Review

Phil Villarreal's "Stormin' Mormon" doesn't just storm, it rocks and rolls to a quirky beat all its own. With a keen eye for character and an ear for laugh-out-loud dialogue, Villarreal has written an entertaining, off-the-wall romantic comedy. -- John Fusco, February 11, 2008

The novel remains fun and humorous rather than sinking into a pit of mean-spirited Mormon bashing, as the plan might suggest. -- Astrid Duffy, Arizona Daily Wildcat, Feb. 21, 2008

I am glad a friend passed this on to me to read. I would have hated to have to buy it. It is a story not unlike many other stories. Drags on at times to the point that I finally closed the book and threw it into the discount book pile at my local bookstore.

Using Mormonism as a way to irritate ones partner away might sound funny in idea, but as executed in this novel it is amazingly derivative. If the author was looking to shock for comedy, than why not have his characters suddenly become Muslim and try to run their partners off by making vague threats about the government.... ah, thats because Mormons are an easy target but Muslim comedy starts riots.

I actually read this book. I might be the only reviewer (save the author) to do so.

My take: Saul is a shock jock with a tough on-air persona. Jerusha, a femme fatale who charms her way into anything she wants (save the music industry), selects Saul as interviewee for a school project after hearing him spout some sports douchebaggery on the radio. The two meet and instantly connect. Jerusha refuses to break up with her nice boyfriend, Jared (a nod to the Mormon husband-wife team behind Napoleon Dynamite?), even though she doesn't seem to like him. Saul is too much of a wimp to dump his hot girlfriend. They make a pact to pretend to be Mormons so their insignificant others will end their relationships, and they can be happy together. (*Spoilers ahead) Their weird plan (immediately) succeeds and Saul and Jerusha begin spending copious amounts of time together. Then Jerusha cheats on a test and gets kicked out of school, Saul gets her a job at his radio station, Saul goes nuts on air and is put on suspension, and... Jerusha takes over his radio show! OMG! Ultimately, the two realize that witty banter is all they really share, so they become co-hosts on Saul's show and set about winning back their old lovers. Saul's lady has, sadly, moved on. Jerusha, after rediscovering her own faith, finds out Jared has been secretly becoming a Mormon for her.

The premise appealed to me, but a fatal flaw in the plot that prevented me from enjoying this book. Saul is a wuss. He's not in love with his girlfriend, but he refuses to break up with her because she'll cry. WTF. Like a badass, he tries to return some stolen CDs to Best Buy and, when he thinks the manager's caught him, nearly wets himself at the sight of a security guard. Jerusha, on the other hand, is hot stuff, and she knows it.

I did not enjoy this book because I do not understand much about Mormons. I knew this before coming in to the book so this is a bit biased, I do enjoy animated books though and I felt it should have had more of that. It drags on a bit at times even though it is short.
