This was rather quirky. A little slow to get off the ground and when it did, it really only ambled along at a rather unhurried pace, BUT it was rather addictive. For a start, who can resist a main character called Nigel Q. Bunnytail?

So, who is he? Well, as we are reminded quite frequently, he’s a ‘big Bohemian’, who can’t shake off his mantle of doom and gloom after losing the love of his life. There’s only one thing to do: to leave his lifelong friends and rather mundane life Philadelphia and r

I'll start by saying that I'm not really the target audience for this book. This is a book about a man, by a man, and it's a very masculine perspective that may not always appeal to women. However, it can't be denied that Parker has a talent with words. The prose is snappy and clever (bordering on too clever from time to time, but that's better that dry and dopey any day). While the story is not terribly exciting, it's not meant to be - this is simply a coming of age story for those who are no l ...more

Nigel Q. Bunnytail is moving to Spokane, and the event has precipitated a national day of mourning at the cafe peopled by the characters he loves most: Kymber "K.C." Cuccinatta, Bogdana "Bogey" Pahlanovich, Styles Parkwater -- all will miss him terribly.

But it's not just the quirky names and outrageous characters that will capture your heart in this excellent novel. It's the author's flawless and masterful command of the English language that you will remember most.

Mondo Bohemiano is a sometimes funny, sometimes ironic and largely satirical tale of a man desperately trying to leave the love of his life behind, and, perhaps, grow up a bit in the process. Nigel Q. Bunnytail is our anti-hero, a man living a frenetic and aimless life in Philadelphia, hanging out with friends he's mostly known since earliest childhood, sleeping with many women, working in a job perhaps not up to his skill level, pining for his beloved Millicent.

The aimlessness and frenzy of Ni

Crisp and contemporary, Quentin J. Parker's wholly original "Mondo Bohemiano" is a fun read through and through. Coming in at a relatively short 51,000 words, the novel reads like a modern treatise on the 21st century young person. The protagonist here is Nigel Q. Bunnytail, clearly an indicative name of his uniqueness and quickness. He makes the courageous decision to leave his comfort level of living in Philadelphia for the unknown terrain of Spokane. After suffering a relationship demise of m ...more

I was given an e-version of Mondo Bohemiano by author Quentin J. Parker for review.

This story is very different from the other books I've reviewed. I liked it a lot, but it is difficult to put his story into a nice neat pigeon hole.

On the surface it is, to me, a story of unfulfilled love. It is not strictly unrequited love I think because the two know they are in love, they just can't seem to make it work. The story is actually about how the male half of this unlucky in love duo is trying to

This was a surprisingly fun read. I went into this book thinking it was going to be a tale lamenting the “one that got away” scenario.

It was that…but much more.

The character names are on point. They are interesting and in many cases…downright funny. The slang and character description are flamboyantly unique.

I LOVED this book.

Nigel Q. Bunnytail is everything his name promises. He is flashy and yet intellectual. He is flamboyant and yet subtle. He is caring and violent. He is wonderfully unique

A Whacky Bunny Feast

I have never read anything like this. Nigel Bunnytail is a striking, charismatic, woman eating man and is trying his best to recover from a broken heart.

The first part of the book introduces you to Nigel and his eclectic mix of friends. It took me a while to get to know them all. Nigel lives and works in Philadelphia and I was drawn into his chaotic world, kicking and screaming. By chapter nine the pace changes and everything starts to make sense. Quentin Parker is a smart w

The foreword was really great and I was excited to be able to read this book. Sadly the book itself is nothing like the foreword. The story had nice little touches like the mc sliding like a rockstar into his bathroom but this couldn't keep me reading. I just didn't get into the story, part because of the strange writing style, part because of the following things.

Sometimes there was so many information it felt like info dumping (the part about the computer game for example).

Bohemian Meets Heartbreak!

This was a very quirky and unique tale of heartbreak, and lost of love. At first, this reader wonders how a character named Nigel Q. Bunnytail can be taken seriously, but I soon found out. It's an interesting tale and I loved the characters, and how real this "big" man truly was. This story and its characters will truly capture your heart, and the indication that this is only a first book in a series, will make you want more. Here's hoping this debut author writes more

DNF @ 53%

I don't why I couldn't finish this book.I just didn't get into the story at all.
I'll probably pick this book back up again later on in the year, but for now, it's going to be put down as DNF.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, so my hostility is a superpower, not a character flaw. As a child, I was a visual artist with an interest in science and technology. The original Star Trek gave me an appreciation for astronomy, and Star Wars gave me a zest for air combat. Later on, I became a pop culture nerd who was certified to fly a plane before he was licensed to drive a ca ...more
