    Awesome

    I really liked the book. LaPoma has a great talent to create and write but also to make you feel part of the story. a very good book, good plot, good dialogues and a new point of view to try to understand life and its mysteries.

    Read This Book

    This is the kind of book that you sip like a fine wine that you don't want to end. The characters, descriptions, and locations were perfect. It's a story that alternates slow,subtle changes with sudden, brilliant epiphanies, and you grow along with the character, hoping for him to find his peace. William is a writer who has a lot of problems with mental illness and drinking. The author, Jonathan LaPoma, doesn't mention much about William's childhood, but from the brief things he does tell us, it's obvious that William was a badly abused child who deals with his problems by running away from them. In this story, he runs to Mexico. Things are going well at first. He goes to parties, smokes weed, and has a great time. But soon his demons come back, and he finds himself in some of the darkest and most dangerous areas in the Mexican town where he's living. His friends are hilarious, but they don't really do anything to help William. In fact, they often make his life worse, but they all care about each other and their interactions are the funniest parts of the book. William travels, and meets women, and makes friends but it isn't until he meets his girlfriend, Luz, that he begins to recognize his self-destructive ways. The book changes at this point. There's still a lot of partying and all that after, but William starts seeing these parties differently. The last part of the book is a road trip where William travels through Mexico with Luz and a few other friends. This, to me, was the most poignant part of the book. This is where William is able to reflect upon his time in Mexico, separate himself from his self-destructive friends, and start to feel more peace within himself. The book is long, but it captivated me until the end and made me really think about my own life, which is not something many books can do. As long as you're not easily offended by swearing, drinking, fighting, and sex, do yourself a favor and read this book. I'm really glad I did!
