I read this book in a day. One day. One small, little day. It grabbed me and wouldn’t let me go. I had stuff to do, I had a busy day planned, but this book decided “No Teri, you will read me from cover to cover!” and thus I was powerless!
The story follows a charming man names Pat Peoples, a man who currently resides in a psychiatric hospital, for a reason we do not yet know.
The book is written in the form of his inner monologue, and emphasises (sometimes painfully) his honesty, dedication and passion. Not only to reconcile with his wife, Nikki, but to be an overall better human being. Pat can sometimes comes across as quite childish, his wording and thought processes are similar to that of a child, but every now and then he’ll blind you with something so brilliant that you are reminded that this is actually a grown man, who has lead a normal, happy life until recently, and that is really heartbreaking.
I don’t want to give anything away, but the ending is beautiful. It slightly what you expect but it is beautiful nonetheless. I am not to proud to admit that I had a little weep.
