Description

When Lyle Villines learns his daughter has leukemia, he searches for a way to pay the huge medical bills that come with the condition. In desperation, he takes a well-paying under-the-table job driving a delivery van. He doesn't know what the cargo is, but the pay is enough to make him ignore that for the sake of his child.

Lyle questions his decision when he's hijacked on the interstate and left alive only so he can deliver a message to his employer. Turns out the load wasn't exactly legal. Nor was it insured, meaning he will have to pay for the loss by taking on a new job - cooking meth. Not only does it pay better, his boss says, but it keeps him off the road. When Lyle objects, he's given a simple choice. He can either take the opportunity, or his family will suffer. Faced with no other option, the only thing to do is follow orders...and hope he can get out alive.

Shadows of Breaking Bad.

Any additional comments?

I was voluntarily provided a free copy of this book by the author / narrator / publisher and I'm leaving an unbiased review.

From the summary, I figured that there will be some similarities between this book and the Breaking Bad tv show. And there were quite a few such similarities. The author also tried to dance around that same dilemma at places. The original parts of the book manage to stand on their own, despite the similarities at other places. But the problem with this book is - nothing comes as a surprise. You can predict what's going to happen next and that ruins the fun of reading the book.

fwiw, the narrator does a good job.

When things go wrong!

If you could sum up A Temporary Thing in three words, what would they be?

choices have consequences!

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Temporary Thing?

When he wants to cook and distribute his own meth was disappointing. Didn't see that coming.

What about Tommy G. Kendrick’s performance did you like?

Great voice and interpretations of characters.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A simple plan goes awry

Thought provoking listen

Both the author and narrator were new to me. I enjoyed this book, and thought the narrator fit the main character. Part of this book was very thought provoking in what we do for our children. Cancer is horrible, and extremely draining both financially and emotionally. I thought the ending was very good. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and or publisher.
