What a fabulous read! I laughed out loud so many times that people at the pool kept coming and asking me what I was reading. The Best Good Time is one of the best written and entertaining books I have read in a long, long time. Pure fun and great stories.
Mike has written a thoroughly enjoyable first novel about a little known and barely explored topic. It is difficult, nay impossible to find a novel concerning baby boomers who are relatively well adjusted men who are not from dysfunctional families with drunken fathers who beat their kids and wives.
Mike has taken a slice of life that is not marred by the angst of childish semi adults who bemoan their status and future.
B.J. and Mark actually like people and each other and have a wide circle of friends and aquaintances who actually find pleasure in each other's company with no ulterior motive. The tale is laden with rich detail about the places they visited and details of the cultural events,political,social and athletic that colored that period.
While Mike's vernacular is loaded with phrases that may be more reminiscent of Ward Cleaver or the Thin Man than the 1970s i.e" a well turned ankle and packing a rod" it is still a pleasant read thankfully devoid of unnecessary profanity or sexual details that while trying to be erotic usually have the distinction of being bizarrely counterproductive to their intent.
So if, in particular you graduated from college in the 60s or early 70s, and want a casual book to bring back some of the more pleasant memories of friendships past and songs and events lost to your memory pick this book up. You won't be disappointed. Oh by the way Mike what type of radio was in that Porsche anyway?
