Smoking At The Gas Pumps Book Review From Scott Simmons

Smoking at The Gas Pumps By John Patrick Robbins has a somber yet life like tone to it along with a highlights of his unique sense of humor. This book has many quick writes that packed a punch such as "She Called It Love", "Do You Like Spiders", and "Better Than Dead" that portrayed very dark themes in an extremely realistic manor. There are several works in the book where fact and fiction are blurry without any kind of unnecessary romanticization to detract from the readers immersion in the book. However beyond the themes of addiction, heartbreak, and the scars of a hard lived life there are a few humorous stories such as "My Devil With The Devil", and "Hello Mr. Cook" which added some much needed comedic relief to the book. Smoking at The Gas Pumps is a quick book that gives the readers a lot of diversity inside of a small package. On a technical level the formatting is excellent, it has good grammar, it's easy to read and there are a few visual elements added to a few of the writes.This E-book is also available on many different formats such as Amazon, Walmart, Barnes and Nobel, and Google Play.

My Opinion:
I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a small book with a very big impact and it also is very competitively priced.
