Fairly interesting stories, too much propaganda

Some of the author's experiences are interesting if you can stomach all the bs leftist propaganda. I guess its to be expected given where the author is originally from.

Wow!

I saw a review that this was a modern day Catcher in the Rye, and I’m always open to interesting reads. In the beginning of the book, the author promised a titillating read of sex and scandal. What was actually portrayed, from my opinion, was an emotionally stunted insecure man-child who had no idea about how to be in a consensual adult relationship. The relationships he speaks of the most are with an older woman he met as a teen with agoraphobia whom he had a significant online relationship, whom he was with for 15 years. Then he had a series of relationships with drug addicted prostitutes. Then the book ended. I think he is trying to be “cool” but it lands so flat, I feel sorry for the hookers. This book made my skin crawl, and the writings was at a high school level. Please, do not waste time out of your life to read this.
