Damn good story, just a pleasure to read and so well written.
I was worried that after reading his first 2 books, he couldn t keep me entertained without getting formulaic and predictable But Fallis has done it again, and written another laugh out loud story, with The same snappy humour as his first 2 books, but completely different characters I could hardly put it down I was eager to find out what happens next in this quintessentially Canadian, cheer for the underdog, we ll show those arrogant Americans tale, and loving each one liner giggle.
Absolutely improbable, blatantly pro Canadian with stereotypical American bullies and bad guys, and a heroine so outrageously accomplished that you continually shake your head in disbelief BUT having said all that, I had a ball reading it Silly but fun.
Funny clever Enjoyed in entirety.
