I really enjoyed reading this book after seeing the movie. Yes, it is about Mike who made lots of mistakes like many people do. It was sad that he had such a poor opinion of himself, considering he was a brilliant man. I would have liked reading more about Philomena though. Anyway, it is a quick read. Enjoy!

The book was well written. I found myself being very upset with Mike as he made such terrible life choices for being such an intelligent man. I am not homophobic but his seedy lifestyle was so distasteful. What a waste of a brilliant life.
