What People are Saying About This - Shadez

“Being of the female persuasion, I was curious to know what goes inside the mind of a man…

The protagonist has to overcome many hurdles and gets out of many awkward (though funny) situations to win the game. To find out what happened next or if he is indeed the dad, you will have to read the book…

The author certainly knows how to captivate his audience and to keep them interested right to the last page. The author did a good job of keeping up the suspense and till a certain point in the story I wasn't sure if the protagonist was the dad and what surprise will come next. I often chuckled to myself during the reading. I liked the humor of the author and the unique way he had of describing the scenes. Alas, the protagonist I liked less and even distaste to a point. I couldn't connect to him at all, though I sympathized with his situation. I found him to be shallow, vain hypocrite, and even a jerk at times. He didn't come out smelling good, though he was in the right. I liked his honesty though and found his voice original and refreshing.

The writing style is chatty with the use of slang as befits a young man. This and the direct address to the reader throughout the story made the story more personal and authentic. It took me time to get used to the writing, but once I did the story sucked me in. Not many authors can pull this off without fallen into the stereotyping trap and the author managed to pull this off admirably.

Saying that, overall I quite enjoyed this romp through the colorful mind of a male and recommend it. After giving it much though, I decided to rate this book 4 out of 4 stars due the originality of the premise, the subject matter and the style of writing. Any author who manages to cause me to feel that strongly about the hero and his situation worth his salt and deserves full points and kudos. If you ever wonder what goes through the mind of "Deadbeat Dad", and even if you didn't, don't miss out this book!”
