I received this book as an ARC quite a while ago. To be honest at that time the book wasn’t ready for publication, so I didn’t post a review back then. Now that it is I am ready to share my thoughts on it.
Knowing this is really a memoir it is amazing to find myself reading it like a Quintin Tarantino movie script. However unbelievable it might seem, these are the true life events from a real person, living a very real life in the belly of the beast Vegas can be.
It is raw, captivating and at times very emotive. All in all a pleasant read. Because of its set-up, different short stories for the various events during the authors life, you can read it in bursts. For me that was one of the many good things, because sometimes it was so gripping and got to me, I had to put it down and ‘chew’ on it a while before continuing with following the author on his path.
He has a very strong and distinctive voice, which makes it in your face, but in a good way.
