Review: Diary of an Ex Essex Weirdo by Mark Anthony Raines

An interesting, short read with some ups and downs. This book is written in the style of a diary, you won’t find a true storyline. It is written as the author recalls information from his life. I found this book did not go very in-depth but did share the bigger moments in his life; school, meeting his wife and his diagnoses.

Though Mark has several health concerns, physical and mental he is a humorous person who lived (and continues to live) an interesting life. He shows his funny bone throughout the book by talking directly to the reader.  He even jokes with the reader about his book knowing that it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. Nevertheless everyone has a story to share and it takes strength to stand up and share yours.
