I'm mostly a sci-fi reader, preferring happy feelgood stories, and competency porn, but reading a lot of different stuff makes me happy :)

I did not have a lot of fun with this one, it started out pretty bad with it mostly being a long conversation with a lot of quipping.

The book is about "blue collars" but they don't stay that way for long, before we're 40% through the book they already have more money than they know what to do with it, and since the MC already had enough money to just buy a huge place from the beginning, it doesn't seem like they were struggling in the beginning either.

There is no challenge whatsoever in the whole book, they just say they want something, and then they do it. Nothing is not resolved after a maximum of 2 pages, and it's resolved in the most stupid way ever.

Really did not enjoy this book much at all.
