Here are excerpts from the reviews (read them in their entirety on Amazon) . . .
“I really liked it! Very quirky and clever writing! The characters grab you right away, take hold and you can’t wait to see what happens next. The only problem is that the book ended and I have to wait until March to find out what happens next!”
“Young Billy Green is one of the unforgettable characters in literature, the kind that comes around, moves in, stays, and occupies a place in your life. Is it Billy Green, or is it John Rachel’s ability to tell a good story? It is both. The story is epic in its scope. . . A wonderful, unforgettable read.”
“I read this book in an afternoon and then pondered it for several days. It’s hard to exactly pinpoint, but there is an incredible level of intelligence in the development of the main character Billy. He seems naive in some ways, yet in other ways you see that he is anything but! It’s this rich complexity that keeps me still analyzing Billy long after I read the last page. I am anxiously awaiting the second book.”
“Billy Green stole my heart. From his earliest days his dear mother loved him with a love so deep you could put your arms around it.”
“I laughed uproariously, and then I cried. You will be begging for more. Voila! Your wish has been granted. This is the first part of a trilogy which follows Billy until he’s twenty-eight. Part Two is coming soon.”
“This is written by someone who uses words so masterfully; who employs satire at its finest, can get downright dirty if life dictates it, and appears to have fun with it all.”
“John Rachel’s characters are awesome! I am an avid reader. Sometimes it takes awhile for a book to “lure” me in. Not with this novel though. I was “hooked” from the very beginning. I can’t wait for the next two installments to find out where it takes Billy.”
“John Rachel delivers another masterpiece with the style and insight only John Rachel can deliver!”
“This is a wonderful coming-of-age story that will grab you and charm you. Just read the first few pages and it’ll pull you right in. If you like Salinger, you’ll love this. It’s that great theme of a kid who knows too much for his own good in world populated by so-called adults who control the machinery. GREAT STUFF! A real pleasure to read.”
“A friend of mine who knows that I read science fiction an adventure books, suggested I read this book. At first I wondered why. This is the life story of some kid named Billy growing up through Catholic school, getting his first blowjob, Life love parents, all the usual problems we all have. What was different though is the author . . . because the author is an exceptionally good writer that creates a witty, clever and imaginative world for Billy to grow up in. You will be charmed with Billy and his bold and sassy way of dealing with the bumps and grinds of life. And you will wonder why this book only cost $.99, because it is written as well as any bestseller out there.”
