    This book is very similar to a number of Michael Malone books what with the epic quests, the myriad of eccentric characters, and epiphanies at the end of the journey. However, this book is more thoughtful and solidly written than Malone's more whimsical style and plot lines. Still, I can't give this book more than three stars because the author runs out of steam just before the ending and while the finale is appropriate, by the time you get there you just feel like shrugging and closing the book [...]

    This book has so much happening so fast that I need to take periodic breaks from it or I will be overwhelmed.

    This is one my all time favorite books! Its packed full of action, adventure & has quirky southern characters that will make you laugh. I found it to be a fast paced page turner.

    Like a whacked out adult version of Huckleberry Finn. A fun read.
