OK so you know that feeling when you've found the perfect booksongbandchild's namewhatever and then shortly after it becomes popular You knowGAH Why can't I just have this one thing to myself Why do I always have to share Now everybody's going to be talking about itusing itslobbering all over it and it's going to get overdoneoverusedoveranalyzed this SUCKS YeahI totally didn't feel that when this book became the Canada Reads book I was in a rut not really enjoying the books that I was reading and about to take a trip that would have me in a car for extended periods so I needed a good book but it had to be one that I could put down if I had to I started looking at Top Ten books of lists and was looking specifically for funny books I came across a book that had won the Stephen Leacock award for humour and googled it thinking that award winners had to have something going for them right So I found this book and the premise sounded OK but the author's story just blew me away So I bought the book devoured it too fast and started recommending it to everyone I met It was my book club choice when I hosted our book club When my husband was in the hospital to get his gall bladder out I left all of the magazines at home and told him that he had to give this book a try he loved it of course It became our city's One Book One Community choice in 2010 and Terry Fallis came to speak to the masses about the book and I went to hear him talk and I loved him even not like a stalker but definitely like a real fan I bought a copy of his second book at the event and have been saving it for the perfect moment savouring the idea that I have it I visit it now and again and say not this time In fact the book had only been released a couple of days prior to the event and a lady in the audience put up her hand and asked him when he was writing the next one because she couldn't put this one down He was genuinely surprised and humbled that there were people there who had not only bought the book already but had loved it that much I think he felt like a rock star that day So he told the lady that he might give the characters a rest and write a different story and she said Hurry up I don't have that much time she was elderly It got a great laugh from the crowd and it moved all of us to think that this woman who is facing her mortality and has to be picking her books with extreme care no time for crap is desperate for his bookAnyhoo all that to say I loved the characters; I loved the story; I loved the humour I laughed out loud several times I have been recommending it for almost 2 years and will continue to do so In factyouyou who's reading thisbuy this book you won't be sorry In fact buy 2 copies and give one to your best friend Let's keep this guy writing
