4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining easy read 10 April 2014
By SdP - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
In this book there is everything you need for an entertaining story: there are colorful characters and some hysterically funny situations.
It is about two friends but most of all about two writers and it is full of phrases, idioms, repartee, and eccentricities typical of writers.
Timing is good but the word choice sometimes is a bit too gross.
I’m a writer and despite this not being my favorite genre I found myself giggling and tittering at the absurdities of some scenes.
In particular I loved the “I am not a romance writer.” situation because is the triumph of pure silliness but is somewhat believable.
There is comedy and farce, but there are also human emotions,in particular the conflict between the desire to have a good reputation and the willingness to do whatever it takes to succeed (including writing a romance novel).
The book also features semi-serious but still wryly and deftly expressed observations like for example:

The statistics tell the story. The number of romance books published each year is equal to the
combined annual sales of mainstream fiction, science fiction, fantasy, westerns, mystery and suspense,
religious fiction, adventure, and every other kind of novel being written.
“It’s discouraging,” I admit. […]
“So, what you’re saying is that you have gone from J.D. Salinger to Danielle Steele.”
“I couldn’t beat them,” he concedes, “so I joined them.”

Not all the jokes are brilliant but there is always a nice touch of humor.
If you are a writer you will enjoy it.

I received this book at Story Cartel, in exchange for an honest review.
3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but not my favorite 10 May 2014
By Tammy L. Hildebrandt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I had a hard time with this book. I don't know if it was because of the story line, the way it was written or just me. I didn't get lost in the story, nor did I truly enjoy reading it, I wish I could say otherwise, but I was asked for an honest opinion and that is what I will give. I had to force my way through the book. Maybe for others it will draw you in and you will love it, for me it was tedious. I never did figure out why these two ever spent time together, let alone write together. I hope it is a joy for you, but for me, not so much.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious story 6 April 2014

No Cats, No Chocolate by Ken Kuhlken and Alan Russell - Review

I liked the skillful way Ken and Alan started the book and set up the story in the first chapter using dialogue between Ken and Alan.

Here's a sample of the witty dialogue:

"They’re going to pay for our air fare? Our lodging?”
“They’re going to pay for our expenses,” Ken says.
“What does that mean?”
“It means another road trip.”

This is a really funny book with some great lines.
One of my favorites is: "There’s a whole lot of baby talk going on, all of it coming from the two adults."

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride and the book.

Highly recommended, if you want to read a book that makes you laugh out loud.

(I downloaded a free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.)

3.0 out of 5 stars I don't usually read horror... 1 April 2014
By Linda Thinks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
(With the title involving "no chocolate" I thought this was a horror story...) But I did get this book free for my opinion and I do love free and who doesn't love to give their opinion?

Once in a while a book comes along that is really life changing, edifying, makes you want to be a better person. This is not THAT book.
Maybe you are a fan of SNL, Monty Python. Dumb and Dumber. OK, stick with them....

But maybe you just want to check your brain out for a couple hours, grab some chocolate and laugh. Maybe you want to +++spoiler alert+++ go for a crazy ride that takes you no where, makes you laugh and leaves you back off where you left off...where ever that was...while all the time feeling like maybe you are missing the point and maybe there is none...but it seemed funny at the time...
If so, then go ahead and read the book and just laugh. It feels good! Oh, and don't miss the Gamblers Anon meeting and the writers confession. Funny!

2.0 out of 5 stars okay 29 Mar 2014
By jaynep140 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this ebook to give a review! I got it for free to do so.

Well, I actually admire anyone that has the imagination to write a book and loved the title!

That where it ends for me. I tried my best but never could come to like this story. I know not all books are for everyone. I struggled to get past the first chapter. I finally finished it and if I had not agreed to do this review honestly I wouldn't have.
