Editorial Reviews

Karen Brisette
absolutely. lets be honest, this is a book you buy for the cover, initially. but behold: its actually well-written!! this is the most unsympathetic character ive read since dostoevskys the adolescent, but its a hoot, and i didnt want to throw the book even once, which i did with the adolescent. thats a lot of commas to just say - yes - read this book.
Chris Offut
This book is irreverent, vile, gross and absolutely hysterical. Do not read it in bed with your partner trying to sleep next to you… they will be awakened either by you falling off the bed laughing, or by you poking them in the side saying, ‘just listen to this part!’ as you proceed to read them a paragraph that will have both of you rolling around on the floor holding your crotch to keep from peeing yourselves.
Marjorie Frum
An imaginative, colorful, incredibly funny read. The title catches you. The synopsis grips you. And the story itself puts a choke-hold on you like…well, like you’re being eaten by a bear. I found myself laughing out loud over and over. From start to finish, I devoured every word.

A quick and easy read. Written in the first person, the narrator reveals himself to have an interesting outlook in his life. Other characters are revealed through his selfish lens to make a unique reading experience.

(Maybe 2.5 stars) I don't really know what to say about this book. I didn't not like it, but I don't think I liked it either. It was categorized as a Tragic Comedy. I didn't really find it funny, other than one part where Marv was casting people to play the movie roles of the people in his life. I didn't think that anything that happened to Marv was tragic either. I do believe that the only reason I even finished the book was to find out if the bear finally ate Marv. It's not spoiling the ending for those who want to read it, but I was pleasantly surprised with the last chapter.

Sorry, but what book was the editorial comments referring to? I expected this hilarious,witty book. Instead I got a ho-hum,"when is this gonna end" story. Sorry, did not live up to the hype.
