Really liked the adventure book. One adventure after another with the main character and those around him. The adventures were varied. Also caught some subtle humor that I liked. And some not so subtle. I liked the twists and turns of the different adventures and even some of the character's names. Also enjoyed the ending.
I enjoyed reading about Michael's adventures [and misadventures] because they involved such unique people and situations. There was a lot of humor throughout, too!
