Chop Shop by Gary Morton

   This book is a first person story in segments. It explores every day events in the person's life and his way of viewing those events.  Written more like poetry than a novel, this book explains why the first person doesn't believe in happily-ever-after. It delves deep into feelings that are not talked about. Take time to really read this one and listen to what the author is saying. I think you'll agree with some of it.

    Not a depressing book, but very close. The cover is a bit misleading in that it's not really a horror story.  This book is more poetry and bare bones common sense. The author gives us the unvarnished look deep into the minds of every day people. Discussing those thoughts no one likes to admit they may have had at one time, but they are there.  The writing is good and this one will appeal to those who enjoy books that  are way out of the box. It's interesting and completely different than anything you've ever read before. 

     I did find issues. I feel as though the book jumped around tremendously and changed topics as frequently as a bird's wings flap.  There was no consistency in numbering or naming of chapters which leads me to believe this book is pieces of other works by the author thrown into one book. 

    I gave this book a 3 because while I applaud the writing, it just wasn't my cup of tea.
