The Plot has been carefully thought out. The Characters skillfully developed. The wit of Author MICHAEL PRESCOTT is razor-edge and I found myself laughing page after page, The ONLY complaint I had with this very funny novel is the NAMES Mr. Prescott pulled from his brain - "SQUEEZER"(?), "ROBIN SAPSUCKER" (?),
"CONNOR HOGSHEAD" (?), "LIMPET SALAMANDER" (?).
These are the main characters and I just could not train my brain to accept their names. While I enjoy British humor always, I think Mr. Prescott;s "DIE STUPID" would have been a much better novel had he selected names like "Donald King", "Diana Stone", Jim Connors" and Bill Jobs".
I would love to have given a Five Star Review, but those names just kicked it down a star.
I found it a welcome change, after the initial shock !
As an editor, most of the stuff I read is pretty dull. This book surely isn't! Put your stereotypes aside and see for yourself!
I can't help but hear Joe Friday's voice as I read lines like: "You're no doubt wondering why we went to all this trouble to find you. Of course you've been one of the FBI's Most Wanted for years, not to mention America's Top Forty and David Letterman's Top Ten. But that's not why you're here."
This book reminds me of Jack Webb with Johnny Carson about 100 years ago... The Copper Clapper Caper. If you have ever enjoyed Dragnet, the old radio show, the old television show or the movie version (which is kinda old now too) you must give this book a try! Owen is one helluva author!
Thanks for the laughs!
I had to put the book down often just to absorb how ridiculously funny it was.
Warning - read in short increments, otherwise you might laugh so hard you'll start to hyperventilate and need oxygen.
However, I feel that he made a big mistake by putting this book out to the public. It is horrible and will certainly not bring new readers to his work. In fact, it may even scare them away.
They say you should be very careful about sending an email or letter that was written in the heat of the moment. He should have done the same with this book.
Don't waste your money...it's not worth even 99 cents.
That being said, I still look forward eagerly to his next "real" book!
Oh, by the way, I couldn't even finish reading the free sample...
