On Harvey & Eck - DAY ONE


After powering through the first three chapters, my reactions are varied. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the prose is packed. Staccato sentences and abundant profanity maintain interest. I am more Eck than Harvey and more Hub than Crunch, however, so at the moment I am not inclined to be especially sympathetic to Erin's protagonist. But then again I know I am a far cry from being an appropriately compassionate person.

I'll be interested to see how (if) those sentiments change over the remaining pages. And I'll be grateful if this book contributes to my personal growth.

This concludes Day One of the Twelve Days of Harvey & Eck, a novel by Erin O'Brien.

Your review method is intriguing as it somewhat reflects the piecemeal way Erin's novel comes together over a series of communiques.

I like it.

Question for Erin:

Will you post Garretts 12 step program as the review. I think you should. It's cutting edge.

This is going to be like having sex for a really long time.

The question is, will it be like having excruciatingly good sex with a well-hung Satan or painfully bad and embarrassing sex with a tee-pee nubbed saint?

There are those who would say that sex is like pizza. You eat it good or bad.

I will stay tuned, garrett darling.

I hate to state the obvious, but it is now day three of the twelve days of Harvey & Eck, and here we sit with but one entry.

Erin should ask for her gifts back.

I would have at least read the book by now. Sheesh.
