It is written beautifully, I heard Hanks voice throughout the book, like he himself was narrating the book to me.
All tough I didn't have high expectations for this book, they were still met and even had me surprised.
Great story, great book, gotta love Hank
I bought paperback and quality was really nice. Normal book.
I wanted to love this book because I love the show. While it should scream Hank Moody, it merely reverberates and imitates. Of course I know Hank Moody is a fictional character, but the book should at least have his attitude within the lines. Not some caricature of it. The characters was all wrong, the storyline outlandish. I didn't expect anything monumental, but I expected something more--something that would pop out and pull me in. I had to force myself to finish this book.
I don't know how to review a book without spilling out the spoiler alerts--you should really read this book yourself if you're a fan of the show because it'll tide you over during the hiatus--but the one thing that really bothered me was the main character's relationship with the father. While it's rocky at best, it didn't stay true to what we were build to expect (the show touches on the subject of fathers in Hank's novels). Of course the book is about growing up, moving on and figuring life out no matter what. I just didn't expect a story about a semi-regular guy who has a messed up relationship with a girl who stabbed him one drug-filled night, has a sisterly relationship with another girl, witnesses his parents' downfall, becomes a drug dealer, falls in love with a model who's dating some schmuck in a band, befriends a photographer and gets into a wild adventure one weekend in Korea.
The book is littered with subplots that seem to be thrown in for color, but come out bland. I don't know what the ghost writer was thinking when he wrote the story, of if he was being guided down by the producers of the show, but the book just didn't bode well for me. I'm not saying it was bad--like, I said, any fan of the show should read it--I'm just saying that it's not living up to its expectations. Don't even get me started on how it could be adapted into the fictional film A Crazy Thing Called Love. I'm still puzzled by that.
