This is James Ross’ initial exploration into the literary globe, and he could pat himself found on the back for producing a well tailored and executed story. I like my heroes heroic and my villains villainous, and Ross delivers.
Being a book reviewer, I perhaps treat reading a small different from many persons. I choose up a book, check the quantity of pages, the typeface, and font size. Lifetime Loser based on my reading criteria looked like a 2, or at many 3 day adventure. How incorrect I was, it took me over a week to read this book. The story lines are intricate, as well as the character development intricately and cleverly handled. I knew I was in trouble when at the finish of my initial day of reading I had hardly scratched the initially 50 pages. I took some time out to consider about this shocking statistic. It wasn’t that I had lost my touch at the art of reading, it was merely that there was clearly thus much detail which was thus effectively created, it took time to assemble and file the info.
OK, I think you need to understand what the book is about?
Our hero is J. W. Schroeder (aka J Dub), we meet him as a young guy who has a flair for the game of golfing, his dad having taught him all he may about this gentleman’s game. J Dub has a chance to create it to the big league, a player found on the PGA. One momentary lapse of focus wrenches beat within the jaws of victory, and J Dub loses his chance. What upcoming for this young guy and his expecting spouse? A existence offering golfing classes at the area driving range?
J Dub’s angel comes in the shape of 1 Lewford E. Zerrmann. Lew is a ‘land man’ and has bought a somewhat run down golfing course, he requires somebody with a knowledge of the game to run it for him. Better nevertheless, because Lew is these a good man he’ll provide a partnership, J Dub will have have 20% of the company, along with a initially choice to purchase must J Dub want to become a sole owner.
15 years elapse, and about truly the only thing J Dub knows for certain is the fact that his partner is not any gentleman, he has no individuals abilities, and looks to be heck bent of driving buyers away. The golf course found on the additional hand is a prevalent place, income is wonderful, yet their not appears to be any funds left in the bank after expenses have been paid.
As the relationship becomes improving strained J Dub is forced to look about, and chatting to persons. What he hears and sees refuses to create for a pretty pic. He should recognize create a choice, to walk away from 15 years of sweat equity or remain and fight?
This is a remarkable book, it has murder, swindles, forgery, taxes evasion, almost everything you can wish in a amazing read. Lew has the social abilities of Rattle Snake, while naive J Dub plods gently along at his own pace. In a David Vs. Goliath battle who usually win?
I won’t provide the intricacies of the story away, and neither might I spoil the ending, but I might whet your appetite with all the truth that the ending comes as a big surprise.
