I decided to buy this book given the purposed but seemingly warm review it received on a blog I read. Now that I have come to finishing the book I am still unsure whether or not I liked it.
The books narrative is set over a year or so of the writers emigration to Australia. Paul himself is an angry, selfish man. This is reiterated over and over in the book and I don't think the writer pretends for it to be any other way. I was often left with the feeling that I'm not sure I'd like the Paul described in book if I ever met him. Even giving him grace for the interesting background he has lived which is entertainingly laid out throughout the book as some kind of insight into why he has horrible thoughts about X, Y or Z. Personally I connected on a lot of the themes within the book, harsh upbringing in many respects, wild times throughout the early years of adulthood, the mundane bliss of your late 20s/early 30s that can only be appreciated when parenthood is thrust upon you. By god, the insomnia fuelled depression of raising newborns without the proper support is detailed agonizingly clear in this book. I would recommend others to read this if only to understand how some men (maybe a lot of men) feel when they are struggling to make ends meet in early parenthood (In both an economic and emotional sense).
I wanted to give this book 4 stars but felt it lost its way towards the end. From the simple but jarring error of timelines written during the housewarming piece, to the seemingly unimportant chapter towards the end focusing on how sickness flows through a household with many adults and children crammed into it. The ending was at least pleasant if not underwhelming.
Thanks for your writings Paul, I'll continue to check out what you author on your website. I'd recommend this book to anyone who themselves are looking for a sympathetic tale of parenthood under duress from a man's perspective. There are some nice surprises in there that will definitely make you think.
