"SUM Lucid," is a hard slap in the face. It unconsciously reminds readers how life is fickle, how it never exactly leads people on the path they're supposed to be following. In his book, Mr. Shimberg gives an account about how his life veered off the desirable path. What makes his narration interesting is how he whizzes by every problem he's ever had like a pro, declaring very objectively, how he feels about each tragic and joyful occurrence that has already passed. His book readily describes these personal trials in a series of back-and-forth chronologies, in which memories resurface intermittently. There's a flurry of memorable recollections of bonding with his father, of various girlfriends, roommates and friends, all which make for vivid details of what life was like for Jason during the past decades. The book is a clear cut, and honest text, from start to finish.
