I’m not much of a non-fiction reader, that much is obvious from the titles I read. I’m definitely not a huge fan of autobiographies especially when celebrities write them but I took an exception with this book because the title alone already shouts, “READ ME! “ so read it I did.
Here we have a Youtube sensation, a cancer survivor, an amputee and a motivational speaker who decides to write an autobiography but guess what he writes about?! His hilarious, romantic (although mostly failed) quests! This is just so refreshing and I enjoyed every bit of it.
The entire account had me literally laughing out loud from page one although I must admit there are some parts that broke my heart just a bit. Mr. Josh Sundquist made sure though that the sadness wouldn’t linger through his creative and scientific analyses of his personal dating (or the lack of it). His definitions, scientific observations and diagrams are hilarious. I couldn’t stop laughing at his dancing terms.
I love how he makes light of challenging situations and even of his own difficult experiences. He even makes a diagram comparing his odds at beating cancer being higher than his odds at winning Prom King. Just Lol! The book reads like a novel actually and it’s probably why I enjoyed it. In the end it manages to become inspirational without being preachy or without trying too hard. I’m looking forward to reading his debut novel.
