Have you listened to any of Ron Welch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Performance was great - he successfully presented the putrid hatred of humanity as written by the author.
What character would you cut from The Broke Ass Brigade?
Any additional comments?
Asperger's is not an excuse for this vitrioloc putrid hatred of all mankind. The author indulges in non-stop complaining about the actions of others while placing blame on everybody but himself. The writer states that he quits a job he hates - then earns a college degree in History while working as a security contractor: looks like a positive future. Then post degree he agrees to go back to "the company store" that he knows is incompatible with his personality. All the while complaining that he has no options: only a dog returns to its vomit. The writer was single with nothing but freedom. Join the JobCorp, volunteer for something meaningful in your community, there is no debtors prison: it's just a bad credit rating not a character rating. Do SOMETHING: hitchhike to Montana and raise sheep in a lean-to down by the river. The writer had plenty of time for video games, movies, and non-stop complaining - but never anything positive. Repay evil with more evil is non-productive. The writer states that an old military man took him to the side and told him effectively "There's the door - what hinders your freedom?" - he rejects it. Ok - you want to change the corporate world: upgrade that BA to an MBA and Management PhD. I see nothing here but juvenile glee in finding the most negative thing possible to say about horribly broken people. The writer has become a stereotype of that which he hates. Forget finding religion - the writer desperately needs to find humanity.
Starts ok. Not massively engaging but anyone who has worked at the lowest levels of corporate greed would be able to relate to the frustration described by the author.
The teenage sarcasm, however preventes any deeper level to the book so after an hour or so, the feel is one of being cornered by a whinging egocentric that is nowhere near a funny as they think they are.
Completely lost interest by halfway through the book. Unfinished.
