A consistent narrative throughout creates an enjoyable accounting of events in the author's life, past and present, lending to an easy read. Mr. Sagarra is clearly in love with words (admittedly, perhaps a bit overwhelmingly at points but it doesn't distract), which helps convey a deep and powerful message about many facets in his life. His passion, compassion and appreciation for his friends and family comes through chapter after chapter, especially when talking extensively about his family history. Definitely add this to your collection if you appreciate well-written personal narratives/memoirs.

At first, I asked myself the overall purpose of this book, but soon enough the fluid introspection, meaningful thoughts and the author's conclusions about their life and in general made me understand their need to share it with the world. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy exploring along with an author in a personal journey of discovery and reflection.
