If you’ve ever read any of Sean Penn’s books, you’ll be one to tell that he writes with a lot of complexions and large words and this is exactly what he does in his new book Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff. The book is much similar to a lot of other surreal books with the setting taking place in an almost dystopian society. It covers many segments of different obstacles and paths, much like you’d see in a lot of these style books.
But there is a twist with Mr. Penn’s book, as he greatly appreciates a person with a wide array of vocabulary, he incorporates this into his writings. For somebody who has never read a book or article of Mr. Penn’s, it might be in your best interest to keep a dictionary or thesaurus handy. The literary choices throughout the book may leave even advanced level readers in the dust if they aren’t prepared for descriptive and thought-provoking wordplay.
One other suggestion that Marc Maron, who had a podcast interview with Sean Penn, is to read Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff in sections. He mentions it is not necessarily a book you would just want to sit down and read through in a short period. You will need time to consider what is happening and allow yourself to absorb the content through your own thoughts and wonders.
Now to the book itself. In the book Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, we see a lot of expansion on perspective in society today, from modern social issues to an array of stories. The book will keep you guessing with reflective times, times of awe, and definitely some moments of despair. As you follow the main characters through their journey, you begin to feel for each one of them as see who they truly are.
As some say, Sean Penn has created an amazing book and will lead many people to adventure when they pick it. Follow Bob Honey through his adventures in Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.
