I adored this book. If there were an annual MMOscars, I'd start a volunteer fan group to promote this title. It made me laugh often and hard. It gave my highlighting finger carpel-tunnel.
The snarky voice of the narration would often digress upon digressions, to the point where I could see how it might annoy some of the readers who gave this book a lower rating. But for me, the flights of fancy the narrator went on was all part of the charm of the character, and hilarious to boot.
If I had one small nit with the book, it's that all the characters were equally, brilliantly snarky. The mom, dad and grandma all had at least modestly unique voices, and even if they were as snarky as the narrator, you could consider it a family trait. But Vince also soon started sounding a lot like the (smart, snarky) narrator, even though he was supposed to be not very bright. However, it would be churlish to complain about that when the dialogue is so freaking entertaining.
It's a gift to be able to make people laugh, so I give T.J. Klune all the props in the world for that. Thank you! I expect there's a sequel planned for Sandy/Darren. Yes, please!
