Overview

Sometimes in life, all we want to do is navigate our journey the simple way. At least this is the intention until we begin to interact with our parents, siblings, friends and the world at large. This is when the real living begins….

The Wall is the story of a young man constantly striving to be a better person in what he deems a chronically cynical and unloving world. Constantly irritated and eternally damaged, he struggles against the unpredictable tides of life. Will the all-embracing memories of his mother’s love bring him back to the right side or will the resulting demons from his father’s deeds constrain him to a narrow, myopic and dark ending?

Faced with the impossible realities that continue to hold him down, he tries everything from therapy to the love of an unattainable stranger, all the time meandering through the imagined maze of his dramatic life. As he approaches the crucial watershed of his life, he realizes he has two choices; wither and slowly come to an ignoble end or power through and break down the wall in his way. Told through his own words, the story follows him from the idyllic hometown of Bakers Heath to the heady heights of the neighboring Providence City.

In the midst of the battle for sanity, George Williams finally decides to be the master of his own fortune, reshuffling the cards he was dealt and propelling himself to his desired destiny. To his great satisfaction, he was becoming a man - million miles from the monstrosity that his father was…..or was he?

It took me the better part of a week to read this book, despite it being less than 200 pages. Fascinating in it's way, I'm completely enthralled (if a little perplexed) by the GW character. The plot, though, seemed a little fuzzy, and I have no idea what the title has to do with anything. I'm not sure I'll be re-reading this, but it's not a complete waste of time.

I didn't mind that it obviously was not American, but the horrible grammar was disturbing. Story had potential, but I certainly would NOT recommend the book. Waste of time.

I had to keep referring back to early pages to see if the writer was still talking about the same person or event. Hard to follow and not a convincing enough reason for the ending.
