The first five chapters pulled me in and kept me there. I knew Mike, I understood his thoughts, his mood, I was living in his world. He's a guy who's had terrible things happen around him, but he continues on and tries to shrug it all off like the bad luck he assumes it to be... Hopes it to be. Until his friend and therapist begins to see that all this is pointing to something much bigger. When Mike finds out the truth, a string of bad luck would have been a much better scenario. I can't wait to find out even more!
