I don't laugh out loud too often when reading humorous stories, but this book got several loud belly laughs from me. Julia is a quirky, spunky, well developed character, and Romeo is a sweet secondary character who enjoys and sometimes manages the crazy shenanigans that Julia gets herself into. They are a perfect compliment to each other. Love that relationship.
This glimpse into being a woman who owns a car dealership sheds some light on some interesting dynamics between the sexes. The fact that Julia takes shiz from no one will make you like her even more. Great writing, vivid details, hilarious dialogue, and snappy pacing. This story will make you laugh, smile, and cry a little before you put it down, and once you put it down you'll miss Julia and Romeo, and even the crazy car lot.
Julia Karr is the Stephanie Plum of repo and car dealership madness with just as much spunk, sass, and snark that makes strong women everywhere stand up and cheer. Can't wait for book two!
This is K.C. Hilton's first book for adults, and it chronicles the life and times of Julia Karr who co-owns a used car lot with her husband. What we get here is a story-by-story, chapter-by-chapter account of all the insane encounters Julia has everyday as she tries to serve customers who probably don't deserve her service. Bitchy lowlifes, angry old men, thieves, weirdos... snakes... Julia has seen it all. We follow her story as she fights to stay composed amid the calamity, and as she obsesses over the technology of a particular toilet that has the badass ninja capability to flush golf-balls with no backup.
I have read many of Hilton's other books, which were all fantasy, but I was unsure if this one would be totally for me. I decided to read it regardless and I'm glad I did. This is actually my favorite book K.C. has written, and I could not be more proud of her.
Badass Ninja Toilet is a hysterical, wild, and relatable story inspired by K.C. Hilton's actual experience as a used car-lot owner. It's clear that Hilton has a personal connection with the material. She is in her story-telling groove here and writes like a pro. Her narrative voice is distinctive and natural, while her writing style is breezy and fun. It was easy to get wrapped up in the ludicrous events of the story. I was laughing at every turn because, as someone who has worked in customer service, I knew exactly what Julia was feeling. These things seem too insane to happen in real-life, but they do happen. And that's what makes this book so relatable.
My only nit-pick is that cars stress me out and so do car lots. There were many times during my reading that I started thinking about the check-engine light on my car and would begin feeling stressed. Cars are just a pain in the ass. That nit-pick isn't the book's fault though. However, there are some repetitions throughout that bothered me a little, like the amount of happy-dances Julia does. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and it gave me a lot of laughs... like the snake scene. That was gold.
Overall, Cars, Coffee, and a Badass Ninja Toilet comes recommended to anyone who has worked in customer service and has the scars to prove it.
