Stumbling on Open Ground

I just finished reading Stumbling on Open Ground by Ken Mansfield last night.  I received a free copy of this book from Booksneeze, in exchange for my honest opinions and review.

I really wanted to like this book at lot.

Ken Mansfield shares his Job-like story of living with not one, but two cancers.  That’s a pretty darn amazing story.  Especially when you consider that Ken Mansfield is the former US manger of the Beatles’ Apple Record company.

The problem was, that the narrative was unclear.  I felt like I was in my car at a stop sign and the car next to me was playing a really good tune on the radio.  The melody was there, but I just couldn’t fully access it.

For example, in one scene a doctor is telling Ken that he needs to go home and get his affairs in order because he is going to die.  In the next scene, his wife is saying that they left for Hawaii and the cancer didn’t act up after all.”  What???  Don’t leave me hanging!  I wanted to hear more details of how that went down.

Instead, I felt kind of lost.
