What a wonderfully written piece of true Americana! Vermont at its quintessential best. Jerry's writing style makes the characters come alive and jump off the page. The most entertaining and humorous book I've read in a while.

Kept thinking of what a terrific motion picture this could be ! Jake's romp thru the village could be a comedy classic.

Hope there's a sequel in the works, would love to hear another Bingo Reilly adventure as written by Mr. Mahoney.

This book is a wonderful, old fashioned romp in rural Vermont. It gives a little insight to some of the older ways and viewpoints, but still is modern and up-to-date. Mr Mahoney crafts a humorous tale of a escaped bull and the affects he has on the townspeople (native and townies alike) as well as his "owner" (can anyone really own a bull?). The scene of Jake galloping (do bulls gallop?) through the town green during a "fair" was hilarious, I could not stop laughing.
I loved this book so much, I gave it as christmas presents to quite a few of my family members- my mother, who grew up on a farm in Vermont in the 50s, loved it.

If you need a good laugh or like reading about rural Vermont, this is the book for you

I liked the book. I know a little about that part of the world (New England). Jake's Run captures today's New England perfectly and makes it fun to read. Prepare to laugh!
