Diary of an Oxygen Thief
Transcript of Diary of an Oxygen Thief
Where was it?
This story took place all over. it started off in London, Britain. Then he ended up in St. Lacroix, Minnesota.
Since he is anonymous, he doesn't have a name, but his life is the conflict, this is a memoir, and his whole life is portrayed to be a struggle. He struggles the majority of his life with an alcohol problem and he always has the desire to hurt girls, even after getting help
An important scene in the book is when the narrator realizes that his father is probably the cause for the way he is today, "Maybe this stuff links to other stuff that happened later...Maybe I was emulating the only relationship I'd ever had..." (anon 41). This is important because the whole book he seems to be looking for a reason for why he is the way he is, and here, I feel he finds his reason.
I loved this book. I knew I would even before I started reading it. I loved how often the author related and made connections to his current life and how the events helped to shape him to the man he had become. He often made it seem as if these bad things hadn't happened he wouldn't be as good as he is now. I would absolutely recommend this book to a friend.
To sum it up...
This memoir was about a suffering alcoholic who had an addiction to hurting girls, not physically, but mentally hurting them and their feelings. The book contains countless stories of girls (the ones he could remember) which he had broken. The book then goes into how he recovered from alcoholism and became very successful but still always has the want to hurt more girls, he loved doing it.
