Words, Words, Words

A catalog of my comments and thoughts on books, reading, and writing as well as anything I come across that seems interesting. I used to sell other people's words at an independent bookstore but now I hope to get by on selling my own.

One Last Thing Before I Go

One Last Thing Before I Go - Jonathan Tropper One Last Thing Before I Go takes its cues from protagonist Drew Silver, both are funny, poignant, sad, and a bit fucked up. There is a certain pattern which felt repetitive as I got to the end. Consciously I was trying to let the story unfurl, but it was hard to not anticipate the turn. You expect each time he does something that he is going to either faint or blurt something out, and he does, pretty much every time.However it takes a while to really become distracting and overall the characters are likable and fun and it has a lot of heart. Also, the ending is pretty strong if a bit safe.
