Book Review - Sucktown, Alaska
About the Book
Sucktown, Suckington, Suckfield, Suckingham, Suckland, Suckmont, Suck Francisco. By any other name Kusko, Alaska, would still smell like human sweat, moose stew, and dog poop. But Eddie Ashford can t be choosy after partying his way out of college in one semester s time. He lands a job in tiny Kusko, a bush town located in the heart of unromantic Alaska, he s warned. Eddie intends to straighten out his act and make good on a promise to stay for a year, but soon he s indebted to his employer, overworked, and underpaid. He is also spurned by the almost-perfect girl, frustrated, and bored. He finds himself caught in a dilemma: do the right thing, work hard, and stick it out in Kusko or take a chance, smuggle some goods for the local pot dealer, and pile up the cash to pay his way out of Suckramento?
My Take on the Book
This was a book that really challenges you to see the world in a new way, through the eyes of a character that is not the easiest to love. That being said you can empathize with the character to the situation that he is in and the author does a great job at being able to get you connected to the world that he lives in. The author creates vivid images within the book and you really do get drawn into the story and the drama that surrounds the main characters' life. While you know that this character is a train wreck you hold out hope for better and what you get, well I cannot tell you, but it is a story that continues to keep giving at every corner!
