Publisher's Summary

Hurt people hurt people.

Say there was a novel in which Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic and Lolita was a photographer's assistant, and somehow they met in Bright Lights, Big City. He's blinded by love. She by ambition.

Diary of an Oxygen Thief is an honest, hilarious, and heartrending novel but, above all, a very realistic account of what we do to each other and what we allow to have done to us.

    "I think of karma"

    I loved the story! It was bouncing around a lot which made my mind wander but for the author: karma says that "you will fall in love with someone who doesn't love you for not loving someone who did"

    Story
    "an emotional rollercoaster"

    the beginning I hated him, the middle I felt he had a turning point, the end I wanted to cry for him. A story about the way we treat each other, brilliantly told in a way that makes you reevaluate your own relationships.

    the reading was phenomenal.

    Story
    "Uninteresting, the narrator is more annoying than anything."

    The book follows the general format of (1) get the listener to hate the narrator in the beginning, (2) warm up to him in the middle, and (3) like him enough to feel really sorry for him at the end. Except I never found the narrator likable. In the middle he was slightly less repulsive than in the beginning, but at no point was he likable. Therefore in the end I felt at most mildly sorry for him, even though the intention is clearly for us to feel awful for him.

    None of this is helped by how generally uninteresting the story is. If 50% of the book's content were omitted, it would still feel about the same. The writer also makes some annoying choices when the narrator speaks to the listener directly. At one point he says something to the effect of -Was I rambling? You mustn't let me do that.- WTH? Me stop you? Unnecessary annoyances like this certainly don't help a book that is already uninteresting.

    Story
    "Awesome start, a bit confusing towards the end"

    I enjoyed most of it. The writer's mind is very interesting, especially his transition. I feel like towards the end he overused the idea that this was a revenge book and if the reader is reading this then he succeeded. He said it like 5 times...the one was enough. I did like the narrators unlikable nature. Very authentic. Also applaud the writer on the marketing - amazing!

    "Captivating!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I don't know if it's fact or fiction, but I listened to it straight through. Blows the mind what some people will do. Written exceptionally well. Loved the Irish accent and the lighthearted humor about the cold MSP weather.<br/>
