#152: Bon Appetit - Glenn Gamble

After spending years building his gambling empire, Jim Money would love nothing more than to have a loving wife, and a stable family life free of the criminal elements that haunt him. He thinks he's found that with Jessica.
Until...
Jim Money bites off more than he can chew when he goes to collect a gambling debt. He's beaten, shot at, finds out that his girlfriend is involved with his best friend, and is forced to work with a woman he despises all in one day.
In trying to discover what is going on, a more sinister truth is brought to light.
THE PLAYERS:
Jim is a loan shark who wants nothing more than to ease out of his criminal lifestyle, marry his girlfriend and start a family.
Jessica is Jim's unreliable girlfriend who runs off with his best friend for an inexplicable reason.
Steve is Jim's best friend and enforcer. He's animal-like, and a deadbeat's worst nightmare.
Carla is Steve's tough as nails wife and who has a nose for detecting anything out of the ordinary. Jim disgusts her, but ends up teaming with him to find the answers that she's NOT looking for.
Chuck is a deadbeat who refuses to pay back money owed to Jim and almost gets him killed.
James is Chuck's hotheaded younger brother who destroys first and never ask questions.
THIS IS THE FIRST INSTALLMENT IN THE JIM MONEY SERIES.

My Opinion:
Warning: There is massive swearing in this book.
I happen to be okay with vulgarity though, so I didn't let it deter me from reading on.
This was a really cool story with a deep, dark twist. One that some won't be able to stomach.
Again that is not me.
Very cool short story. Very cool indeed.


5/5


Recommend? OH YES!!!!

  1. I love brutal and the dark twist your talking about but extreme cursing is a turn off to me.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
