TORN: The Story of an Undeserving Wallaby Drowning in a Septic Tank by Simon Williams is a personal story of an intelligent man from down under (Australia not Austria)!

The author’s journey is full of surprises both pleasant and unpleasant. It’s a trip of self-discovery and self-realization.

If you are a rugby fan then this book is for you, there are so many information about the sport that even me that I had no idea about it learned a quite a lot.

The struggles of the author to migrate from Australia to the USA are described in a caustic and satirical way that they were times I couldn’t stop laughing. I connected with his endeavors since similar events did happen to me when I visited the USA back in 1998 and it was near the time the author made his attempts too.

The book has this humorous undertone which is addicted and entertaining at the same time making you read and read until you finish the book and then wishing there was more. The authors failed marriage and the loss of his son are indeed heartbreaking and me entirely associated with him on some level as I got a divorce a year ago. I do hope he will reunite with his son; there is nothing more beautiful than the bond between father and a son.

Can’t wait to read the sequels.

Highly recommended.
