There were times when I wanted to be Dezzy and others when I was darned glad not to be.
J.C. Weil has presented characters that make you think, make you angry, and make you wonder about life and about yourself. That's a lot for "a little novel." The female character is self-involved to the max, and thus, decides on an odd, actually several odd, schemes to satisfy, or maybe better put, find her truth. Like my last sentence, only better and more so, the writing is crisp, original, humorous, and filled with amusing metaphors. As Dezzy's experiment advances, wreaking havoc with others' lives, I wanted to be like Dezzy, to have the guts to pull some of her stunts, be totally independent. At the same time, I did not want to be someone who calls her mate Side Meat. Names are important. Dezzy loves her own name which is original and fun. This was a story of a woman who is not, probably, in love, and who isn't interested in making sacrifices for a long-term relationship. Dezzy finds her own needs and desires far more important than, well, everyone's. All of this makes the book enticing. I was caused to think about my own list of wants and methods used to obtain them. I do feel for Side Meat; he needs to do some self-examination. Who does he want to be? I think he will find gobs of love and happiness with someone else. The book is fast paced and entertaining as you learn about both of these interesting people, both lost and looking hard to be found. You will not be bored. Touch of Magenta

Format: Hardcover
This is a book that has eccentric characters and imaginative use of words, where the main character will bring up several emotional feelings within the reader and entice them to read further on. The main character's internal dialogue is intriguing yet complex, as she explores her relationship with her "man" and the relationships that enthrall her life. The author has really identified the idea of how we can get lost in all the clamor of nonsense talk and verbal noise. This book will help the reader to evaluate their own lives and grasp the understanding that silence is just as important as the spoken word. Enjoy this book and the characters that make up its substance.

The female character of this story reveals her sometimes humorous, sometimes dark, but always intense inner thoughts as she relentlessly seeks self discovery through relationships. The main male character sums up the confusion that many men experience when they fall for a woman that's "just out of reach". This is a well written book. A Tour de Force of rich similes, metaphors and a stream of thought provoking ideas about men and women and love.

I found this novel to be so cleverly written. The author is intelligent and talented, weaving such a unique tale. I'd love to be in a "Book Club" with her! The charactors she developed are endearing yet odd. I couldn't put the book down.

Right from the start I was sucked in which for me is always the sign of a good book. Hated to put it down and couldn't wait to pick it up again! A great plot with a delightful and funny main character. Would be a good movie. Wanting to read more by this author.
