Overview

A fun spoof of Disney World and the people who love it...

Dave Jevik wasn't too happy to hear that his wife had scheduled a family vacation to Snodgrass World Resort with the Zandanels. Loudmouth Vinnie is hard to put up with for an hour, let alone a week. But when Vinnie spots wheelchair-bound George Van Morrison in first class on the flight to Florida, the dreaded trip takes on a sense of purpose. Van Morrison claims he was injured at a restaurant owned by Dave's friend back home and the lawsuit has already been filed.

Dave and Vinnie just know he's faking it and they have a week at Snodgrass World to save the restaurant by proving it. They'll have to dodge fleets of wheel chairs and scooters long enough to expose him while taking in park attractions like 'Brutal Yet Fun and Lovable Buccaneers' and 'Showcase of Random Allied Countries.'

Vinnie's sharp-elbowed wife is indispensable as she leads the way past line-cutters, other people's obnoxious children and the maniac driving the scooter with the on-board colostomy bag. When they befriend a crotchety bartender back at the hotel Dave and Vinnie unexpectedly tap an inside source that just might help them get their man.

Anybody who's ever taken a trip to Orlando will recognize most of what they read about in Snodgrass Vacation, a politically incorrect satire of theme park life.

    So much fun!

    This is definitely a book you will want on your e-reader when you want something really fun to read. The wackiness of it all had me cracking up from beginning to end.

    Easy, fun read

    I read this in 2 days. The characters are likeable and he captures the essence of "Disney"well. I laughed out loud at many parts. It will probably be vacation or summer reading for me. Now I want to plan a Disney vacation.

    Witty and refreshing sense of humor. I loved it.

    After returning from my vacation in California, this author had me laughing out loud, surpisingly throughout the whole book. I completely identified with his descriptions of vacationers lined up to go onto various amusement park rides. I even read some portions out loud to my spouse who found it quite entertaining. The author puts on paper the sarcasm that many would secretly think but never dare to say outloud.

    The story line wasn't deep by any means, but the antics were so "down to earth," you can't help but enjoy the light-hearted descriptions as the story unfolds.

    Wait! I think I've Met These People

    Snodgrass Vacation is a very visual book with well-crafted characters. I swear, I think I've met some of them in real life. I enjoyed all the different references to Disney, and it really made me think perhaps my own vacations weren't nearly so crazy as I once believed. The added story about trying to catch a scam artist kept the story fresh and intriguing. I particularly liked the tunnel part. If you enjoy off-the-wall situations, this book is definitely for you.

    SnodGrass Vacation - delightful summertime read

    Snodgrass Vacation is a quick delightful read. Dave Conifer captures the theme park visitor mentality to a tee. The characters are lovable (every family has an Uncle Vinnie) and their antics make for a light fun-filled journey. Highly recommend this author so check out his other books also.
