    9. I was uncertain at first if this book would appeal to me, but I should not have worried about the appeal factor Almost immediately, I empathized with George and his incredible streak of bad luck There were plenty of humorous moments, some laugh out loud funny, but the story flowed along smoothly from one experience to the next crisis without ever feeling rushed Neither did it slow down or feel like it was not moving toward some insightful breakthrough or truth George kept reaching for that elusi [...]
