Reviews of Some Like It Hot-Buttered by Jeffrey Cohen

John Kincaid reviewed on July 30, 2020

I found this book very entertaining, not exactly laugh-out-loud but a lot of smiles &/or eye-rolling. The main character, Elliot Freed, is full of sarcasm - aimed towards both himself and the world as a whole.
There is also a lot of reminders of comedy movies, although the movies and their titles may not be known to people under the age of 50 years. They are movies when comedy was an art, not the stupidity of 90% of the trash produced in the last 30 years. If you are familiar with the movie Young Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) and have a copy of it, then you'll be digging into your shelves to revisit it for a good evening laugh.( It's always been a favourite of mine.) I did, and so did the rest of the family.
The blurb gives you enough information, so I won't go further. There is humour, suspense, a bunch of twists/red herrings, and the length of the book gives it plenty of time to develop the characters.
Recommend this book.
