Finally, the highly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Beautiful Disaster. Can you love someone too much?
Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.
In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. But just when he thinks he is invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.
Every story has two sides. In Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it’s time to see the story through Travis’s eyes.
The writing was very slow for me, and parts just seemed to drag on. I found myself skipping passages. While on the other spectrum, other parts just felt so rushed.
The epilogue was a nice touch, but even that felt rushed. Basically, I think I would have been happier with some scenes being taken out, while other scenes being written a little better.
I know this review makes it sound like I completely hated Walking Disaster, but that isn't true. I still thought that the concept was a good one. I think I just expected a little more. I was really hoping to get a lot more insight into this man then I did.
