No Hope For Gomez - Graham Parke


Synopsis:
It's the age-old tale:
Boy meets girl.
Boy stalks girl.
Girl already has a stalker.
Boy becomes her stalker-stalker.
We've seen it all before, many times, but this time it's different. If only slightly. When Gomez Porter becomes a test subject in an experimental drug trial, he is asked to keep track of any strange experiences through a blog. What Gomez isn't ready for, is so many of his experiences suddenly seeming strange; the antiques dealer trying to buy his old tax papers, his neighbor boiling salamanders on his balcony at midnight, the super sexy lab assistant who falls for him but is unable to express herself in terms outside the realm of science. But when one of the trial participants turns up dead and another goes missing, Gomez begins to fear for his life. No longer sure who he can trust and which of his experiences are real and which merely drug induced illusions, he decides it's time to go underground and work out a devious plan.
Now, years later, his blogs have been recovered from a defunct server. For the first time we can find out firsthand what happened to Gomez as he takes us on a wild ride of discovery.

My Opinion:
From the moment I saw this book and read the funny description, I knew I had to read it. Was I ever blown away by the kindness of another blogger when she offered to send it to me. As soon as I got it at my door, it was on!
Needless to say, the affair was brief, and yes it was THAT good! However my love affair continues...
The author really knows how to use his humorous side to his advantage in writing. Very quick witted throughout, and I laughed like a mad woman out loud often. I couldn't help how lost I got in the story. And yes, beyond the humor there was a mysterious plot happening. It was thick too. The blend of both was a perfect mixture to make for a great afternoon delight!
One criticism, yes there is one, curious as to how a guy who's knocked out or indisposed of can blog, but whatev's. Okay two criticisms... abrupt ending.
I am most definitely putting this on my recommendation list. I wouldn't dream of ritualistically burning it... (Private joke for Graham)... I shall only pass this quirky yet wonderful read onto another.
(5/5)

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
