    Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. His days are a dull routine of work, loneliness, and regret.

    Overall

    This book really isn't as bad as many people would say on this site.. Though a lot of the story could have used some proofing and a few things moved around, some things added and some subtracted, the heart of the story is still there. This book I would say is a fair book only because the premise of the story is good, but the writing and delivery could use some work. My primary complaint is the narrator. He was terrible, and I think that he ruined it for some people with his annoying performance. That narrator should stick to being the announcer for automobile commercials.

    Bottom line, the book wasn't THAT bad.. but on the other hand, it wasn't THAT good either.. A lot is left to your imagination in this case, and you crave for more information, which sometimes could be what some are looking for. I can honestly say I that enjoyed the book having said that. This book made me think and reflect on how I see things, and how that same image would be radically different for another individual.
