The Thousand Hour Club by George O'Har review


The Thousand Hour Club
3.5 stars

The Thousand Hour Club by George O'Har tells the story of Tom Betz. The tale begins in Jersey where Tom goes with a friend to score some pot. A tragic accident occurs that totally changes the course of his life. Since dropping out of college he has just kind of floated through life, but with the Viet Nam war raging he is drafted and decides to enlist in the Air Force. His time in the service takes him around the country and eventually around the world as he learns about life and love.

The story is a good read with an interesting philosophical bent. Tom is a lifelike character who has some basis on George's experiences in the Air Force. There were a few parts that I felt were a little slow, but this book is pretty far outside my usual tastes. I would give this story 3.5 stars.
