As I was reading this book I got a call from a friend who asked what I was doing and I said "Reading a book about a guy who lays an egg" and she said "Oh, no." That's a good sign for a bizarro book.

The story itself is pretty charming and steers itself away from being convoluted and so I believe the author might be able to do something with the right story, but this wasn't it. It was just too many misses and not enough hits.

A lot of unimportant things happen that is pretty frustrating in a novella of this size but the fact that there is a tiny summery of the upcoming chapter under each chapter header makes reading the book all but useless.

The dialogue is completely normal to totally awkward, such as, "Hey, you stupid fuck, apologize for frightening me so."

Michael That's a good start, Christy. Now, aim it at Caris, and we can get some venomous bickering literary debate goin'.

No worries. It's nothing compared to the things he thinks about you while he touches himself.
