    Loved it!

    Unique writing voice. Wonderful characterization. Great story. You will love Russell Fink (and new author Mike Snyder).

    Fun and Quirky

    'My Name Is Russell Fink' is about an average, quirky guy who faces unpredicatable changes in his life while negotiating the complexities of relationships. It is a book written from a Christian worldview though it is not blatantly so. I thoroughly enjoyed the read and would compare the writing style to that of Douglas Coupland. The characters are quirky and the story is interesting complete with love, loss, mystery, and a basset hound that gives sage advice. Overall, a light and fun read!

    Ya Gotta Love a Clairvoyant Basset Hound

    I have to admit, it was the clairvoyant basset hound, Sonny, who got my attention and prompted me to read Russell Fink, but it was Russell¿s story that kept me reading. Michael¿s premier novel is a cleverly woven tale of Russell¿s experiences as he investigates a murder that the police won¿t touch, the murder of Sonny. And Russell, is well, Russell ¿ undoubtedly one of the most unlikely heroes that you¿ll ever meet. I promise, you¿ll learn to love him before you get to the end of the book and you¿ll laugh yourself silly all the way there.

    Russell and Sonny

    Poor Russell! Yeah, he's probably a little neurotic, but who wouldn't be? He still lives at home with his mom, a secret drinker, and his dad, an ex-con former faith healer. He works, sometimes, selling office supplies, at least when he's not seeing a doctor to confirm his latest dire self-diagnosis. He's still beating himself up over his sister's death from cancer. His fiancee' refuses to break up with him. And his brother may or may not have been kidnapped. Then there's Sonny. If Russell feeds his basset hound liquor-soaked dog biscuits, Sonny seems to answer questions....until Russell finds him dead under the kitchen table. Who murdered Sonny? Was it the same person who's sending threats to Russell's family? And will Russell ever realize how he really feels about Geri, his friend since college? Snyder's book is chock-full of oddball characters and unexpected plot turns. He's woven issues of faith and second chances throughout. The book was a delightful read. It seemed to end a little hastily but maybe Snyder is setting us up for a second Russell story. That would be fun!
