The book up for review is “When Do I Get to Live My Own Life? Ten Personal Stories” Paul Rice.
This is not an easy to book to read or review. The material is on the struggles of one man as he tries to live in a world with insecurities. The depth of despair he has experiences and writes about is not for the easy of heart. But yet it is one that a lot of people have problems with and for them, they will be able to identify with this author.
The subject matter of an upbringing by parents that would stunt anyone physically, mentally and emotionally is laid out for all of us to see. The stories written shows our author in his life with the ups and downs and how he deals with them when he says he never had a childhood to be able to cope with every day occurrences. One could feel the pain drip off the pages as they were turned. I can only image what it took to write this book.
The book is not very long but to the point. Anyone who reads this will take away something no matter how small.
