They say that a picture is worth a 1000 words, since my cell phone has a camera, and it would take a VERY long time typing 1000 words with my thumbs so I generally prefer to stick with taking pictures.
This is why when J Lee Glassman’s book Jonny Bails Floatin and the luck of the bio luminescence landed on my desk the very first thing I did was grab a beer, head out to the pool and then take a picture of the book.
1000 words down! Reviewing books is easier than I thought! I cracked the book open and was instantly sucked in to the weird and wonderful world of Jonny Bails Floatin, and his wild musical adventures in the Keys.
For the record, I have never been down to Key West, we’re working on it, but so far have only made it as far as the Islemorada Fish Company. I mean seriously, once you get this beautiful view why go any further?
2000 words, I’m on a roll… so I was saying, I’ve never been to Key West, but after reading the book, it confirmed that Key West was exactly how I imagined it. A delightful little town full of music, crazy residents, sex starved tourists, music, beautiful sunsets, fishing, music, Irish pubs, crazy musicians, weed, music and police who arrest people for playing music naked from balconies. Am I close? Did I mention music?
I really need to find the time to get to Key West.
In Amazon Jonny Bails Floatin is listed under Science Fiction & Fantasy / Science Fiction / Adventure, but when you take into account that it is set in Key West it should really be under Fiction / Fantastic tales from Key West. It’s an easy read that anyone who enjoys a good weekend read would enjoy.
I would write a real review, but I need to start planning my Key West trip. Buy the book & review it yourself, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!
