My Name is Hardly is a story told with guts and true life emotion. I felt like a fly on the wall as some of the scenes played out. There is an honesty that comes across. The sadness, happy moments, torture, and heartbreak felt authentic. I don't know how words can be written in this manner without it coming from somewhere deep in one's soul. This story is painfully sad and at the same time, beautiful. There are moments that I will cherish long after this book has been read. The writing is sharp, human, and heartfelt. The camaraderie and loyalty between the main characters are striking and touched me in such a way that I can't describe. It is all about the brief shining moments and little victories. That is the beauty that exists between these characters. The story of Hardly has many layers and I am ever so grateful Mr. Crosbie was ambitious enough to bring this character to life. Now I can only wait and look forward to the third book in the series. "I let out a little half-laugh and looked up at him for a moment. Yes, I wanted to stop. I didn't want to pour booze into myself all the time, but how do you do that. How do you be twenty-one years old and not drink? How do you be in the army and have mates and not drink? How do you sleep at night without thinking about things that happened to you when you were a little lad and not drink? How do you breathe without knowing there's a pint waiting for you at the end of the day, no matter how bad things get?"
