A fun, quick read. Inman's characters shine in this novel, and the journey of self-discovery that the main character, Will Baggett, takes is one that resonates in the life of every reader. My only complaint, if it can be called that, is that the end seemed to wrap things up a bit too neatly. After a deus ex machina event in the last ten or so pages, all the pieces fall neatly into place, which for me detracted from the sense of realism in the rest of the novel. Overall, though, it was a great story, one that I would highly recommend to anyone who feels lost/overwhelmed with life (which is really anyone on any given day). A very approachable, fun and enjoyable read.

Amusing but preferred his book Old Dogs and Children.

A good read about a man who has everything, and nearly looses it all but figures out how to regain the most important things, his happiness and his son's respect. Didn't want to put the book down!

Thoughtful, well-written, entertaining book of a middle-aged man who thinks he's got it all, when everything changes.
