The perfect summer read. BUDDING PROSPECTS is my favorite book. &, yes, I have read more than one. For those who delight in excellent dark humor, this book is a must. I've given away countless copies to my friends. Join Felix & associates as Boyle unravels his perfect plot about life in a Cannabis Summer Camp. Be prepared for a magnificent conclusion but don't skip to the end, because you'd miss a wondrous, literary joyride.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A hilarious, unforgettable, romp-n-stomp good time, BUDDING PROSPECTS delivers more to its audience than it ever will to the three would-be botanists who fill its pages. With a menagerie of idiosyncratic characters, a wellspring of unforeseeable (though never unbelievable) plot twists, and verbose prose that melts amiably on the brain, Boyle is everything a modern literary author should be. Call it a sign of hope that TC has such a devoted following-- nonetheless more readers should try him. If shallow, point-and-shoot bestsellers (John Sanford, Sue Grafton, James Patterson, etc., etc., etc.) are everything that's wrong with modern bookbuyers, TC Boyle and his audience dare to represent something more significant--unique, intelligent, witty, approachable, unforgettable storytelling.Was this review helpful?

This book is a fast read. It is entertaining as well as educational. I read this while smoking some great green stuff. I suggest this as it made the book laugh out loud funny.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
