I am not an avid reader so a book really has to keep my attention in order for me to finish it and enjoy it. From the very beginning, it did just that. I absolutely love this author’s sarcasm and sense of humor, and I felt like it made him and the book very relatable.
I guess it’s the feeling of putting life into something that used to be nothing. Learning about people’s interesting life stories makes you feel realize just how much we are all connected somehow.
The invention of everything has been a great read. Told from the writer’s point of view, it takes a deep dive into his experiences. It has an amazing array of tales craftily blended into one cohesive book.
I read this book and finished feeling like it contained all the talks I wish I would’ve had with my father or uncles: all the charming, folksy facts and stories I wish they would’ve told me, all the hard-won wisdom I wish they would’ve imparted, and so much practical knowledge I wish they would’ve passed down.
