First of all I want to say, I absolutely loved this short book. I laughed so hard at some points. I am sure there are those who would not like the profanity through out, but I am open to however someone wants to express their self. I found myself chuckling and enjoying the humor he found in the situations. I also enjoyed the situations that were true life, about Daniel’s feelings and outlook on certain things. There is definitely a great message through the sarcasm. It is truly sad that his life was cut short, and we are unable to receive more writing from him. I recommend this read to anyone of a mature nature that would be understanding to the sarcasm, not offended by a few cuss words, and willing to be open minded.
I definitely will be looking forward for more of his writing being published, as well as anticipating it. This is a short book of really random thoughts, that actually we all think about I am pretty sure. Plus, he vents his feelings about certain subjects, and in the end still appreciates every minute of life. I also like at the end there is an appendix with some writing from his last semester at college before he passed, I really enjoyed his thoughts on what he had learned, and how it made him feel. I also enjoyed the second appendix showcasing some of his favorite quotes, I myself write a little, and love quotes, some of his favorites are mine also. I believe if you are looking for something different to read this is the book for you. Once you start reading it you won’t be able to put it down, you want to see what he had to say next.
