What on earth was I thinking? A book cover with a toilet on and the title Flushboy......and the premise of a 16 year old boy, working at his dad's drive through urinal. Not sure which part of my brain thought this would be a compelling read.
It wasn't. I don't doubt the author can write entertaining books, I just don't think they are entertainment for me.
I wasn't put off by the mechanics of the customer's usage of the John and Jane cups provided at our innovative business, just bored and indifferent to events due to a lack of empathy for our 16 year old hero.
Mercifully short at 160-odd pages long, but in my opinion could have been vastly improved by everyone in the book drowning in a tank of urine in the first 10 pages, followed by 150 pages of anything else.......doodles, cartoons, recipes, photos of toilets, anything.
2 stars from 5..........why not a 1? He can write and he deserves a star for at least producing something original if not something I enjoyed.
I might have been better served by reading his Zombie Bake-Off or more likely Growing Up Dead in Texas.
Accessed from Net Galley........something I brought upon myself.
