Barely Legal, revisited

Barely Legal, revisited

Barely Legal – Stuart Woods & Parnell Hall

I shot out a quick review, earlier, it’s here.

However, in reflection, I was trying to figure out why that was, as a story, a character, or protagonist, who stuck with me, and why I cared?

The main person in the tale, he is a deeply flawed individual. Tries to better himself, but still gets crapped on by life, despite trying to do the right thing. As a spin-off series, the main character is always well-heeled, and apparently lucky. Unlucky in love in a long series of lovers, apparently each one breathtakingly beautiful, yeah, not much sympathy there, with all the well-deserved breaks that tend to only happen in fiction.

Fiction, unlike real life, usually makes sense.

Always root for the underdog? Or more realistic when there is a guy who, despite the best efforts, always gets kicked when he’s down?

Barely Legal is the second or third with this character as the main protagonist. Deeply flawed, which, in a way, makes it a better book.
