This is great book with a funny story. The story has a perfect flow and original content. It is certainly a nice reading for all generations.

this book is being (unofficially) translated to Russian (but slow enough to get only the first chapter done in a couple of months)

nice and funny! There is something about this story that reminds me of Nick Hornby's books. I am looking forward to reading another David's book... when??? I hope soon :)

ps: however, I didn't like the title

I enjoyed reading this up to a point. It's really a love story trying to find its way. The title is so way off base, it isn't even appropriate. Still, it was an OK read.

I personally loved it and found it funny, charming and interesting. I hope that people will read the book despite what "piezoman" has to say.

While the book is easy to read, it is far from good. I would equate the piece as "descriptive writing gone wrong." The number of analogies used to describe showering was distracting within the first hour of reading. Too much emphasis was placed on scenes designed to illustrate the 'cool' factor of our main character, while there were glaring absences of the effects of one event on another, making every 'incredible' occurence that much more 'UNcredible'.

This story may be based on actual events… (more)

Good, fun, read. Easy to understand for English as a second language. (I'm Portuguese) The end of the story let me a bit disappointed but overall I enjoyed the book. (I'm 32 years old)

Awesome book. Can't say enough good about it. If David Bowick write another I will be first in line to buy and read it!

Fun read...thanks for such a pleasant (yeah, slightly addictive) first book-read experience on the iPad that I had to, but didn't want to, buy. [For real...] Camera-panning-out-the-window / PG13 comment still bugs me as a real clunker (as in, I would edit it and repost the manuscript; that bad) otherwise I found the approach and humor infectious.

An ending-gambit to consider for your next: introduce an incident as equally fantastic as the one that opened this. End with an ellipsis...

I don't consider myself a love triangle (or quadrangle) type reader, but this is not your usual idea of the situation. A wonderfully clever beginning leads into a witty and ingenious novel that I had to compulsively read through until the very mature and realistic ending. A thoughtful and exciting book that is wholly believable in its lush detail. It truly seems that it could happen to anybody, but only Mr. Bowick could write it this good. I hope to read more from you, David. Bravo!

Loved this book!! It was all too entertaining. It took me a second to figure out what was happening, but once the book took off I couldn't stop reading! I finished it in a day!! I recommend it to all!
