"A brilliant example of why Shawn Spencer needs to grow up, learn some responsibility, and leave our baby alone."―Bill and Winnie Guster
About the Author
Burton "Gus" Guster has been party to the impulsive adventures of his best friend since they were kids, which is why he's convinced himself that the straight and narrow -- a job as a pharmaceutical sales rep, 401(k) and a regular paycheck is right where he belongs. Still, the idea of being a private investigator intrigues him, and while he is completely horrified by Shawn's behavior most of the time, he knows that the excitement and adventure of their new enterprise might just make it all worth it.

Seriously though, as a diehard fan of the TV show, this book is all sorts of legit. You will laugh, maybe even until you cry.
I read the whole thing in the voice of the characters. It reads exactly as you imagine it would. It has made me laugh out loud numerous times and will continue to do so.
|Length: 1:13 Mins|
Second, this is pretty quality writing. I know there are Psych novels out there that are underwhelming, but whoever wrote this must be involved with the show or is intimately familiar with it. I love that the book never 'breaks character'. The whole time you are made to assume that it is written by Shawn and Gus. Even the copyright says Shawn Spencer.
I've only made it through a few chapters, but this is some light reading. I'm sure you could barrel your way through if you insisted, but I like going through the chapters at my own leisure. This isn't prose fiction, so it's not exactly a page-turner.
Overall, you're going to have to be a fan of the show to read this. Having the characters' voices in your head as you read is essential. Even better, though, is that it's actual quite metafictional. It's a book that knows it's a book.
What a wonderful experiment by whoever was behind this and I hope we get more.
My only gripe is that it's in black and white, especially when compared to the Parks and Recreation book which offered the same amount of content at the same price AND it's in color. Anyway, I'm having a blast.
