    ePUB beechesgardenservicescouk  Nobody's Fool PDF EPUB ´ nobody's book, fool free, Nobody's Fool PDFEPUBThe main character of this book Donald ‘Sully’ Sullivan is a routinely careless man who left his wife and had almost nothing to do with raising his son He’s had an affair with a married woman for twenty years and he’s lusting after yet another man’s wife Sully also drinks and gambles on a near daily basis At one point in this book he pimp slaps a woman and there's another part in which he engages in an act that probably meets the legal definition of animal cruelty Sounds like a real bastard doesn’t he? Actually Sully is one of the most likable characters I’ve read in some time and most of the damage he inadvertently does to others is trumped by the amount he does to himselfIn the blue collar town of North Bath in upstate New York Sully is a 60 year old laborer with a bum knee that he injured on a job but rather than follow the advice of his
