Do I know why I have this book? No Do I know why I decided to read it? Yes, because it has a snowman on the front and thought it would be a nice quick read. So what did I think of it?
Hurt people hurt people.
Say there was a novel in which Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic and Lolita was a photographer’s assistant and, somehow, they met in Bright Lights, Big City. He’s blinded by love. She by ambition. Diary of an Oxygen Thief is an honest, hilarious, and heartrending novel, but above all, a very realistic account of what we do to each other and what we allow to have done to us.
Taken from goodreads
Right where the fuck do I even start, this book needs to have just about every single trigger warning under the sun placed onto it but for some reason why I went back to do some research expect for the reviews on goodreads regarding it I found zero warnings about the contents of this book. Luckily, I am able to cope with all the triggering stuff in the book but some people might not be so lucky.
The main character is a horrible person, this book is basically his diary and he tries to make you feel bad for him after telling you about all the horrible stuff that he has done and it really doesn’t work. If anything, whenever something bad does happen to this guy then you actually feel better and go, good you deserved it
In a 151 page book there is a grand total of 3 chapters, one of those chapters is 70 pages long.
The author goes through different time periods which is something I do like but he does it paragraph to paragraph with no way of knowing which time period you are in. The whole book is all over the place and just makes you think did anyone even proof read this before they published it.
To me all I am able to take away from this read is that some men are awful, some women are just as bad and that I wasted my 4 hours worth of reading on this garbage. Yes I said 4 hours for 151 page book because I just didn’t want to continue the read it was that bad
