don't waste your money
Reviewed in the United States on July 22, 2020
For the first time I can remember I have quit reading a book, half-way through; I just never do that in hopes it'll get better. So: we have our hero, admittedly suffering severe grief, deep in an alcoholic fog. But wait--even drinking heavily every day, mentally and physically out of shape, Our Hero at 40% function is superior to anybody else (yes, it actually said that).
So off he goes on a very tricky, dangerous mission--even riskier than usual!--because, you know, Our Hero can't be controlled; he's gonna do it anyhow because ... well, that's just him, right? And he keeps on drinking heavily!!
So we have pages and pages--not exaggerating here--of his ruminating about his grief, his life, his need for revenge. Personally, I read for enjoyment and alcoholics don't do it--that's 'dark' you see? The hero chain-smokes, drinks heavily, marital problems, etc. I'll pass and you should, too.
