Life and Life Only by Dave Moyer is a story about a young man and the trials and tribulations of life. If you enjoy books like Revolutionary Road then I would recommend this book. However, if you're looking for drama and the obscene then Life and Life Only wouldn't satisfy your need. The characters are wholesome, natural and good. All of Moyer's characters are full and complete, as is the story. Young men in college who need to feel everything is going to be OK should put this read on their book list because Moyer's story (and Dan's mother) reminds us all that no matter what happens, it IS going to be OK. Life and Life Only was introduced as being about "baseball and bob dylan." But Life and Life Only is so much more than that. It's a coming of age story filled with natural life events and transitions. By simply telling the story of thousands of young men (and women for that matter), Moyer pinpoints all the segments and transitions individuals make today and might could even act as a precautionary tale for us all.
