3.75 stars - First of two "Jack" tales that bring us back into the life of I. M. Fletcher(view spoiler). It's interesting to see a glimpse of Fletch further down the road. Understandably (and unfortunately), the book insists on spending some time filling in some of the events of Fletch's life. The odd part is that it also includes two literary "clips" with a couple pages of quoted scenes from earlier books. It was st ...more
i read this because i am sick & because i just heard that Greg Mcdonald died (back in September). i love Fletch. one summer back in the day, when i was in like 5th or 6th grade, i was in a rather severe dust-up. the conflict involved me, a patch of poison ivy, and a lawn mower & left me incapacitated for over a week. i looked like eric stoltz from the movie Mask. it was horrible. anyway, reading was about the only thing i could do, so one day i went down to the Atco Library, where i happ ...more

Enjoyable, but light reading. Fletch has four deadly convicts show up as his door demanding his help and the most shocking thing is one of them says that he is his son, hereto unknown. It then spins into a pretty pedestrian adventure without a whole bunch of turns and twists although bits of it come across as almost Hiaasen-esque in their social commentary. Worth reading for enjoyment but not the strongest of the Fletch works. But if you enjoyed others, you will enjoy this.

Fletch takes a back seat in this one to his self-proclaimed son Jack, who I like a lot as a character. It's hard not to, he's basically a copy of Fletch the first, plus a guitar. Unfortunately, the plot of this one isn't as good as the adventures Fletch typically gets into, and involves infiltrating a Ku Klux Klan themed crime ring. This book relies a lot more on immature jokes than the books before it, and contains a drastically different writing style from McDonald's earlier work that I don't ...more
I view the Fletch series, after the first two novels ("Fletch" and "Confess, Fletch"), like pizza: even when it's bad, it's still pretty good. Son of Fletch fits that perfectly. Yes, it's not as good as the first couple books, but I'll read it over 99% of the drivel out there. It was entertaining, humorous, and grabbed my attention for the whole ride. It could have used some improvement here and there, but it's no big deal that an A+ work wasn't fixed to become a more solid A+ work.
It took me half the book to get the damn Chevy Chase character out of my head. Not that I dislike the first Fletch film (the second one was...well...putrid) but MdDonald's written character is altogether different, however no less appealing.
This is a simple story; it's the characters and their banter that move the reader along. This is an enjoyable light read.
