Top Customer Reviews
And Guy's also his name
Your standard goof-off slacker-dude
Without a claim to fame
And then one day a phone call came
That sent him on a quest
He's forced to leave his dirty home
(More like his filthy nest)
There's something wrong with little Seth
At least he's not himself
In no time flat, Guy's pals become
A sor-cer-er and elf
It seems your quest is not complete
Without a certain mix
So they recruit a warrior
Stacked like a house of bricks
There's something evil chasing them
And monsters everywhere
Look out for buzzing little flies
And plumber's derriere
The truth of telemarketing
The huge attorney plot
All made as simple as the choice
To supersize, or not?
It's just as crazy as it sounds
With potty jokes and worse
A madcap world of fantasy
Reviewed by me in verse
A warning to you, friends of mine
And you, my dear consumer
Don't bother picking up this one
If you've no sense of humor

So, I happened to find this book while cruising around Kindle freebies. I'm surprised that the reviews are so old, and hope that this book is starting to be noticed again. (For what it's worth, the Amazon "Click to Look Inside" sample is very generous, so you can get a good idea of what's what in this book by checking that sample out.)
As I say, please note that I found this book while browsing Amazon Kindle freebies. I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
I found both books to be very funny. I would even go so far as to say "Laugh Out-Loud Funny". Not necessarily, snort-laugh... Although there was that chapter where they... Wait. It starts like this...
The `Guy' in these books.... Um... he's a guy, but he's also Guy... So, Guy and his friends go on a couple of Quests. Traveling along with this group of misfits was a heck of a ride! They are all so crazy, whacky and likeable. I would recommend these books as a good read to most anyone that has a funny bone. Even if you DON'T have a funny bone, maybe it would help you get one. Or find out where you left your other one. If you ever had one. Maybe you didn't. Maybe you were born without one. Boy, that would suck. (which brings me to Mr. Cowie's next book - about a vampire! hahahaha)
Anyway, I am gonna try to get the anthologies with two other stories about that guy, Guy. One is titled Missing and the other is... um, let me look it up. Snap! I thought there was another one! No, wait - it is called The Heat Of The Moment.
Keep writing, Norm - and I will keep reading!!! Thanks for the assortment of words. You are now, unofficially, one of my fav authors.

Actually a half-star!
This was a totally ridiculous attempt at writing a book!!
Not really a bad book, but I would not(and did not) rate this at 5 stars as some here did. Laugh out loud? Nope. Giggle to yourself? Nope. Get a little smirk on your face? Read morePublished on March 11, 2012 by G. M. Volk
