Fascinating concept. Sad mess. Disappointed

I really can't think of a single good thing to say about this book.

The authors jump around too much for most peoples taste in reading as well as use too many unneeded and normally unknown words that take away from the story instead of adding to it. This book is not one that I will be keeping on my book shelf. It will be going back to the thrift shop where I found it and where it honestly belongs.

I don't know if this quite lived up to the reread. There is quite a bit of golf - and thank goodness I had a golf unit in high school PE - and there are an awful lot of characters. But the second half, give or take, is interesting and degenerates into just plain silly. It's a fun read, and I'll forgive the goofiness because c'mon, it was written by nine different authors!

For anyone who liked this - or wanted to like it - I definitely recommend Christopher Brookmyre. Goofy hijinks, fair share of

I was interested in the concept, each chapter written by a different author, but they kept killing off and reviving characters all the time it was nonsense. After the first couple chapters most of the story was thinly veiled sexual innuendo and raunchy jokes.

A rousing yarn of a golf story from a dozen top writers. Neat idea and a must for any golfer...although there is a bit of sex to wade through.

I really enjoyed this book, my only disappointment was how long it took to get to the good stuff. I almost stopped reading it at the beginning because of the golf stuff. Glad I stuck with it.

Read about 100 pages. Too many characters. Not enough story. Should have been funnier.
