Torn 3: The Continued Story of an Undeserving Wallaby Drowning in a Septic Tank by Simon Williams Review

The third book in the Torn series by author Simon Williams takes readers on a humor filled and emotional roller coaster ride as he recounts his mission to reconnect with the son taken from him and the legal battle to finally be with him. Here’s the synopsis:

What is the only thing that could inspire someone to willingly walk through hell on earth? When we are prepared to die we stop apologizing for who we are, what we have done, and what we go through.

For Simon Williams, his bizarre journey through life found him looking over his balcony in his mid-forties contemplating the end. What happens next is a heartbreaking, gritty and remarkable tale told with sardonic wit, frank honesty, and a unique perspective on life as Simon struggles to rediscover the meaning of happiness.

The third book in an eye-opening series about what it means to savor every day of your existence and believe in yourself to overcome all odds. An inspirational story for anyone who faces tough times. After reading what this man goes through you will know what facing up to fear is and realize you have the power to do whatever it takes to tackle any issue in life head on.

This third book does an amazing job of showing the emotional struggle of a father wanting to have his son back in his life. Mixing this story with tales of his many adventures and life lessons while living in Los Angeles, the author does a wonderful job of blending his unique sense of humor with important life building moments that defined his struggle later in life to reunite with his son. For anyone who has been reading this series, this third book will have an ending. Whether or not it satisfies the reader is really up to you to find out, but I thoroughly enjoyed the author’s creative spin on the non-fiction genre and really appreciate the amount of care and honesty Simon Williams took to relay his struggles, from the mental and emotional toll it took on him as a father and the fight to maintain who he is as a person in the face of so much adversity.

Overall this was a great book in an informative and emotional non-fiction trilogy. This book will keep you on the edge of your emotional seats as you wait to see whether or not he can finally see his son, and open your eyes to the struggle of parental rights when it comes to two parents from different nations.
