This book was a genuine find! I like to add variety to my bookshelf and I'll be the first to admit that I have a funny bone that's itching for a really good read every once in a while. I also mix in a ton of other genres as well, but I'm willing to take a chance on something that just SOUNDS interesting. This started back when my father gave me his copy of "A Confederacy of Dunces" when I was in high school (and with that shared experience we started line-sharing which was special) and continues ...more

This was honestly one of the funniest books I've ever read! So unusual to come across a truly FUNNY book (not that I go looking for them mind you) but you know what I mean. I've read some novels that had funny scenes or maybe "humorous" is the better word, tucked into a much wider story. "The Nimrod" is not like that. It's unique in many respects such as the fact that the protagonist, Gary Sloane, is inadvertently out to tickle your funny bone. Not that he knows it which is what I liked best ...more

"What a long strange trip it's been..."

From the small Cape Cod town of Mashpee, to the Pacific coast north of Santa Monica, Gary Sloane does indeed have a long, and at times, VERY strange trip indeed.

If Murphy ever had need of a poster child, then Gary would be in the top five. From a stripper who lost a fight with a Remmington (hair clipper, that is), to a dock-hand whose name, Low-Tide, is only slightly better than the smell permanently emanating from his pores, Gary continually finds himself

I loved this book so much that I'm considering going back immediately and reading it over again. It might be the funniest thing I have ever read, and that's saying something. I read it on the train (a LONG train ride) and was snorting and laughing out loud on every page. Fantastic, hilarious story of a guy, Gary Sloane, seriously down on his luck. Road-tripping, mind-bending, wonderful fun. Love it!

Not quite a five star but real close. Some parts of this book were so funny I was crying and could barely get through the antidote. Extremely entertaining. Not a read for those who can't stand an awkward moment.
