Ovenman has a demographic. People who lived from the 90's, know skateboarding, know punk rock, and have visited Florida (and not just the beaches). If you're like me and almost all of these things apply to you, this book is likely to be relatable and to entertain. Jeff Parker really captures the aimless feel of these characters living day to day. From drunken escapades to acting on the fly, Thinfinger is an enjoyable character to follow through life. While the ending was both very satisfying and also kind of a letdown, that does not blemish what is an otherwise entertaining book. Parker's unique voice triumphs in Ovenman and if the setting and characters sound at all appealing, this book is well worth your time.
