Much of the richness of this book lies in its jocular conversational bantering and some extremely witty and clever writing. --Book Pleasures, March 4, 2010
Extremely witty and clever writing that contains keen insights into human nature. --California Chronicle
The antics in this book will leave the reader laughing. Graham Parke is a genius. --Readers Favorite
A quick and unputdownable read that flies in the face of reason, and smashes against the wall of detective novels. It's a Coens Brothers' film formatted in book form. --Book Review
A very funny book; a veritable page turner of nonstop laughs. Buy a copy and find out for yourself! --Reader Views

P.S. I feel better now….I purchased his 2nd Gomez thriller for 99cents….at these price increases, 99% of nothing….it is likely worth much more than the the sum of its parts as you will soon find out. Enjoy. See you at the CULT MEETINGS.
Gomez is a hilarious main character. Part dreamer, part fool, part everyman, you find yourself laughing at him and with him at the same time. Mostly you find yourself cheering for him.
If you like quirky characters and off beat stories that follow the typical patterns, you will enjoy this book. The writing is very good. There's an understated mania in Gomez's blogs that comes through so well. It's so funny! You are reading supposed computer postings, about which everyone complains you can't tell the emotional context of the author. Mr. Parke has done an excellent job of conveying the emotional context of Gomez in each of his computer blogs. Kudos to you sir! I wonder why the rest of us miss it in real life?
Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and feel that it has a wide appeal. So if you're up for something a little off beat, a little outside the everyday, that will make you laugh a bit and smile some give this book a try. If you are tired of reading the same old story with different character names and you want to stretch your imagination a bit pick up a copy of this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Graham Parke has a style that is so fresh and unique that he left me craving more.
Poor, lovable Gomez is on a fast track to nowhere when he joins a drug trial and begins writing a daily blog as part of the requirements of the trial.
What follows is a delightful account of daily life in the antique shop left to Gomez by his deceased parents, nighttime adventures with the downstairs neighbor and a record of Gomez's growing attraction to the doctor running the drug trial.
To tell you any more would ruin your reading experience. Take it from me, this is a story you don't want to miss. In the end, I found myself wishing that I could meet a person as delightfully off center as our dear Gomez is. Read No Hope For Gomez, by Graham Parke, and see if you don't find yourself wishing the same thing. Everybody want's a friend like Gomez!
