"Hysterical! This book is absolutely one of the funniest books I have ever read. Why oh why do we not hear more of this great American classic? It's about a a white man who gets accidentally thrown into slavery. Hmmmmm. (Get rest of review at www.lylu.co)"

"The Great Gatsby mesmerized me so…it was reality TV before we had it. Vicariously observing rich people behaving badly and being horrified and intrigued all at once? Yes, I think that was it. For shame, Tom, Daisy and Gatsby…for shame!"
"That Sherman Alexie told one of one of the cleverest, tricksy and inspiring stories about a homeless Indian ever! He makes homeless seem sexy! This is one of the GREATEST AMERICAN STORIES of all time."
"“This family is sooooooooooooo dysfunctional. Watching these folks will make your trips back home seem like a walk in the park!

"This is THE GREATEST AMERICAN NOVEL EVER (okay check it, not African-American novel, not feminist novel, not one-legged, Bangladeshian, lesbian/bisexual American novel- or however else the Eurocentrics would like to marginalize it-but the GREATEST AMERICAN NOVEL EVER!! LOVED IT! Hurston is double genius!"
