Review: Mondo Bohemiano by Quentin J. Parker

Mondo BohemianoDescription: Is there life after having your heart destroyed? When ‘happily ever after’ crashes and burns?

In the shadow of losing the love of his life, one man attempts to salvage his soul. He is Nigel Q. Bunnytail. Twenty-something, artistic warrior prince, and sex fiend par excellence.
To accomplish this, he decides to leave behind the tainted trappings of his Philadelphia and his band of gifted friends, for the rustic charm of Spokane, Washington – and the white-haired therapist Sigrid Anderson, who can’t wait to either marry him or dissect him.

Mondo Bohemiano is a love and sex farce – sometimes funny, sometimes poignant – and maybe equally instructive on what to do as well as what to avoid.

Cover: It’s like the book, I’d say.

Review: The foreword was really great and I was excited to be able to read this book. Sadly the book itself is nothing like the foreword. The story had nice little touches like the mc sliding like a rock star into his bathroom but this couldn’t keep me reading. I just didn’t get into the story, part because of the strange writing style, part because of the following things.

Sometimes there was so many information it felt like info dumping (the part about the computer game for example).

He bought along his boombox, and the garish music he played through it made her want to open her wrists. ~kindle pos. 722-728

Is that supposed to be funny? It felt like it. It’s not.

I don’t know how many times I’ve read degrading female terms like bitch, slut or whore. But if I were to take a shot each time, I’d be drunk really fast.

The characters’ relationships were a little confusing to me and sometimes toxic.

Overall I felt a big question mark hovering over my head. This was no story for me, but maybe you have to be in this scene (is that even a scene? I don’t know), to get it and to like it.

If you are interested, you can buy and sample it here.

The author provided me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
