Pabby's ScorePabby's Score by James Ross
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I will admit that I have never read a book like this before.  I was initially drawn to the book because it features two kids with autism.  But it is so much more than that!  This book tackles corruption, secret societies, murder, and much more.  It is really a quick read (even though it is over 400 pages).  The chapters are short and manageable, and the story is fairly easy to follow.

For me, Pabby and Shae are the bright spots in this book.  I enjoyed reading about them and all the disabled kids at their home.  I found them charming, and I loved the fact that they would share their vast knowledge any time they wanted to.  I love the fact that they were so trusting and uninhibited.  I was cheering for Pabby when things were really going well for him.

I was horrified to read about lawyer corruption and the secret society.  I will not put spoilers here, but don't think that the last 100 pages will be a pleasant read.  I couldn't put the book down during that last 100 pages.  It was the most intriguing part of the book for me!

There is profanity throughout the book (but not as much as I thought there might be), but I was more offended by all the sex in the book.  Thankfully details were limited, but I read enough to sicken me.  And perhaps that is the author's purpose. I was glad that the major online sex portion of the book turned out as it did.  That actually surprised me.

For me, the book pointed out how many sick people there are in the world.  I often live in a bubble and don't even realize what kinds of things are going on.  This is one of those books that I am glad I read even though it was not always a pleasant experience.  If you like to read about government corruption, this is the book for you.  Although I know nothing about golf, I did not find that to be an issue in understanding the book.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
