    One thought on “The Wake-Up Call”

    1. This book was a free download on Kindle. I have to admit I wasn't sure about this book from some of the reviews I saw and put off reading it for awhile. I finally decided to read it and I have to say that I as so glad I did and really enjoyed it. The best part for me in my opinion is that Jack felt like a real person. He was flawed and knew that about himself. I had no problem with the way the thought and is reactions to situations in his life. He was sad, lonely, angry, confused and real. I am [...]

    2. Sure, he isn't Hemingway or Faulkner or McCarthy. He is Jonas Eriksson, and I'm glad about that. His writing reads real. It feels real. What I like most about the book is that behind the homour lies that certain type of seriousness that reminds me how to be human, and that I am human. Looking forward to reading the rest of his books.

    3. I read some reviews prior to reading the book and found some not too glowing. Thought I should judge for myself. I did and want to say I thought the book was quite good. Jack, the main character, is probably quite common in this day and age. I thought the author portrayed him well and did a fine job with the story.

    4. As a self-discovery journey, it's extremely flawed, and to a certain extent, realistic. But I couldn't get past the unlikeable qualities of the main character--shallow, egotistical, selfish--when in the end, he doesn't really redeem himself. The ending was too absurd and didn't justify the journey itself.

    5. Blech. I borrowed this book and thought it was supposed to be funny. It was a total downer. The main character is a complete jerk. (He's worse than that but I'm trying to be PC.) Don't bother with this. It sucked.

    6. ???WTFThis has to be the oddest book I have ever read!It's one gigantic rambling in the life of Jack. There are no chapters just a little white space and a few asterisks.I almost gave it 1 star but because I feel generous I gave it 2

    7. Jack Reynolds is a skuzz ball. His wake-up call and slow journey toward reform, make for an interesting journey.

    8. "Hahaant fun for small money! Like a mix of a male Bridget Jones and Marian Keyes toneif you don't smile to this book, you probably never smile anyway" - Anna Colley.

    9. This book came highly recommended but I'm about 1/3rd done and I'm bored out of my mind. Maybe I'll pick it up again at a later date to finish since I hate not finishing a book

    10. I fast-forwarded through this book.It was slow to start, and I actually decided not to finish it until checked out a review on hereIt mentioned that the book doesn't end like most romance novels do, with people getting exactly what they want, and that sparked my interest. So, I jumped through pages. Only read dialogues, not descriptions or the narration from the protagonist's POV. It helped me get through it faster. But the fact that I had to do that shows it wasn't the book for me and I couldn' [...]

    11. The book had a slow start, but once the pace picked up it was a fast read. I picked it up because I really like the cover. Would I read it again? No, most likely not. But it was a good light read for a Saturday afternoon. Like one of those movies you happen to land on while channel surfing entertaining enough but nothing too exciting or groundbreaking. Nothing too memorable, but not terrible either - if it was, I would've given up, but it managed to keep my attention. So I say give it a try.

    12. The author's voice was good, I got the whole guy attitude thing, but GEEZ, was this tedious. I gave up at 30% and it took me THREE days to force myself that far. It just never WENT anywhere. He's an alcoholic, workaholic jerk at the beginning, and at 5%, and at 10%, and at 25% and he's just not WORTH it.Forget it. I give up. This guy deserves his business to fail. He deserves an STD. He deserves liver cancer. What he doesn't deserve is a book about him.

    13. I honestly didn't see much of a point to the story. There wasn't a big climax or much of a conclusion. It just kept going and nothing really drove the plot. The characters weren't worth getting invested in and everything remained very superficial. I kept reading because I kept expecting it to get better and for something to happen. There were also many typos and errors. Bad editing.

    14. 3/4 of the way through and I feel like I have a hang over already. All this guy does is drink and act like a jerk--so far he has not come close to redeeming himself, and I'm getting bored and annoyed!

    15. Not at all what I expected this book to be. in general I liked the book but something about it doesn't seem believable. I couldn't relate to the characters and didn't get even the slightlest but emotionally involved. although the ending was abrupt I liked how it ended.

    16. I found it pretty boring and methodical. The flow wasn't great and the main character made me want to punch him and walk away, but then I was bored and over it--and this book
