Book Description (from Amazon.com)
With this newest collection of irreverent short stories Manion once again asks the reader to get off the bench and get into the game as he dishes out laughs, offense and even a few poignant moments. There is no point to be made here. Only the hope that somewhere amidst all the run-on sentences, unnecessary profanity and poor grammar, readers will come away with some unique thoughts of their own. Perfect reading for artists, commuters and people who spend an inordinate amount of time on the toilet. Some writers pander to their audience and write whatever it is they think will sell. Others are bold enough to say what needs to be said. Then there is Lance Manion. Writing what others won’t simply because there was no need for it to have been written in the first place. This is his fourth collection of short stories and frankly we’re just as surprised as anyone that he is continuing to write them. But here it is. It helps if you have a good imagination. That’s not to imply that we think if you don’t enjoy it then you don’t have a good imagination. It’s certainly not a litmus test for creativity. All we’re saying is that it doesn’t hurt if you’re a little off. If you’re looking for us to try and talk you into downloading a free book than I think you’ve clearly overestimated our interest in your reading it.
But having said that, if you’ve already invested this much time in reading the description what’s the worst that could happen if you gave it a shot? Exactly.
You’ve been warned.
Homo-Saywhaticus was hilarious. It was a bunch of short stories, more like blog posts. It jumped from one topic to another and in no specific order. Sure there was some “posts” that I was put off about and some that were vulgar, but it didn’t stop me from reading the rest. It was a very quick read and the type of book that you could put down and come back to later or even a few days later and not worry about forgetting what you had read. Overall, a quick and funny read.
