Don't let the unattractive cover fool you--there really is a great book within. Filtered through the jaundiced mind of the low-life protagonist, this is some of the funniest narrative and dialogue I've read in years. The humor flows naturally and never comes off as phony or forced, being totally consistent with how Moran looks at life and other people from his uniquely egocentric point of view. And the mystery is well-developed, too, with a most intriguing troop of secondary characters. I think ...more

Loved it and didn't want to stop reading. Wonderful balance of humor and mystery.

The dry wit of the main character was a nice bonus in this Kindle freebie.

This was an enjoyable little quick read. The main character, Brit Moran, was so ineffectual and inept in almost every way and so completely unaware of it that his self-musings were hilarious. This is more of a book to be enjoyed than taken seriously and enjoy it I did. He was very self-absorbed and almost completely lacking in basic social skills. However, these qualities made him more endearing, at least to me, than annoying. The basic gist is that after a very serious automobile accident, he m ...more

This was a free ebook from Amazon when I got it. The lead character is extremely self involved making for a pretty funny novel. Think Cher from the movie Clueless on steroids but less lovable while wreaking disastrous calamity.

This was a funny murder mystery book but I felt that it was lacking somewhere. The characters were not as developed as I would have liked and it was short yet too long. I say short because there could have been so much more woven into this book/storyline but it was filled with a lot of nonsense stuff that I skimmed over (such as the old girlfriend story). Overall I found it to be amusing and a quick read.

Funny and well-written. Despite that, I had trouble really getting into it because of the anti-hero narrator. Character is what usually sucks me into a story, and I just couldn't identify with Brit.

could have been a lot better. the main character is neither a hero nor an anti hero so I never felt any empathy for him. the characters are a bit under developed and I guessed the ending

A good mystery and hilarious! There were multiple times I laughed out loud while reading this. The author's style of writing was different but I loved it.

I only laughed out loud this much while reading Catch-22.
What a clever first person idiot narrative.
The cover is somewhat misleading.

I thought this book was SO funny! I haven't enjoyed a book this much in a while. I highly recommend it!

Funny, but not as funny as the reviews that had people laughing out loud. Dry wit.

It was okay. Kind of funny at times. Lot of characters - a little hard to keep straight.
