Absolutely loved this book. So full of heartfelt emotion and I felt everything that the character was going through. This shows true insight, passion, and belief in what they're writing. It kept me intrigued from the start right up to the very end. I cannot wait to see what more works this author has to offer. I would highly recommend this book to everyone I know.

Reviewed by Benjamin Ookami for Readers' Favorite Timothy's world of participating in any form of sports came to a sudden end after an ill-fated practice session of soccer. He could've given up right then and there, but his competitive spirit brought him back to the world of sports in no time at all, participating in "non-contact sports" such as cross country running and track. Unfortunately for Timothy, the thing that we call life would have plenty more negatives running his way. His brother, who did a lot of wrongs and hardly got punished for it, angered him just because of it. Timothy somehow found himself spending three months in jail, and after he became a free man again, a promising business venture was quickly eradicated. For Timothy, overcoming life's obstacles was the ultimate competition to win. To truly relate, enjoy, and understand Timothy Patrick's biography Life...A Fickle Mistress, you'll have to be one of those people that experiences one piece of bad luck after another. To the man and woman who know only the good variety of luck, each obstacle that life places in Timothy's way might be a tad comedic. Raised by foster parents, the stuff he experiences throughout his life is bad, but it's not the badness of it that made me feel sorry for the author, but the amount of times that the author has had things go terribly wrong for him. With clear and comprehensible writing, he paints this picture of a being abundantly diddled by life. I recommend it to readers who often wonder about the fairness of life.
