I was a big fan of oblivion. I was even one of the first people to pick it up and read the book. It would take a long time before I found out what all the fuss was about, but I had to read it. The reason why I always recommend reading oblivion is because it had so many twists and turns that you wouldn’t believe were written in there. The plot grabbed me right away, the characters were complex, and the plot itself was very interesting. It’s hard to beat that kind of plot when you can’t actually tell how the thing will turn out. But how could they have given me any explanations? Not with world’s best heroines and knights in shining armor yet again.
It’s usually a good thing to find a new hobby but this time my interest was sparked by a friend. After reading an article about a young man (ummmm, no name) who dies of “finishing oblivion” I drove to his parents’ house to ask if they’d consider taking him home and making him happy. He said yes. Well, what a deal! I had the patient of my life at my feet for the next several months. A dedicated two-year old boy who is perfectly content in his bed every night will be completely resistant to outside influences and will do everything he can to ensure that he always feels comfortable and safe inside.
I’ve long been fascinated with the concept of unfinished business. The last few years has shown me why. A lot of people with unfinished business are so focused on what they’re going to do next that they don’t stop until they’ve killed their past. So far, I’ve had a pretty good understanding of what’s happening to my business and how the trajectory is moving forward. However, this book is different. This isn’t a how-to manual on un-killing your past but rather an approach to discarding your past and getting on with your future.
