Reviews

Review by: I. Readalot on Aug. 11, 2011 : (no rating)
I made myself read ten percent of this book and found it to be boring. A man is trying to determine who to take on a canoe trip with him because his wife doesn't want him going alone. Ninety percent of it was rambling narrative that I suppose was meant to be funny. In my opinion it’s a two at best. Maybe some people like the slow and drawn out narrative, I didn’t. I won’t rate it and let the folks who like this do the rating.

Cork is a jerk. The story here goes up and down the scale of understanding but when you get to the end,.....it is a real laugh. I read this one twice. I love these characters.

Review by: W. Addison Gast on April 26, 2011 : star star star star star
Lenny has a winner here! All the characters, beginning with Dwyane and his spectacular single sex life and description of his playmates is a book in itself. Then there is Phil. You have to read the story to really get into Phil's mind. The dialogue, especially Aisha's, is done so well that you actually think you might have married her yourself. Storytelling is an art. To write as you would tell a story is another talent that is rare. Lenny has that gift. This one was free and it served its purpose well---it showed me that this is an author that can write dialogue that makes you think that he is talking right into your face. We'll buy the next one for sure.
