Today’s second team review is from Wendy, she blogs at http://booklovercircumspect4.wordpress.com
Wendy chose to read and review Six Lies by Ben Adams
Poor David, the guy just can’t win for losing. His wife, Lou, has left him for a librarian, *chuckle, chuckle,* and then his mother dies, and leaves him a note that she wasn’t his biological mother, and he needs to get answers from his father.
So, what does Dave do? Dave gets drunk and shags his best mates, ex wife, and a few others along the way. Great idea, Dave!
All the while, he’s still trying to get his wife back and figure out who is bio mom is.
Dave has a tendency to behave like a petulant child throughout this book, and has a tendency to get in his own way most of the time. Throughout reading this book, I didn’t know if I wanted to slap Dave across the face or just beat him to a bloody pulp!
But, when more lies are revealed after Dave meets his bio mom. You kinda gotta feel for the guy, and instead beat Dave’s dad!
In the end, Dave does redeem himself but dang it took him long enough. Maybe, he would have stayed more on track had he been thinking with the correct body part…
Overall, this was a funny read, written by a man’s point of view of life, and how they get in their own way a majority of the time!!
It reminded a lot about the joke, “What happens when you play a country song backwards? You get your wife back, your dog back, your truck back..”
