It is difficult to NOT think of Stewie from the Family Guy TV series when reading the misadventures of Oliver. Although that doesn't detract from the uniqueness of the character, parallels will inevitably be drawn thanks to the characters obsessive hate/need his acceptance relationship with his father.

This is a fun read and I made it through in one sitting. There are many chuckle worthy moments that help endear the reader to the supporting cast. Part of the charm of the story is in not knowing if this is the Oliver's actual reality, or his childish imagination gone awry.

Oliver is your classic pseudo-villain in the making.

    Cover COMPLETELY misleading! Not for 10 year old!

    The adorable cover of this book is completely misleading! It's got a 10 year old on the front cover, but this book cannot be understood by a 10 or 11 year old unless read to by a parent. I don't mind that the main character is rude and says inappropriate stuff...boys like to read that so as a mom I'm completely okay with it. It's that it's a "fantasy" book that's set in the real world. If it was about dragons or vampires, you know you have to suspend belief. But this book may or may not be a fantasy. It's about Oliver, who says he's a fat loser at school who gets made fun of by others but in reality he's a billionaire genius who has a football sized field space specially made for him under his house where he can conduct his business...and his parents don't know about it or the fact that he's a billionaire. So at first you think he's got a great fantasy life going on to cover up for having no friends and being an outcast. But then as an adult and you read on and on and this "fantasy life" isn't going away you realize that the boy might be actually telling the truth. But my 10 1/2 year old is confused and says, "Oliver keeps lying..." and the book tries to be witty and funny and make jokes and innuendos that children the age of 10 or 11 cannot possibly understand. I think all the reviews on here are from adults. Just try giving this to a kid under the age of 12 or even 13, and they're completely confused and baffled. It's got way too many words on each page that an 11 year old doesn't know like "assailant, invariably, unmolested, carcass" and that's only on pages 20 and 21 . I love challenging books and words, but there are way too many not to be running to the dictionary every two pages. I've been reading this to my son out loud, and have to explain each page because he's confused. Does a 10 year old really know what a master's thesis is? (page 75) No. Why the author thinks that they do is strange to me. I think adult fans of Jon Stewart would really like this book. The cover bothers me, because it makes 10 year olds and younger want to pick it up. Great cover and great title...for a kids book. But this isn't a kids book. I never write reviews, but I really felt like the reality has to be stated.
