Read in August, 2008

ok, and i thought I had lost my marbles?!

this book was one of the most confusing stories i've read in a LOONNNGGGG time!!!

you've got a guy named Joe LaFlam who's real name is John Doe; he pretends and ACTS like he lives in Seattle, Washington, only he's REALLY living in Vancouver, Canada; his father is dead, only he's not; his client's sister is kidnapped, only she really isn't, but then she is ALONG w/ his client, then their mother, THEN their other sister; his mother is really his aunt, who's the sister of the kidnapped mother, who's bodyguard is the kidnapper who's his father who's also a burnt out preacher of a charismatic church; the lost are raptured but the saved aren't, and Jesus isn't coming back, and ...


i read every single word of this book, more than once, and i'm still not sure exactly what it was i read.

maybe it was meant as a comedy and i just don't have enough of a sense of humour?!

if i didn't know better, i'd have sworn i was overdosing on medication while reading this thing, only problem is, i'm not ON any medication right now!!!

Sarah I just read this book. I agree with you. This is the perfect book if you want your brain to explode. Otherwise, it was just plain awful.
