Book Description

Emmet Storch was an unemployed sponger who thought he had no calling in life. All that changed when he landed a job in the call centre at the monolithic Star Insurance where, from the very first day, he was magnificent. It was as if the very essence of insurance ran through his veins and he and his telephone were as one. Irate policyholders found comfort in his soothing words; recalcitrant contractors became polite and respectful. It would have been perfect if not for his lecherous and treacherous hormones. A humorous look at love and lust in the iAge where consumerism runs rampant and integrity can go and get stuffed.

About the Author

Eric Feka was the first of his line to shun goat herding as a profession. Now he spends most of his time reading and writing, which gives the illusion of productivity but requires very little actual effort and absolutely no goats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who gets who for drinks? January 26, 2010
By Mary S
Format:Kindle Edition
A good book! The title of this book "Love, Lust, and Petty Crime" says it all. This is a story about how a friendship starts innocently with four people (Jurgen, Voula, River, and Emmet) meeting at an insurance company. All are employed there and all become involved in one way or another. Twisted sisters, twisted brothers, she wants him, he wants the other, but, the other is dating the boss and so on. A great tongue twister with bends and curves that make you read it to the end to see who gets who. One thing is apparent, they all love each other fondly and the things they get into or are willing to do can only be understood by good friends. The author Harclubs Bartag did a good job defining these characters. It's a quick, fun book that will make you laugh out loud.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Funny, and Well Written January 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Love, Lust and Petty Crime definitely falls outside my normal reading list; I tend to go for books with action, fantasy or sci-fi. LLPC is none of these; rather, it is about the abnormality of normality. Emmet's (the protagonist) family are pretty much the standard, semi-crazy but very tight and amusing group familiar from any sitcom; the parents collect paintings of greek heroes, the mom worries and cooks, the father harrumphs and filches Emmet's porn. Growing older and still without a career, Emmet eventually finds his niche in insurance, specifically in a call center. Rapidly rising to prominence, he is embroiled even faster in office romances, petty embezzlement schemes, and internecine politics.

I really enjoyed LLPC. Well written, I found myself laughing out loud every few minutes at Bantas' often dry humor. The characters were believable, their motivations real, and their actions consistently human. The plot held together, ended well, and entertained all the way. At turns titillating, hilarious and always engrossing, I finished the book in a single setting. Strongly recommended, especially to those that enjoy humor, real-life scenarios and some romance.

Disclosure: received free copy to review; this did not have significant impact on my feelings for the book.

Love Lust and Petty Crime

I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I thought I would once again become trapped in the romance aspects of the book but this one is well written and the plot is well thought up. A good pick for any romance reader.

4.0 out of 5 stars I didnt want to like it October 9, 2011
By Nela
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Initially the title made me look twice, but the first few pages started to grip me as I took Emmet for a male Bridget Jones...some of the expressions were so colorful they had me laughing! The Greek names threw me for a bit but you can meander past all that to the tale of a man who's stuck at home but wanting to move out, always a bit shy of a full house luck-wise, and who's father likes to steal his porn. He finally finds something he can be good at as the story progresses. I'm not going to spoil it but it really is equal parts Office Space, Bridget Jones Diary, Clerks, and Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion (from a male point of view). :)
