I'll be honest and admit the title of this book is the first thing that drew me in. The second was that it's written by Kage Alan, who I've come to discover has a fabulous sense of humor, and, oh yeah, he can pen a story, too. So I decided I wanted to take this trip with Kage, or, more accurately, with Andy, the main character, and see where he led me. I was looking for laughs, which I found, but I also found a poignancy I hadn't expected and that made the whole book just that much better.

As soon as I saw the title of this book, I had to read it. This quirky, funny book starts out a little slow but then picks up and has tons of LOL moments. Not a 5 star read for me because there's no sex and the fade to black scene towards the end of the story was disappointing. I still really enjoyed the book and I'm looking forward to reading the sequel.

Perhaps the first bit was needed to show what an assho

I laughed a lot as I read this. After, I thought about the parts which were more challenging than slapstick. This book lingers in my mind.

A bunch of unpleasant people are saying unpleasant words and doing unpleasant things, which makes this book a very unpleasant reading. Nothing funny. I gave up.
