This is the tale of Owen Thomas and the path his life has taken. I recommend this tale. I love it. It's best described as a cheating story with a twist, but the twist is more of a swerve off the road and into the trees.
The good: The plot is great. There's a lot of moments where you feel the same frustration with the situation that the main character does.
The bad: In some places, events could have been expanded upon to give a deeper sense of Owen's anguish instead of using broad brushstrokes. International customs could have been much less pleasant in a lot of ways, for example. It might also have been nice to see an epilogue to show where the characters moved forward from there.
The ugly: The British slang is thick in some places. I tend to shy away from tales where this is the case. This tale might have made me shake my head and wonder about a few things, but it never quite made it to the point that I wondered if Google Translate might help me out.
I give this story high marks across the board and recommend it without reservation.
