I enjoyed reading this GK book about Guy Noir and his adventures with a mircle weight loss cure. All of my favorite people were in the story one way or another and I enjoyed reading that Guy was winning for once.

I read the whole, actual book (vs just a sample) and found it to be absolutely hilarious! Perhaps you have to be of a certain age to get all his play on words humor, but his use of alliteration through the book is amazing; as is the erudite twist on what would otherwise simply be bawdy humor. If you are a Garrison Keillor fan, then I Highly suggest this book. I'm sure the audio version would be fun, too, but really ,some of the humor has to be read! Because, honestly, then you can just put the book down for a minute when something just jolts your funny bone so much you can't help but laugh hysterically. That happened to me and I wish the same for you! ;-)

The sample is 16 pages, one of which allows us to read half of the first sentence of the book. Not much of a sample if you ask me.

For those who are fans of Garrison Keilor and Prairie Home companion, the announcement that this is their last year is a disappointment. But for those who love the characters that Garrison created, we can only hope that he keeps writing novels like this. The character of Guy Noir harkens back to the Pre-WWII detective friction of Sam Spade and THh Continental Op, but in a humorous vein. There are dames and villains and impossible plots with the Keillor touch. We will miss the Radio show, But Guy will live on.
