    A Masterful Dark Comedy

    This is the first book I have ever read by Kinky Friedman. Kinky's writes this book in a very loose, almost stream of consciousness, manner. This, along with the solitary and soul searching narrator, gave rise to an enthralling spectrum of emotions ranging from light hearted joy to unfathomable sadness. 'Kill Two Birds & Get Stoned' is a great read that I thoroughly enjoyed, as have all of my friends.

    Stepping Off the Kinky Track

    A departure from the usual Kinky-as-dick 'pun intended' adventures, this book always made me reluctant to put it down and happy to return to it. A few lessons are tucked into it, tongue in cheek, along with bathroom humor and insights into the writing life. Being a writer, I leave it to others to decide which is more upsetting. All in all, this book is great fun, off the usual Kinky track.

    Laughs

    I spent a lot of time laughing my butt off at the antics in this book. I can see where some people could be offended by parts, however those people should do themselves a favor and not read any of Kinky's books. If you enjoy wackiness, you will love this.

    Kinky, what were you thinky?

    After you've invested valuable time reading a book, do you sometimes wish you could take it back and get a refund, based solely on the fact that although it has a spine and cover and pages it shouldn't have ever been classified as a 'book'. Too harsh? Sorry.

    Go Back To Doing What You Do Best, Kinkster!!

    My God!! This is AWFUL!!! I am a huge fan of his series that features himself as an amateur private detective. They are warm, funny, insightful, and witty little gems that have loveable misfits pursueing lovely little adventures. This attempt at a real novel lacks any trace of humor or likeable characters. It reads more like a poorly written draft than a finished work. Nothing at all rings true nor does one give a damn about any of the characters. My fervant wish for them was total carnage eliminating both them and the story 25 pages into it. Kinster please don't try to be something that you are not. Be satisfied that you have a core of fans that dearly love the Kinkster, Ratso, Rambam, et al!!

    High Anticipation Leads to Big Disappointment

    I have always found Kinky Friedman's books irresistible even though many times his characters' dialogue was too crude to be enjoyable. I was really looking forward to a different cast of characters in a story by Kinky and I started reading as soon as I got this one home. My thoughts after the first twenty pages were 'No way Kinky Freidman wrote this!' and 'Kinky is not this boring!' I had to stop in middle of the book and read another book because I could not take the boredom. I forced myself to resume reading the book but every time I picked it up it was a chore. I kept thinking that if Kinky Freidman's name was on the book, there must be something worthwile to read there. I finally got to the end and the ending was horrible!! I think this book is a huge waste of paper. I don't know how many female readers Kinky has. Is this book something that only men will get? I'll stick to the regular mystery series if Kinky continues it; otherwise Kinky may have lost a faithful reader.
