Overview

Three twentysomething guys who transitioned from collegiate underachieving to corporate bottom feeding sketch out a plan to make a grab for some dignity. They will rob the publishing house that employs their only stable member and insults him on a daily basis. Being the bright, perceptive fellows they are, they all quickly realize it isn't about the money. For Phil "Dub" Dublen, it's a pissed off statement against a dull, meaningless job. For self-styled poet Trim, it's a chance to actually be as outrageous and ...

Overview

Three twentysomething guys who transitioned from collegiate underachieving to corporate bottom feeding sketch out a plan to make a grab for some dignity. They will rob the publishing house that employs their only stable member and insults him on a daily basis. Being the bright, perceptive fellows they are, they all quickly realize it isn't about the money. For Phil "Dub" Dublen, it's a pissed off statement against a dull, meaningless job. For self-styled poet Trim, it's a chance to actually be as outrageous and anarchic as he needs to be. For Trim's roommate Dan, it seems to be something he does for the same reason he does everything: to vent some anger, having nothing to do. By the time their master plan is all said and done, nothing has been solved, nothing is better, and nothing, really, has changed. And in the slightly fractured wisdom of the larcenous trio, this surpises none of them.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Jeff Somers claims a severe trauma as a child left him overtaken with a compulsion to write. Not yetthirty, he's pounded out more than 250 short stories and several novels.

    First chapter of Life Drops! PREVIEW

    I look out into the vast sky, then down. That was a mistake. I just can't help staring at how far away the ground is. "You can do it, Riverkit!" my friends Snakekit, Featherkit and Sunkit cheer. "Just jump!" Easy for them to say. Don't look down, don't look down. Breathe in, breathe out. I look down at Snakekit, his black fur glistening in the sunlight, green eyes warm and encouraging. "You can do it, Riverkit!" he cheers. I take a deep breath in, then jump, my body plummeting towards the ground.
    *end of preview* The full version is coming soon!

    Funny and smart

    I enjoyed this book. The story is believable - especially if you are (or can remember being, like me) a frustrated twenty-something discovering that life isn't what all those TV shows told you it was. The dialogue is snappy and quite funny in parts. I especially loved the character of Trim! He was consistently warped and funny. I think Jeff Somers is my new hero. I've recommended this book to everyone I know.

    This book is damn good.

    I got a galley copy of this book through a friend. Mr. Somers has a sharp wit and an incisive understanding of his generation, and he wraps them inside a fun story filled with interesting characters and unexpected twists. In the final analysis, there's an unexpected depth to the story amidst the jokes. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a good story.
