JTB-DQ ~ Prologue

Read these lines from a review of Jim the Boy, and tell me what you think.
"Jim is 10. His mother is a widow. They live in the small town of Aliceville with Jim's three uncles, Zeno, Coran and Al. And they're content."
1. Does it make you want to read the book? If you like thrillers, it could be a turn-off. Did reading the prologue change your mind?

I don’t have access to "Jim the Boy” I checked the library and Kybo book store (Koreas version of Barnes and Noble) they have an Ok size foreign section. But no one has this one and I need 6 to 8 weeks to order from B&N. I will be keeping up with your commits and see what I am missing. While ya'll are reading Jim I am starting "A wolf at the Table" by Augusten Borroughs. It is pretty good so far but I find it hard to believe this is a true story.
