Odessa is run by gangs and mafia, offering starving young boys the promise of a full belly and money to burn... that’s exactly what Urii craved. He lived in one of the roughest areas in the city where being top dog meant being mean and ruthless. Violence and pain followed him until he left the criminal world behind and vowed to become a better person.
In the beginning of book, I explain reason I wrote this book in my words instead of polishing too much. I would like to add to same subject. I realize that I need show to people that we don’t need be perfect to do something amazing.
Society want us to be perfect at work, perfect in our personal relationships, be perfect wife or husband, father, mother etc. But by doing that we are only imitating each other, not be ourselves. Our values and life principles seems are based on society’s opinion. When we do that we stop being ourself, and become afraid to do the mistakes in eyes of others. Don’t do that….Be yourself, mistakes and all. It is good.
