This was a great read! I picked it up and didn't stop until the end, which for a mom during SUMMER BREAK (i.e.-kid running around begging for attention) I have to say was a pretty solid feat! The cover is what really got me, which I try not to allow a pretty cover to sway me, but it just sums up the book so very well. This is not a sweet fluffy read in the least, but yet there is humor. It's a dark somewhat morbid sense of humor, but it's there. I loved every aspect of this story. From the start I had to say I felt a strong connection to poor Sam. His wife was a bit much, but I can also relate to her side as well, being married to an intellectual kind of person isn't very easy. However, I didn't like her and the way she treated Sam and her marriage. She came across often as a whiny you-know-what!
Solar Lonsky is one of those random/weird characters that are not easily categorized or described. He's eccentric, smart, and rather lovable in a unique way that I haven't come across in a long time. He's certainly not going to be easily forgotten!
The story unfolded rather quickly and kept me greedily flipping page after page, until the end and when I got there I really really really was satisfied. I cannot recommend this book ENOUGH. It was a delightful read.
