Format: Paperback
Worst purchase you'll ever make.

Terrible attempt at prose/text/book (unsure how to describe it as there are less than 80 pages of the entire thing). Do not consider, ever! I'm struggling to keep language and ideas within the constraints imposed which has led to this being such a brief review. The plot is ridiculous, the 'twist cliched, the characters flat. Everything about it is appalling.

You'll regret wasting your economic success on this trash.

People who've read the book will wonder what these other reviewers were reading. This truly is a terrible, terrible creation.

Format: Paperback
Mr. Overby is Falling is a fascinating little book. From the outset it is gripping, and powerful. Written like a thriller, this book plows along forcing you to turn the pages one after another.
A closer read reveals that more than just being a simple crime novel, this book is actually a philosophical tale about societal decay, entropy, existential angst and madness.
Part Fight Club, part Vonnegut, part Jean-Paul Sartre. Mr. Overby is falling is one of the best books I've read this year!

Format: Paperback
Mr. Overby is Falling is a fascinating, mean, vicious, utterly unforgettable book. At the outset it looks like a thriller, but if you look closer (and deeper) you begin to realize that it is something else altogether. This is a strange, philosophical book. It pulses with nihilism. It thrums with pain.
Mr. Overby is Falling is exciting, dark, and funny. It seems part Fight Club, part American Psycho, and part Jean-Paul Sartre.
A must read!

Format: Paperback
This one already shows all the signs of a cult classic just about to take off. At first you're gonna think, Oh no, here comes one last late brat pack lament when WAMMY! Mr. Overby starts to fall - and fallandfallandfallandfall, and you're in for more falling than you could imagine. This little book will have you biting your nails - and just long enough, too, because you feel that if Tyree goes any further you'll start on the fingers too and you're gonna just have to be medicated. Go for it. A brilliant, surreal thrill ride ... not to mention social commentary, satire, uncomfortable questions asked and answered uncomfortably, whadayagot, it's there. I can't imagine where this young author is going to take us next.
