As soon as I read the characters in this book (Noro Myx, Miss Lipps, the small giant, and the tall dwarf) I knew I would love it. I knew this writer had a sly sense of humor and I was right.

The Peaceful Affair was such an amusing book to read. I could not put this one down because it made me feel good. Sometimes you just get a book that sets a mood that amuses and makes you feel good about things. This was just such a book.

It’s the sort of book I will buy in paperback for friends in chemo. I kno

This was a free eBook I recently downloaded. I did not read very far before I realized that this book was just not for me, hence the one-star rating. I did discover, however, that "flied" is an accepted term in baseball.

I did not finish this book. I just couldn't get into it. I don't feel this rating is accurate, though. Maybe it got really good later....
Forget the story, it's hard to keep track of all the twists and turns. Read this for the wonderful use of language, word play, alliteration, great characters with playful names, and the fun use of real history twisted into a new story.
I gave up on this book..just couldn't get into it. I only read 30% of it.
Very absurd, silly book. Not worth reading
