The most scathingly funny book I've read in over a year.

Imagine walking down the streets of New York and trying to read a book at the same time. That was a feat I accomplished as I couldn't put this book aside and focus on my safety. Imagine laughing out loud on the subway and not caring what anyone thought as the book you're reading was too good to put down and couldn't wait until you got home. I think I finished Riches in less then two days and if a sequel is in the works I shall certainly jump for it. The Floods have to be the worst family imaginable. What makes them and the novel so perfect is that all the wounds are NOT healed. Not a book to be enjoyed for the whole family and I for one am grateful for it!

    Is this My Family?

    Although set in Ireland with a difficult to understand, is it really english? dialogue the story and characters suck you in! We can all see how the characters and their motivations rule their actions and parallel people in our lives. What makes this such a fun and insightful read is the outlandish steps the characters go through for greed, lust, and of course money. You will laugh out loud and exclaim when they just go too far- poor grandma! Seriously if you want something unique and completely absorbing, read this book!
