When Gilbert (don’t call him Gil, only his wife calls him that) gets sick and tired of getting his car broken into, he sets out to turn his car into a death trap for would-be thieves. What seems like a crazy idea at first gets him the desired results and the attention of his neighbor and the local police force.
From Gilbert’s obsession over tuna fish with pickles to his insistence to not being called Gil, this book has lots of laughs, lots of violence, and shows this author has lots of potential to have a hell of a writing career.
This book deserves a large audience. Although it is hard to pigeonhole it into a specific genre, I feel safe labeling it as a laugh out-loud, ass kicking, fun and wild read. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy and strap yourself in…it’s gonna be a long enjoyable ride.
At a moment when Donald Trump is still doing well in the Republican primaries, it's also a nice attempt at imagining the anger/frustration-over-impotence of the late-middle-aged man. I'm not saying this is political analysis, but it plays with the fantasies in that direction.
Clever work, and a fast-moving pleasure to read.
Highly recommended--but bring a sense of humor and a strong stomach--or at least a sick bag.
