    A waste of money...not anywhere even in the same universe as Iro

    A waste of money...not anywhere even in the same universe as Iron House, Last Child, and Down River which were some of the best I've ever read.

    Very different style and plot from the other John hart novels I'

    Very different style and plot from the other John hart novels I've read. I actually thought it might be a different John Hart.
    It is written from the perspective of an 18 year old boy and his friends, and I have to say he captured the tone of that age very well. 
    So I enjoyed the book. And I'd rate it 4 stars. BUT........

    I bought the nook version. And I am pretty certain that NO ONE proofread the book. There are so many mis-spelled words, that you have to process the sentences to figure out what the heck the author MEANT to write. It was extremely frustrating. It may sound like a small thing, and I'm overly critical. But all the mis-spellings were actually other words, like the auto-correct on your phone. There were words missing as well, so you had to deconsruct the sentence to understand it. No way can you "lose yourself" in the book if you read the Nook version. It isn't the first time I've found error, but certainly the quantity of mistakes is unparalleled. Even worse was the punctuation, or should I say, the lack of punctuation. The stream of consciousness of the main character is fun, but there are no more than 12 commas in the entire 162 pages. You sometimes have to read a sentence 3 times to understand what the author was trying to say.

    Very Entertaining

    Tom Brown, the main character in 'Offer It Up' comes alive on these pages. We all knew someone like him in high school and maybe even some of us were like him. John Hart has created one interesting character after another in this highly entertaining and funny novel. May be the best coming of age novel since 'Catcher In The Rye' with an ending that causes pause and some thinking by the reader. The observations Tom Brown has about life in general and how he and his friends are coping with life after high school ring so true that you find it hard to believe that this is a work of fiction. This reader hopes that in the not too far distant future there will be a sequel, and once you read this novel you will know why.

    very funny entertaining coming of age story

    Laugh out loud funny coming of age story. Author captures the aimlessness and confusion of life as a teenager. Characters are quite believable and their observations of what is going on around them will not only make you laugh, but ring so true they will make you think. I found myself returning to re-read portions as the humor comes very naturally and not forced.

    Crap

    Written and edited by someone high on something. Should offer refund. Embarrassing for author, proof reader and editor. There were some good bones there to expand on, but this was a train wreck of proportionate dimensions! Rip off
