The book reads like rough fiction. I had to remind myself that that it's a true, albeit strange... um... very strange story at times. I was incredulous at the author's embrace of being the butt of gay innuendo.
It's army life from the view of a class clown. His injury during battle somehow brings depth.
It was worth the read to see the world through Jesse's insanity. ;-)
I think I have an image of pringles indelibly etched into my mind. I'll never be able to eat pringles again.
I was doubtful about the performance at first... until I heard Jesse in a video playing the preacher.
I normally "read" audio books at 1.5 to 2 times speed. Greg Barrett reads really fast... so I slowed it down to 1 x speed. The southern accent fit.
I was shocked at quite a bit of what I read. I won't ruin it for other's by describing it here.
Laugh? Cry? I had to retrieve my jaw from the floor.
The writing is not polished. Personally, I think that works in the book's favor. It fits with the content.
I can imagine a movie coming out of this.
