Review from OnlineBookClub.org
What I loved most about the book is Cole’s wrought writing style; very detailed descriptions, of people, events, places and emotions to mention a few . Also, the introduction of each chapter with a title of which character the chapter is about, the italicized writing to explain a character’s thought process, the thought out introduction of characters among other detailed attributes in the book.

The book brings out through McDowell’s life that,’ Human brains evolve but remain primitive in the hunter-gatherer stage; realms of pain and pleasure remain the same’ as seen through McDowell’s sharply contrasted life as brought out by Coles in the first and second part of the book; at first lavish life then his fall from grace.
