Terrific read. I felt like I was on a very fast-paced emotional roller-coaster. I so loved and related with the main character Jack Hopkins and -- much like the Red Badge of Courage -- often wonder how I would fare in the face of war, evil, hatred. Loved it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Mr. Torres' first novel is a compelling, heart wrenching, often tear-jerking adventure that culminates in a larger than life climax, complete with larger than life, vivid, and most importantly, memorable characters. Jack Hopkins is the ideal slacker; preferring to spend his days sleeping and shooting hoops with the local neighborhood kids, but when his good fortune runs out he's thrust into the opportunity of a lifetime, and the life he never imagined. Along the way he meets memorable characters, runs into hilarious shenanigans, and discovers the true meaning of life. This is a definite must read. I look forward to Mr. Torres' writing career with great interest.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
