How does he do it? By following the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) 12 Step Guide, of course.
Somehow this all makes perfect sense in the madcap mind of Johnny Tee. The result is a roller coaster ride of hilarious antics.
Although truly an original concept, if I could compare this book to another of my other favorite series it would be the “My Man Jeeves” stories by P.G. Wodehouse. Both authors utilize laugh-out-loud, off the wall humor and preposterously hilarious situations.
Overall, an exhilarating book that is impossible to put down.
I also grew to like Johnny's character a lot. He is simple and not the brightest but he also came across as sincere. He was crude and insulting and a bit selfish, but in the end, he came through for his friends. As I was reading, I could almost picture a TV episode taking place in somewhere like New Jersey. In my mind they had Jersey accents and were dealing with mobsters instead of just gangsters. I love it when I can see the story in my mind. That's how I knew I was hooked. I had a lot of fun with this book.
All in all, I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick, yet fun and entertaining, read.
It's about the goofy and slightly dark misadventures of a gigantic idiot, and it has more than a few parts that made me laugh out loud (which was probably a little awkward for the guy sitting next to me).
Anyway, it's only $0.99 on Kindle, and if you don't get a buck's worth of entertainment out of it, well then damn you are one cheap person. Personally, I went for the paper copy (if I'm going to be forced to read, I'd better have some physical proof) you that was a great deal as well.
Volume 2 is already out, so I've ordered that. Will post a review once it arrives.
Nick Tory lets this lunkhead live and actually be the hero. He gives us the hilarious insight into what it would be like to be that idiot. He also gives that idiot a well rounded cast of characters. Johnny Tee is written so we, the reader, now know how the dense people of the world actually think and somehow survive.
We get to complete the joke based on what Johnny thinks. An example from Johnny 12 Steps: "You meet a lot of crazies riding a bus across the country. That's what they always say, but I never felt that way. I generally just passed the time talking to the quietest people about random thoughts that entered my head and going off on a lot of tangents." Thank you Nick, so that's how these dense idiots think.
