This autobiography is a hodge-podge of stories from author Philip Gulley's childhood and teenage years in Danville, Indiana. From the rumor (spread by his siblings) that he was adopted to days being overworked by the U.S. Government, and up to the time he left his parents' house in the interest of not living in a "prison," these stories are told in Gulley's witty voice as he reminisces over various aspects of his colorful past.*This was another book I wish I could give 3.5 stars to. Overall, the book was great. The stories were often comical, told in the witty way that Philip Gulley is known for in his "Harmony Series" (a series I love). I found myself chuckling aloud on more than one occasion. However, I feel he over-exaggerated some stories to the point of overkill. I wish he would have reigned in his sarcasm and dramatics a little more to give the reader a more accurate idea of the stories of his life. this really was a laugh out loud, chuckle thru the chapter book. i have the benefit?? of being pretty familiar with the hendricks county/danville, IN area & still have family there so that very likely gave me some insight into some of the humor, my husband said, "only a hoosier would find that funny"... i dont know...i dont consider myself a hoosier (anymore). all that said, i was uncomfortable with how he made fun of so many religions, especially after i found out he is a pastor.
