This book was, simply put, "One H... of a ride".
As a former Harley rider myself, having spent some time in the saddle, shall we say, warming my posterior, I could identify with the parts relating to the various riders' anatomical miseries from the long ride to no matter where. The one comment by a rider complaining about a certain portion of his anatomy "falling asleep" during the long ride was laugh out loud funny.
I don't re-tell story lines in my reviews, but the plot to steal motorcycles was both outlandish and yet credible by the way it was argued by chief protagonist Randy. That Lee, the co-protagonist, went "along for the ride", (no pun intended), albeit initially reluctantly, but then agreeing to the plan, I frankly found believable.
But until you realize that beneath it all Randy's frame of reference is that of a bona fide sociopath what idea wouldn't make sense until you finally realize his motivation?
What I like in a book are two things: first, it must hold my attention from start to finish, and second, if I need to put the book down and come back to it later, I don't want to re-read pages to remember where I left off.
This book succeeded wonderfully as to point one and failed miserably on point two. "Stealing Sturgis" held my attention throughout so well that I could not put it down for any reason until I had finished it.
But then, when it all boils out, isn't that what we really want in a good read!
Kind of like Sturgis itself (and we RODE our bikes there!).
Nothing to take seriously, just jump on and go for a ride!
Fast, entertaining read.
