Really? Most of the reviews on Amazon are so positive. It had to be good. I know in here somewhere that is something worth reading, but REALLY? I couldnt find it. Steve Reeves loses his job and his girlfriend in the same day. He is a college grad, almost 30 and was working at a bagel shop.

I kept telling myself this is how a guy would write chick lit. A Guy finding his way in life, after losing his job and his love interest. Then pulls himself together and finds his niche. Sorry this doesnt happen.

It was so full of inane stupidity, rampant illegal drug use and alcohollic binges, graphically violent fantasies, women were often just referred to as PUSSY. Was he looking for love or just place to bury his boner? Woman sure were not people to him. Oh and he does find love on the last page about 5 paragraphs, and yep now he is in LOVE.

Please tell me that men are not this shallow.

I bet my 21 year old son would find some truth and meaning in this book. I am not the target reader. I can NOT recommend this book to anyone I like on PBS.

This is a hysterical easy read that had me laughing throughout. About a young man trying to deal with life, love, and the oddities of family members.
