Wow! This was painful to read. I mean, when was the last time you read a book and felt really embarrassed? Kind of like that time in grade or high school when your friend shoved their short story in your hands and asked you what you thought of it... and it was so completely and utterly terrible that you almost couldn't keep a straight face telling them it was great and they were really creative. I'm no book snob, and I certainly have nothing against Brian Horeck. But I would have to say that the literary mistakes made with this publication, coupled with the constant and blatantly obvious mugging to the Northern Ontario audience place this book squarely in that kind of "SUCKS GNARD!" category.

It is, however, a very good example of why the vanity press is held in disdain. I honestly encourage anyone to buy and read it (thus supporting Brian H.) just to see how bad it really is.
