This book had me hooked from beginning to end, with many good laughs in between. The strong character development, the laid-back vibe and the ever-present humor are what took this story and made it magnificent. Seeing the world through Lucas’s ludicrous and charismatic child-like lenses was quite amusing. He’s a bad role model — I even grew a little bit frustrated by his lack of morals and deceitful nature. However, these shortcomings added a realistic effect to his personality without making me feel too uncomfortable. In the end, it feels impossible not to root for him, flaws and all.
I thoroughly enjoyed the uniqueness of Tom Starita’s satirical novel and will certainly read it again. I definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for a light and offbeat comedy.
I give this book a 5 out of 5 feather rating!
