I thought it was a bit flat. Not bad by any means. Overall it kinda made me less of a fan of Leonard. Anyone else feel the same?

It made me think he was fake as hell. He played the good boy role to the fullest in order to maximize his earnings but was really a druggie in his life.

Not that I was ever a big Leonard fan. The Sugar I like is Robinson.

Read em at bookstores to save money. The stories inside the book go by very fast and can be finished in one session.

leonard liked his nose candy and women while robinson liked just his women, weed, and abused his wife all of these are not desirable traits and where fairly will hidden during there primes.
