Live in Melbourne, work at an Italian club as a gaming supervisor and enjoy dressing up as an elf with friends to relive our favorite LOTR moments. Love all things fantasy and enjoy anything that requires imagination. Reality is a highly overrated concept.
Definitely understand what Mikey is saying about modern life, people nowadays have no imagination so they resort to drugs to try to 'expand their minds' instead. Modern life and modern technology has a lot to answer for, it makes people fat, lazy and stupid. Mikey speaks bluntly but honestly about a serious problem. Five stars for the effort.
I enjoy my fantasy literature, perhaps more than the average reader and so finding this was like finding gold for me. Jessica has a great writing style that pulls you in to the story and her characters are likeable and easy to relate to. Keep it up Jessica, this is great.
Yes, like the others I too enjoyed the poem but it's hard to feel sorry for people who do nothing but make their own health shitty and that of those around them. I feel no sympathy for smokers whatsoever, especially the disgusting ones who smoke around their children. Worthless selfish bastards. And they're always in groups around entrances to almost every building you walk in and I'm just sick of them. End rant lol.
Placing the entire book in such a confined space really does amp up the tension between the characters which I liked. Even their bus trip is a joke as the mug punters just go to another pokie club. I guess this shows just how addicted people are to their routines in life. Wake up, get dressed, drive to a club, lose money, go home. Rinse and repeat. It's hard to sympathize with people in this lifestyle. This is an ace read and I look forward to sampling more of Mr. Ray's acidic and blunt wit.
