The Shell of a Person

We rated this book:


At one point or another, everyone ponders their purpose in life. They stumble from odd job to odd job, never finding that sense of accomplishment and understanding their true calling in life. New author Lance Pototschnik’s memoir, The Shell of a Person, takes readers along for the ride as he questions his future, while volunteering at a sea turtle rescue encampment in Costa Rica.

It all sounds so exotic and mysterious, working to help protect and save the lives of sea turtles. Pototschnik’s humorous witty banter makes this a fun and interesting book to read. He mingles the present events with recollections from his youth, adolescence, and past jobs, and he has an epiphany realizing this isn’t just to save these baby turtles, but also to find himself, somehow, in the mishmash of strange characters, and to understand the point of his life. Does he find it? I won’t tell, but there are memorable passages that will yank at your heart, and even more that will make you laugh. I loved this book and hope he’ll write another book someday and tell us where he’s at and what he’s doing with his life. I want to see this guy succeed!
