I love Jonathan Tropper! I love how real his characters are, how easily you fall into his world and fall in love with his characters. It gives me hope that maybe mankind isn't all that bad. I'm so glad my coworker randomly bought his books then lent them to me (without even reading them first) because otherwise I might not even know about these books!

He makes me laugh out loud, and I love his dialogue:

“We don’t have twin telepathy.”
“Of course we do, it’s just subtle, like...flesh-colored nail polish.”
I grin. “Like...central air.”
“Like...a white wine buzz.”
“Like...Mel Gibson’s Australian accent in Lethal Weapon.”

I love how he writes pieces into his work that only people of a certain age group might understand, like how there wouldn't be anyone holding up boom boxes in the middle of the rain.

I'm just in love with him. I hope he writes and writes and never stops.

Andrea I feel exactly the same way as you do, although, since I'm 65, I'm sure you're much younger. He appeals to everyone, IMHO.
