way bizarre but since I bought it at the Dollar Tree, I can get over it.

Terrible. I was trying really hard to finnish it but i just ended up skipping parts of the book. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It was a huge waste of time.

This book was written informally with a constant sense of vulgarity which was a put off to me. To say I disliked this book would be an understatement, to say I hated it, would give it too much credit. it was interesting enough that I finished reading it, it was just basically a pointless waste of time. It makes me feel better that I only paid a dollar for it at Dollar Tree.

Nothing really special about this book. The cover caught my attention, but the book wasn't captivating at all. The humor isn't my type of humor. I think I only laughed out loud once. The story-line was repetitive and silly. A prince who gets a cursed put upon him by his wife and now he's a wish granting fish? What the hell?

Good, but also a little weird perhaps. Then again talking fish aren't normal either. I liked Woody (main dude), but some of the other characters weren't so lovable (of course), because in most stories there has be be a 'bad' character to offset the 'good' character.

Some parts are funny and entertaining.
Simple fantasy with a taste of real-deal modern writing.

Would recommend for chick-lit lovers.

It was so good throughout the book, but the end was so stupid. Like... That was the only thing you cold of thought of author...

Good, cute, light, beachside read. However, the synopsis on the back cover of this book was clearly written by someone who had never actually read the book. I hate that.

This is about a man who catches a fish who promises to grant him every wish he might desire. He wishes to capture the heart of the girl he just met, but is this what he truly wants?

I didn't actually read this book but can't find a way to delete it from my books list!

What can I say? I read it in 4 hours. Better than smoking, right? Mildly trippy (as in a bit psychotropic) chick lit.

I didn't finish the book--I may pick it up again as it was borrowed from the public library. Informal writing, easy to read. Wouldn't mind owning a copy.

Several years ago, Jane May adopted a mutt from the A.S.P.C.A. and named him Miles (he happens to bear a striking resemblance to the narrator of Doggy Style). They live in New York City, where Jane is at work on her next novel.
