    I'm reading it on Kindle. Can I report issues here? I usually do it via the app, but I don't know how long they take to get back to the author.

    After that started to work in a supermarket where my duty was to face up Swine the shelves near closing time.

    I can't even figure it what that is supposed to be.

    BTW, I love this bit:

    My mother was about to start a career in public house management. It turned into a great move as it made me an expert drinker before my 13th birthday.

    :cheers:

    Finished it. Really liked it. It's on Kindle Unlimited if you have a subscription.

    I bought the book and was unable to finish it due to a combination of poor copyediting, scattered narrative, and casual misogyny and racism. Just because you quote someone else using the n-word does not mean it's OK to put in a book. It serves no narrative purpose. Perhaps the copyediting has been fixed in the Kindle edition, but in print most pages had irregular continuations and hyphenation was done everywhere except to break up long words. It was not readable. I read a decent number of self-published books, but this one needs professional assistance. Sorry to be so negative.

    Aside from progressive wokery, was it a good read?
