A great read that transcends easy categorization, like a cross between a very fine old wine and an exotic, cutting-edge cocktail. The writing is witty and worth savoring, with a colorful cast of characters caught in a plot that keeps the pages turning and won't let go. Wise, ironic, suspenseful a...

I enjoyed the book but found it hard to follow the story line because there were several different breaks to follow another character without giving me any connection into the full story. However, by the end all the connections came together. I won this book through GoodReads.

2 1/2 stars -- because there's potential
I wish I could say that I enjoyed this book, but in all honesty, I didn’t. It had potential; it had great characters, but it had so many problems. First, it’s written like a bad comedy routine, lots of ridiculous rejoinders and non-sequiturs. People and th...

I had to keep track of characters and how they are connected. Once I was through the first few chapters I was good tho...

I received a copy of this through the Goodreads Giveaway Program.
Reading the biography of the author, you can understand how he can write such a tale. Not all of this can come from the imagination! I don't doubt there are people out there who can experience all these two friends did, and still w...

First things, first; I received a free copy provided by the author through a random giveaway. I have to admit I am not a fan of this book but perhaps I'm the wrong demographic. The only thing which prevented this being a one star review was the development of the supporting characters. Frankly, t...

This was not my cup of tea. Not saying that some folks might like it but I did not. I found it chaotic and confusing and totally unbelievable. I did not like the characters and could not get into the story. I agree with others that it was fast unfortunately it also did not make much sense. I alwa...
