I was given a copy of this novel in exchange for a honest reviewI started this book without reading any reviews or a synopsis and having now read it I know that it is not my usual genre and would not generally appeal to me That said I read the book as promised and found there were large parts of it that I really enjoyed but other parts that left me a little shell shocked I am not prudish but I did find much of the dialogue and graphic descriptions a little too raw at times Yes I understand the language represents the character but repeated swearing becomes a little tiresome after awhile The book is in fact based around the authors own experiences battling alcoholism which makes the story remarkable The book is full of observations some will make you cringe some are sad and others will make you laugh out loudI was too distracted by the graphic content to fully appreciate some of the finer points of the novel Having read other reviews there is a lot of support for the authors style and they fully appreciate it Dean Lillyman can certainly write well but sorry not for me
