Great story, awesome characters!

One thing readers enjoy is to see the characters we are reading about evolve. This is honestly a good read. The story is about two characters that develop a friendship, making for some really good character building. Gab learns to deal with a 'crazy' dude and the 'crazy' dude learns to trust again. As the story develops, I have to admit I thought Gab was going to be an unreliable narrator and I felt the story was going to go in one direction. But Mr. Dragoni yet again twisted things around and sent me down another path. I'll admit it, I cried with this one.

I had the pleasure of listening to the audiobook and Steve Castello is truly an actor. He makes this more than a book. He laughs and he sniffles. He really brings the characters and story to life.

Go on, read it, you know you wanna.

This is another great book by Ricky Dragoni! You have a fan for life 'mano.

PS. Thank you for showing me I am not the only weirdo eating butter on crackers.

This story definitely is a Must Read

I read the book maybe a little over a year ago and loved the story then. After listening to the audio and hearing the different inflections in the vocal tones it really allows you to imagine the characters even more and invision the events of the story. I found myself laughing at some points and crying during others. That truly is the magic of story telling.

Dragoni always a winner

We listened to this book on a long car trip. It held our attention until the end. Dragoni has a way of drawing you into the story. You become invested in the characters. The voice of the book (Steve Castello) does an amazing job. He brings the people to life and made us laugh and cry. I can hardly wait for Dragoni's next book!

Beautiful and profound

I read this book a couple years ago and I found it to be the most beautiful book I’ve read. It was an emotional journey which made me laugh and cry. It’s an unusual tale of the friendship which develops between two characters and addresses the issue of mental health.

However, listening to the book is so much more. Whatever I say in this review cannot do this Audible book justice. The narrator really did a stellar job of bringing the characters to life. I loved every moment I spent listening to this. I throughly recommend this book. I hope that you enjoy it.
