This was an awesome book! In the beginning the constant shift from character to character and narrator to narrator was a bit hard to keep up with but you soon began to love and understand all of the characters. There is a lot of depth to each character. The story itself is very good and a real "page turner" from start to finish. The romance is captivating and hot without taking away from the action and story. The performance for each character was top notch. I cannot wait to read, or listen to, the sequel!

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless.
