Describing the Book
Other than that, ‘Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff’ features Bob Honey, a boomer working for different small companies that include him serving as a part time assassin. In it, is an additional character that takes up after El Chapo. Of course, given that Sean Penn had previously interacted with El Chapo, a famous Mexican drug lord, it is only normal for him to be quite familiar with the character.
When it comes to his choice of language used, Sean Penn attempts to use the normal ambitious prose coupled with a stylish touch that flourishes into a sticky as well as an overwrought piece. In some context, he travels into conspiratorial messages that call for more mental input in order for an individual to understand the content. For instance, there is a scene that covers a shooting in Dallas where five police officers are involved. In that scene, the media had played a key role in influencing the mass shooting of policemen.
In an interview with The Vogue, it is clear that even after quitting his acting career to become an author, there are a few critics who seem unpleased by his work. Nevertheless he is not shaken by their remarks as he stands by his work and promises to keep it up. Penn who is now using his talent to address issues that affect that society is convinced that the world needs more people who can portray such issues through art.
