Walking Disaster - Jamie McGuire 3.5 STARS

I did give this book 1/2 star higher rating that I did Beautiful Disaster for two reasons.

1. I was a little more sympathetic to Travis seeing things from his POV of course.

"One of these days you're going to fall in love, son. Don't settle for just anyone. Choose the girl that doesn't come easy, the one you have to fight for, and then never stop fighting."

When the sad went away, I would always play, and I would always fight. Hard.

"I can't think of a single guy I know that's good enough for you."

I'd finally found a girl that was interesting enough to get to know, and a version of me had already hurt her.

For the first time I felt like a normal, whole human being, instead of some broken, angry man.

It still didn't change my opinion of him totally. As much as I liked him, I had some issues with him too.

2. The dialogue between Travis and Shepley and Travis and Trenton was hilarious! I love good banter. Also, being in Travis' head was funny too at times. Here are a few of my favorites.

"Why don't you shut up and give that whole in your face a chance to heal."

My brain flased like channels through Pigeon porn, and then the whole system crashed, and an infomercial about nobility and not wanting to screw up this weird friendship we'd just begun appeared in its place.

"The day you appeared on our family tree, I wanted to cut it down."

Ho 101: If the man in your sights is on a date or with a female friend, force him to admit to lack of commitment. Creates insecurity and instability.

"You haven't seen me mean, mama's boy!"
"I told you we're close!"
"Yeah, so are me and my asshole! Doesn't mean I'm going to call it twice a day!"
