Like millions of young Americans pursuing the American dream, Chad is determined to create the life he's always dreamed of. Medical school, married to the love of his life, and expecting a child, it appears as though life is right on track.
When the American dream turns into the American nightmare, Chad's forced to quit med school and rethink his life. With the recession in full swing, day-to-day life becomes extremely difficult. The job market is in shambles, and he's only able to find two minimum wage jobs. With six-figure, non-dischargeable student loans tugging away at his soul, Chad ends up losing everything...except for his debt!
Banks, bill collectors, and bad credit push him over the edge. He relentlessly researches the elites and the draconian system that they've designed. Becoming a martyr for the poor and working class, Chad gives the rich pigs a taste of their own medicine. The phrase, "They should fry for that!" is commonly heard about politicians, bankers, and their counter parts. Chad Miller is about to see to it that the phrase is more than a figure of speech!
Shot guns and sharks and plane crashes, oh my!

Better than Dexter on Crack
I generally start off with what I didn't like about a book. Here, the only fault I can find is the narration itself. Williams has an odd cadence, and the pace is unnerving. Secondly his pronunications almost seemed forced, as if speaking in an easy going manner would have been hard for him. Thus, performance loses a star.
Now, Wallach does not hold back in any sense. He is graphic and caustic in his very visual descriptions of Chad's murders. In other words, this book isn't for people with weak stomachs or delicate sensibilities. A serial killer he may be, but he is not indiscriminate about it. Chad has a purpose in his actions, and Wallach skillfully makes the reader sympathetic to his character. Most especially when Chad loses pretty much everything important to him.
The book really gets dark when our boy Chad goes out looking for some real payback. He makes the Punisher look like a half blind 90 year old grandmother who is mildly annoyed. These are the scenes you won't want to read to your 10 year old!
I deeply recommend this for someone who likes black-hearted humor, twisted revenge tales, and dark twisted anti-heroes. Just don't expect to sleep for a bit afterwards, dreams may get disturbing.

The insidious student loan...
We are presented with a detailed and depressing study of a young couple, Chad and Bel striving for the American Dream, but ultimately being crushed by credit card debt and student loans, while trapped in the clutches of a depressed economy. Sound familiar to anyone out there? Once things started going sour the downhill momentum increased, ensuring let down after tragedy. Comparisons are made to the practice of bankruptcy and even the return of defective products. No exceptions apply to student loans, period. In effect we are presented with a treatise on the dysfunctional aspects of the student loan bureaucracy and the cumulative affect debt can have on people under certain conditions. Between tragic loss and depression Chad lost it. Stay tuned to find out what happened to Chad and how he dealt with it. Tis a dish best served cold.
