  1. A comedic novel supposedly It s low key amusing than laugh out loud funny, even if you give it the benefit of the doubt about Dock Bass, who starts out as a real estate agent married to a woman named Terri, whom he loathes for never explained reasons This is clearly supposed to make us sympathetic to a strong, independant man trapped by the rules of society.Dock and I did not get off on the right foot, as you can probably tell.Anyway, by page 15 Dock has quit his job it made act like a hypocrit [...]

  3. Books that are fun to read seem rare or, at least, are harder to find these days All of Brad Smith s offerings that I ve read are not only entertaining they are full of surprises and innovative ideas Fun to read Smith s Busted Flush, written in 2005, is a gem, sure to be a favorite of Civil War buffs who relish the unusual but seldom find it in the huge piles of literature available.Set in contemporary Gettysburg, PA, the writer takes us through a combination of history, some physical remains of [...]

  6. Great book For sheer entertainment, Brad Smith has to be one of my favorite Canadian authors His heros are cool, smart, working class Joes who take on slimy villans who frequently have oddball or dimwitted side kicks This book along withAll Hat A Novel and One Eyed Jacks are a great trio of books.


  7. What fun A man inherits an old home in Gettysburg, and decides to renovate it He meets all sorts of people from Gettysburg, some bad While working on the house, he discovers a sealed door on the hill side of the house He rips it out only to find a treasure trove of Civil War memorabilia Finding a couple of professors at the college to help him out, they determine the memorabilia is worth thousands of dollars The fun begins when the newscasters, antique authorities and lawyers descend upon the sl [...]


  8. Not a bad little novel about the strange fascination physical memorabillia has for the collector This is akin to a Joseph Heller, El Leonard or Larry Beinhart sensibility applied to a funny situation involving what might or might not be true new civil war relics This is a tale that involves money, media and modern day attitudes in a delightful fashion.



  9. Not a major work of fiction by any means but a very amusing, mid slice of life crisis and triumph tome The PA setting is fun too Made me wanna go to Gettysburg.


  10. A fun little corker with a surprising amount to say about the true meaning of historical artifacts with respect to our past Worth reading for the opening chapter alone.
