I thought this was a wildly funny and at the same time a very serious novel that had great insights into both small-town America and the world at large.

This book begins with a great premise but the author fails to develop the plot and ruins what could have been a great novel. The reader is left with a disappointing ending. Perhaps a drug using reader may get more out of this than I did. The author had some good observations & there were a few humorous parts but overall this was not a great piece of literature. Save your money for a better book than this!

I thought the book was funny. I am an old hippie, and proud of it. Furthermore, I live in a town in Iowa that is an old hippie hangout. I could identify with the book from my home and telling my own kids about life in the '60s and '70s. The main character, John, missing out on the hippie generation is trying to reconcile his late grandmother's hippie lifestyle while falling in love with a hippie. John does a lot of flash back to his recent yuppie lifestyle, college days, and trappings he lived in. In the end I think he has become a hippie by association. I hope the author gives a second look at Boonville. I was left wondering about John and Sarah

I am mystified by the positive reviews for this book. It reads like the work of a high school student, determined to get back at the small town stuck in his craw. According to the jacket, the author is in his 30's; so why is he still so obsessed with incompetent parents and half-wit bullies? 'Boonville' is badly written and unfunny

Boonville is a hilarious story with great writing and an ending that you'll never forget. I laughed out loud. Cutting edge literature.

I saw the blurbs by Carl Hiaasen, Norman Mailer, Naomi Wolf, Jonathan Lethem and Martin Cruz Smith, and read the book, surprised that what they all said was true: this is a great first novel. For anyone who likes literature, a good laugh, or has lived a day in California.
