I also grew to like Johnny's character a lot. He is simple and not the brightest but he also came across as sincere. He was crude and insulting and a bit selfish, but in the end, he came through for his friends. As I was reading, I could almost picture a TV episode taking place in somewhere like New Jersey. In my mind they had Jersey accents and were dealing with mobsters instead of just gangsters. I love it when I can see the story in my mind. That's how I knew I was hooked. I had a lot of fun with this book.
All in all, I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick, yet fun and entertaining, read.
It's about the goofy and slightly dark misadventures of a gigantic idiot, and it has more than a few parts that made me laugh out loud (which was probably a little awkward for the guy sitting next to me).
Anyway, it's only $0.99 on Kindle, and if you don't get a buck's worth of entertainment out of it, well then damn you are one cheap person. Personally, I went for the paper copy (if I'm going to be forced to read, I'd better have some physical proof) you that was a great deal as well.
Volume 2 is already out, so I've ordered that. Will post a review once it arrives.
The author uses very precise language, and creates appropriately cringe-worthy situations in this somewhat tongue-in-cheek story, which this reviewer was delighted to find had more twists than the average bag of pretzels.
Tory's style reminded me of one of my favourite US writers, Carl Hiassen, and I recommend this book to fans of humour, satire, and crime fiction. It is available on Amazon.com.
Four stars out of five from me
How does he do it? By following the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) 12 Step Guide, of course.
Somehow this all makes perfect sense in the madcap mind of Johnny Tee. The result is a roller coaster ride of hilarious antics.
Although truly an original concept, if I could compare this book to another of my other favorite series it would be the “My Man Jeeves” stories by P.G. Wodehouse. Both authors utilize laugh-out-loud, off the wall humor and preposterously hilarious situations.
Overall, an exhilarating book that is impossible to put down.
