I hope you all had a great weekend! My boyfriend and I spent today finishing up reading The Build by Paul Teutul Jr. This is not my kind of book at all, but I’ve been trying to convinced my boyfriend to read…and this apparently was the only way so far to get him to start. Don’t worry y’all. He’ll be reading fantasy books by the end of the year 🙂
This book follows Paul Jr, who he’s whole life has been creating bad ass motorcycles. Most people know him from his show American Chopper and only know how rich and famous he is & they know briefly about the issues he has with his father. But this book goes into so much more detail about that. This book explains how rough Paul Jr’s childhood was. With dealing with his alcoholic father has a young child & then he himself getting involved into drinking and got addicted to drugs.
It was a real eye opener. Most people think that famous people have it all and that their lives are perfect. And while yes they do have it all, most weren’t born into them. Most had to work very hard to get were they are today. And honestly I wish more people would see that. See that famous people are still people. They still have flaws and feelings. They are still human.
Overall I really enjoyed this book. I think it made it a lot better reading it with my boyfriend. It gave us something to talk about and I think brought us closer just a bit. He will probably disagree and never want to read again but I liked it nonetheless. Defiantly recommend this to anyone who likes a real story. Or anyone who likes bad ass motorcycles.
I was given this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review! Love those guys at Blogging for Books! Check em out!
