Review: Growth and Change Are Highly Overrated

Growth and Change Are Highly Overrated
Growth and Change Are Highly Overrated by Tom Starita
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Lucas James has lost the love of his life, Jackie (“my apple jack”), but he still has plenty of focus on the most important part of his life…himself. He’s been mooching off Jackie for years, but now that she has wised up Lucas James will finally have to figure things out for himself. He gets a day job at “The Store” but keeps his musical dreams alive. He is a musical genius after all. Being alone and growing up is a lot harder than it looks though and Lucas James is struggling to cope. Refusing to fully accept the inevitable, he begins stealing small things from his job. This will definetly end well, right?

Oh Lucas James, I really wanted to like you…but I didn’t. You were so self absorbed that I had a hard time believing anyone would waste one year, let alone ten supporting your narcissistic butt. I found reading this story so tedious because I never connected with Lucas James (and we always must refer to him as such). I felt bad for pretty much all the characters that came across his path. The only part I enjoyed was when he had to clean some gutters to repay a debt and the lady called him the wrong name, that was amusing. If I could give half stars I would have given this a 2.5, but as it stands I’ll stick with a 2.
