A really fun book and even more impressive for it being the author's debut novel. Haight wastes no time diving into the action and it makes for a fast-paced, enjoyable read. The chapters are quick and the structure of the story always leave you interested to find out what's going to happen next. The characters are well-developed and I found it easy to picture the characters and scenes as I read. This book could make for a fun movie too. I highly recommend and look forward to the possibility of a ...more

A great debut novel! Really fast paced, I found it hard to put down. Really speaks to a lot of the trials and frustrations that I think are unique to the millennial generation. I found it very relatable, definitely a good book to take on Spring break.

Jack & Coke isn’t bad for a debut novel. Amidst the political intrigue (of which could have gone a little further) there are hints of a great central character. One that I wouldn’t mind revisiting when he’s a couple years older and a couple years wiser. Parts of the story seem to be directly inspired by the television show Silicon Valley, but it’s not a bad thing. I only wish the pacing was a little tighter and the chapter breaks happened in a more natural way. I look forward to further ...more

A fun and fast read! I enjoyed the multiple veins in the storyline and especially the thread about startup culture...great insight to how it likely really is! I read John Grisham's new book right after this one and was surprised at how SLOW his writing was compared to Haight's.

Also - (spoiler alert), I am currently hunting down my Mark McGuire rookie card!

Great debut for first time novelist, Jimmy Haight. The book is fast paced and difficult to put down, I read it in a day and a half! It really speaks to the ways media effects so many things in our lives and how the ways they do that are starting to change.

What a fantastic debut! This was a great read from start to finish. I brought it on vacation and found myself wrapped in the story from cover to cover! I truly enjoyed reading this and felt as if I knew the characters because they were so relatable and well-described. Highly recommended!

Jack and Coke was an outstanding book. I enjoyed it immensely. It surprised me because I usually don’t read literary fiction titles. I much prefer my sci-fi and fantasy, however, the book was recommended to me and I gave it a shot. I’m sure glad that I did. It had me hooked with the first page and it didn’t disappoint four hours later when I turned the last page from a single reading session. I will break down what I liked, disliked, and some technical aspects. Minor spoilers will follow.

Excellent book from start to finish. A different writing style than I'm used to, with short chapters and frequent jumps to different locations or parts of the story, but I was hooked from page one. Contained a good number of twists that I did not see coming, and kept me wondering what was going to happen next. Overall, would absolutely recommend to anyone intrigued by business, news, crime, or growing up in today's political climate. Great work, Jimmy!
