5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly Brilliant Writing !!

“”My Life As A Retail Pharmacist” had me from page one! If you have EVER worked in retail, or dealt with customers not at their best, you can feel for the main character, Adam Thomas. Written with attitude and humor, the author builds a realistic world around a character whose life has taken a huge spiral down the toilet. Adam is a pharmacist for a large retail company in an upscale northern Michigan tourist haven where he deals with the daily pressures of customers, doctors, management, everything that goes with his job. He’s good at it, even though he is getting burned out. One customer with one prescription, and one self-important busybody cost Adam his job, his reputation and his dignity. He refuses to swallow his pride and apologize, after all he didn’t do anything wrong! How does he fight back? He sues for wrongful discharge, among other things!
Unfortunately, Adam is not the quintessential rock, he is insecure, unsure and completely out of his element in this new world. His family life has always been strong, but even the home front is suffering at times. His attorney is full of himself, but good, devious, and hopefully worth what he will cost.
Although the subject matter is serious, the telling of the tale is often almost hysterical! Adam is so normal in so many ways, so out of his element in this litigious society, he is priceless as a character! Tanya Stenke-Branch, the busybody, was portrayed in larger than life evil! The question is, will Adam prevail in court or will the system roll over on him?
I HIGHLY recommend this book for its entertainment value and the author’s refreshing look at the world! ”

Adam Thomas, fictional retail pharmacist, is someone most people can relate to. He becomes disillusioned in his job but has a family to provide for. He feels his life slipping out of control and uses humor to get through the day until he makes a decision to do what is right and consequences be damned…then his life truly spirals out of control. He finds himself placing trust in others as he seeks to get his life back in order. He doesn’t like not having all the questions answered but he lets others do their job. He gives a glimpse into his private life so we get a feel for Adam Thomas, husband and father, but the story is about Adam Thomas the pharmacist. I enjoyed reading as Mr. Thomas’ life falls apart and comes together again.

  I think most people would be surprised to discover how interesting a story about a pharmacist suing his former employer for wrongful discharge could be.  The characters in the story are very interesting, and the author’s pace and story line made the book a quick read.  Kudos to “Adam Thomas”, whomever he really is!
