present, hating the future, mourning the past, accepting the present, and optimistically looking forward to the future. It¿s all there and more. Revealing intimate pieces of himself throughout the book, Lawrence entices the reader further and further in. Whether you find the pieces to be interesting, wonderful, appalling, intelligent, or a slew of other adjectives, ALL of them are captivating. While at first you may be analyzing the piece at hand, or thinking about the author and what you think you might know of him, what eventually happens is that you end up analyzing yourself. As each of the pieces resonated within me, I was invariably drawn to one of four conclusions: 1) I am like the character in this piece 2) I want to be like the character in this piece 3) I definitely do not want to be like the character in this piece (but wonder if I am) or, 4) I am not sure if I should be like this character¿there are benefits, but they may not be worth the risk. After that, I usually ended up thinking about how and why I reached that conclusion. Whatever the result, the fact that Lawrence had me constantly analyzing myself with regards to each piece means that he did his job and he did it well. I absolutely recommend this book as you will definitely enjoy it and learn more about yourself in the process.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
