Bittersweet: A Savage Memoir by George Savage is just that, his memoir. In this book George talks about everything in his life; family, growing up, jobs, cars, places traveled, and medical issues. There is very little that he does not cover in this book.
I was very surprised about how this book was written. From the publishers summary I was expecting a much different story than just this man’s memoir. I think this book would be more suited for just passing among friends and family (or a freebie on amazon.com).
In all honesty I really did not enjoy this book. After the first couple chapters, I just wondered “Why am I reading this?” There is so much detail in this book about his life; I guess I can only seeing friends and family caring about what car he had in 1951 and what he swapped it for. This man lived in an amazing era of history and I found his childhood stories very interesting. The family loss from TB, the wars, depression are all amazing times to read about how individuals and families survived and adapted during such harsh times. But this was only a portion of this story
