At the beginning I thought the main focus was on  Tyler,and his emotions,and thought  process of him growing up with an abusive father that he doesn't want to be like,But it also starts going into so many characters thoughts, and how they're thinking. I kind  of lost focus of what the book was all about.The story  just had entirely to many  people to focus on,and how they're thoughts and feeling mix into the story.All the characters of the book took away from the oringinal story,I'm guessing that is.Because it flowed into  so many  different direction of different  peoples situation,and there thinking process,and feelings.I simple tried to see where the author  was taking the story,But I was  lost in the process of figuring out who was the main character,and why,what all these  people played a major role in.

Here is an  synopsis from the book:Water Flows is a gritty urban tale that tells the story of a young man who believes he has lost his woman to another man when in fact, he has lost her to herself. To cure his addiction for this woman, he becomes addicted to another and just like a new drug, this high is more potent than the last. However, what he's found in this new woman may cost him his life as well as hers.
