    Disappointing

    I was very disappointed with this book. It dragged to the end. I actually forced myself to finish it just in case there was a big finish...there wasn't. I found no humor and the young man in this story does nothing but drink rum and coke after rum and coke. I do not reccomend this to anyone it is a waste of your money and/or your time.

    Lousy novel

    This book is a waste of time. The author clearly wanted to write a memoir without taking the inherent risks of the genre--telling his own story by thinly disguising it as fiction. What results is a watered-down, dull book full of stereotypes and unbelievable coincidences. Mr. Groh seems too concerned about his own reputation--particularly with the people he tries to satirize--to concern himself with basic good writing. The worst kind of first novel.

    Don't bother

    I saw this book and thought it would be a great summer read. Now that I am living in New England I thought it would spice up my time laying in the sun. It was slow in the beginning and hardly picked up throughout the book which was disappointing. If you are looking for a light book to pass the time don't bother with this one.
