This was such an entertaining book, a roller coaster ride of emotions. The characters really set the pace. The writer takes the time to understand what they are all about and even rates each mover as he see them. A realistic book on the trials and tribulations of being a mover in LA, not only funny but heart warming. Don't miss out on a very special book.

Los Angeles, often called the City of Angels, is also called La-la Land -- and for good reason. It has long been a magnet for those seeking fame and fortune, or just a chance for a new start amidst palm trees and sunshine. Thus, anyone spending a substantial amount of time in Los Angeles soon becomes aware of a unique, often eccentric, primary culture, and (perhaps) also some rather strange sub-cultures. Artie Q, an aspiring musician, found himself in one of these sub-cultures when he became a moving man in order to pay the rent. Being more astutely observant than most, as well as possessing a solid work ethic, Artie Q figured if he was going to do the job, he might as well do it right. Not all his co-workers were of the same mind. In fact, many of them were in their own personal la-la lands. Artie’s memoir of this time in his life is devilishly funny, but also thoughtful, and thought provoking, as he chronicles these characters and his interactions with them. I highly recommend this book for the great writing, the hilarity, the chance to get to know Artie Q, and the opportunity to see a side of Los Angeles you may never before have noticed. You’ll have a rollicking good time -- and will never look at movers the same way again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
