If you are in a frivolous frame of mind, this is well worth a read.
Take some Keystone Cops, throw in a little Dukes of Hazzard, a dash of the kind of innuendo you might find in one of the British Carry On movies and another dash of mob caricature, and this is what you get. Zany characters, zany story that hits the funnybone.

One person found this helpful. I wasn't sure what to expect but this book captured my attention right away. It took me a bit to get the feel for the flow of this book. I was a little confused wondering if I missed something at the beginning but it's just because so much happens so quickly. The pace keeps up throughout the book, with well developed characters and storyline. I had no idea how it would end but I thoroughly enjoyed the whole ride!
I found this book to highly enjoyable, occasionally "laugh-out-loud" funny, and fairly unpredictable don't you hate when you can out guess the plot At first, I was perplexed that the lovable, bumbling, Casey Cumber was more interested in saving his marriage than his life, but as I began to know him better, it all came together.

If you're looking for a literary classic, you best move on, but if a light hearted comedy with some quirky characters is what you seek, then I heartily recommend this book. This is just a great read with a whole lot of laughs. Just about the time you think the "hero" will succeed, he does something stupid. Well, not really stupid, just laughable.
Great Characters And Humor I wasn't sure at first because of so many characters to keep track of but I. The characters were humorous and the story was so entertaining that it left me wanting more. In fact, how about a sequel, or maybe a movie?
There were some surprises and one in particular near the end that wowed me. I absolutely loved the book! Opposing Farces is a fun comic mystery that keeps the twists coming. Engaging, relatable characters pulled this reader into a caper that kept me guessing It's a great read, reminiscent of and sure to appeal to fans of Janet Evanovich and Jennifer Crusie.
