Hurt people hurt people. Say there was a novel in which Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic and Lolita was a photographer's assistant, and somehow they met in bright lights, big city. He was blinded by love. She by ambition.
Diary of an Oxygen Thief is an honest, hilarious, and heartrending audiobook but, above all, a very realistic account of what we do to each other and what we allow to have done to us.

it took me 3 days to finish but by God it was a good 3 days. I was captivated by the book almost instantly and how raw the authors feelings were almost poured out of the pages! 9/10 in my ratings. As a perfect 10 would be offered if I knew the author and could congratulate him.
I really enjoyed this it was an interesting insight and honest account of how someone thinks. It would be eye opening to some and will resonate with other (although they might not want to admit it out loud).
I found the ending quite flat to be honest though he thought he got his comeuppance but I thought he just had a bit of a rough night he deserved worse but I guess the fact that I felt that way about him means the narrator did their job well. Worth a short listen.
