Just about everyone has been bored with their life at some point, but what if someone offered you a new life - a new adventure? Guy Leatherman is bored with his life, stuck in a job he hates, and accidentally entered a contest he knew nothing about by wishing one evening into the sky that he could "experience something new." As the old adage goes, be careful for what you wish for.

After stepping into a strange light coming from his closet, Guy wakes up in a different body - and a different planet

I want to thank NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read this book for my honest opinion.

Guy was bored and frustrated with his job, his life, and his overall existence. He was seriously contemplating suicide until he seen a weird light coming from his closet. He thought it was just alcohol induced.
Yet he still was drawn to the light.
His whole life changed thus making him realize that he really needs to be careful on what he wishes for.

A Life Spectacular... It's ridiculously funny.
When Guy finds himself in a different body and in a different planet, life as he knows it changes forever. The situations he has to go through range from being a circus member to being kidnapped by pirates... And those aren't even the most weird experiences he encounters.
This is a great book if you want to have a good time, laugh and relax, and think a bit about having a spectacular life.
Thanks Netgally and the publisher for my ARC of this book.

This must be one of the most enjoyable books I've ever read. The humor is totally my type and the plot kept me hooked. I'm not an avid reader so for any book to keep me interested long enough to finish it is already saying a lot.

I'm not typically into "wacky" stories, sci-fi or not. This book was pretty good light read. The primary character was well written and dialog was decent. I also like a happy ending and this fit the bill. Recommended.
