Anyone who as done repeat vacations to the Big Mouse in Fl should get one heck of kick out of the novel. Dave Conifer gave voice to many of my unspoken thoughts while watching people cut lines, use strollers as weapons, gave a name to "wormers" and "scouts" The addition story line about chasing down a fraud maynot have been necessary, but I thought it gave the story more places to go than simply waiting in line at the Parks. I too know a "Vinnie" in RL and I hate to say it but I've got alot of "Nancy" in me- I'm the Disney planner of the group.

I laughed so hard at some parts that my hubby put down his book and read my Kindle cause he had to know what I found so amusing.

Download the sample, if you like that chapter - you'll love the rest of the book!

The initial premise holds promise, but Mr. Conifer looses focus (as other reviewers have noted) and needs an editor. Or a friend with a red pencil. I think a run through the book with an editorial eye could solve many of the problems: wandering plot, typos, grammar oopsies, and random characters popping in for no good reason.

However. The book would still have excessive ableism, sexism, and even racism in the guise of humor throughout. At no point in the entire book is Mr. Conifer kind to people who need mobility devices, often letting his narrator play the role of "disability police" when describing anyone and everyone using any assistive device. An equal opportunity "satirist", Mr. Conifer attempts gay jokes, class jokes (poor people sure are funny!), and race jokes ("I'm not a racist but..."). Unfortunately, his attempts at humor fall flat and land in the "this just stinks" category.

Now that the book costs $0.99 to read, I can't in good faith recommend it. If you need race jokes and disability bashing, try real life instead. (Then again, when it was free, I also couldn't recommend it. Price does not improve this book.)

This book starts out confusing, but it only takes a few minutes to understand the authors varoius name plays. He is pretty spot on in describing some of the aspects of a trip to Disney World. It started great with alot of attention to detail and was laugh out loud funny. My favorite is the "flapper (the flying elephant) or die" itinerary that he gets drug into, thats one our family does every year. Its also fun to imagine yourself dealing with all those line cutters the way Nancy does. Oh, how satisfying that would be!
I did feel like he lost interest in the book about half way through writing it though. By the time he got around to recounting his day at Animal Kingdom, I had a hard time figuring out what attraction he was discussing and the book just wasnt as entertaining. There was less attention to detail in that whole park day then in just getting to the first ride at Magic Kingdom.
The side story line was a little out there, but it did its job of keeping a purpose to the book rather then just recount of what attractions there are in each park.
Overall, it started GREAT, puttered out toward the end, but is a must read (or at least the first few chapters are) for any avid Disney fan and is well worth the download, especially for free.

In a Snodgrass vacation, we follow two families as they attempt to make it through that magical amusement park we all know and love. I thought this book was a complete riot. I think part of that is due to the fact that I can identify with the plight through an amusement park, but my experience wasn't nearly as funny and riddled with on liners and funny characters. The book is told from the point of view of one of the fathers on the trip - Dave. I thought Vinnie's one-liners were hysterical. I had to bookmark some of them! Vinnie was probably my favorite character. Nancy was a really funny character - I need her to plan my next vacation! I thought the storyline was funny, but it also went somewhere as Dave and Vinnie were on a mission to prove a case of fraud. I liked this because a story about only an amusement park could possibly get boring. Didn't happen at Snodgrass though - Dave and Vinnie were anything bu boring! I am eagerly looking forward to a sequel.

I only read half of the book, then went over toward the end to mainly see if the so called injured man was faking his injury or not. The book dragged on and on and really did not have much of a plot. Thank goodness it was a free Kindle "read" so I did not waste any money, only my time.

This book would have been a lot better if the author didn't go into so much detail about everything. And I do mean everything. Perhaps if he cut a third of the book out it would be better. Can't really tell anyone to buy this book. Sorry.

I bought this after reading just one paragraph of the excerpt. We love Disney and Dave hit a vacation to the Mouse spot on. Stayed up till 2 in the morning reading until my eyes went blurry and picked up where I left off the second I woke up. Though I am a bit more flexible, I am Nancy. LOL

Why would anyone want to read about such dreadful people? The writing did not make up for lack of plot, the plot did not make up for shallow charaters, and the charaters did not make up for such boring writing. Not funny, not interesting, misses the mark.
