5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, Entertaining, and Thought-Provoking 3 April 2017
By Abodesynergypr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Witty, funny and a nice twist!! What an entertaining and engaging read! This book sucked me in from the very first chapter, and I finished it in one sitting. This is an easy read. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

I had a wonderful ride to the very last page! Some part was so funny. LOL... I totally enjoyed this book. I laughed so hard my ribs and head started to hurt and my reaction was still craving for more.

The story is wonderful and alluring ... with plenty of humour.

The writer does an excellent job of pulling me in from the very beginning. The characters are instantly likeable and relatable. Andrew Hiller is such an amazing author. His writing style is so present, so engaging, you will love the unique warmth he brought to this hilarious novel.

I recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of this genre. A Climbing Stock is bound for the big screen. But read it first (Laughs).I don’t believe you will be disappointed. I intend to read more from this author in the future.Read it. You’ll love it. I did.

What an interesting book. I love the way it's written, the book is very inspirational. I really enjoyed the read, the author's writing style is of absolute top quality and it's fast-paced. The characters are well developed making the read an awesome passionate thriller with a great creative plot. Andrew Hiller did a beautiful job of bringing the characters to life. jack has been cheated and he is ready to fight for his right back. What an emotional read. This is one of those books I go back to read every few years and enjoy as much as I did the first time I read it. Highly Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Charming, Magical Story of BEAN 4 April 2017
By G. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What do you get when you combine a childhood classic fairy tale with a Don Quixote style longing for a simpler time before the advances of modern technology and economics? If you have an engaging sense of humor to go with a quick flowing writing style, you might come out A Climbing Stock.

The book explores with humor the way our modern economy is almost completely detached from producing things most of us understand. It does so with a protagonist who longs for his old company making ordinary things, but finding it ever harder to make ends meet selling things nobody thinks twice about in today's world. So like in the original fairy tale, he trades the failing source of family income. Only in this story it is for a few thousand shares of BEAN that grow into a huge fortune making who knows what.

How happy and secure would you be making a fortune in a way you did not understand? What if doing so changes the lives of people around you like people who used to work for you? Welcome to the modern world.

The question I came away with is "how much different is this from the modern stock investments many of us use for retirement being driven by computer models we pay somebody else to understand?" That parallel with today's modern world runs throughout the story, and it is a huge part of its magic charm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant read 13 April 2017
By Lynn Train - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A delightfully humorous twist on the fairy tale of Jack and the Beanstalk.
I was hooked on this little book by the first page and I've been desperate to read something similar since I finished it. The characters are so well developed that I felt a personal connection to John and felt as though I were fighting by his side against that dragon.
Hiller has a fantastically unique writing style that makes me attach to the book throughout and I'd love to see more of his work.
