If you don’t like the truth, don’t read it.

All he wanted to do is put bread on the table, but the people he worked for were eating caviar at his expense.

They traveled over two thousand miles to find a new beginning and remake their lives together out from under the shadow of an overbearing small town in nowhere USA.

After the promise of work fell through, Steve was forced by necessity to take a day labor job for minimum wage. While there, he is humbled by the reality of what it is to work for so little and learns the true meaning of charity.

There is so much more to this story than I can put into words, when you are done reading it  you will have a new perspective on life.

About the Author

Christopher SharpI’ve been a construction worker for most of my life, born and raised on the east coast of the United States. With no formal education in writing or literature, my style is in a class by its self. I never aspired to be an author, but the things I’ve seen and people I’ve met have no other outlet but with the pen.

I’ve learned most things in my life by trial and error, but publishing a book was more like trial by  fire. The difference between the two is if you learn by error it’s no harm, no foul, do it a different way. By fire, the mistakes you make are cataloged in the Library of Congress for all eternity.

Reviews

Format: Paperback

The Last Ticket
Insightful and thought-provoking.
Christopher Sharp paints an interesting and eye opening picture of the lost and forgotten, exposing some of the underside of life.
As a first-time author Christopher Sharp has done what many new authors haven’t, he has found his own voice with the writing style that engages the reader.
The first chapter is cumbersome but once the preliminaries are out of the way things get moving.
The Last Ticket is written to be the story of a day laborer but it’s much more. It’s the journey of a man dealing with love and loss. Sometimes life’s events can make you feel like the world is spiraling down a drain, but with The Last Ticket despair is not part of the story, there is always hope.
I wish Christopher sharp success with his writing. I feel that this man has more stories to tell and I’m looking forward to reading them.

This book was a wonderful read! I really got into the characters. Mr. Sharp shows how deep a mans love can be for his family. The persevence of the main character and the way he views life was very uplifting to me personally and makes me view things/people/life differently.
The ending had a cool twist that you wouldn’t have expected and leads you to ponder a higher world unknown. I could go into more detail but I don’t want to give insight to the books dynamics for the new reader.

Some books you have to read to the end the to get the final chest grabber. For the main character it’s when he knows he is where he needs to be. It was is a journey that is painted with word pictures. That’s the characters side. The social side paints a picture of an endless cycle of business controlled pay scale. Day Labor makes minimum wage here in the east coast.
