Yes! I've already reccomended it. It was funny, the subject matter was fresh and it made me feel a lot better about my own job. Plus I learned some tips that I'll use during my limited travels. I'm going to be passing out the baby bricks.
There were too many laugh out loud moments. The most memorable though was hearing the extent to which the author tried to provide customer service--an amazing level of service that I think any company would be delighted to see--only to see management try to manage him out of a job. Sad times for the service industry.
No--has he written anything else? I'd listen.
It really made me laugh. He has a great speaking style and really paints an interesting picture of the many colorful characters he encountered.
I only got this book because Dan Savage reccomended it and I was like "if Dan says so I'll try it." I would never have picked it up otherwise. It was such a great book though. I was worried at first that it would make me never want to stay at a hotel because I thought it might be filled with tales of bed bugs and germs, but I was plesantly surprised. I've always known that that is a tough job to be in, but I have even more respect for hotel staff now. I was always a good tipper before but now I am really going to be a "hitter" as Tommy would say.
Pro gun Christians or romance readers.
No. Not good writing at all!
I had no problems with the narrator. It was the writing.
Ugh, definately the scene when the main female character is getting sexually harrassed so she thinks about cutting her hair to appear less sexy. Ok, your life is at risk and this guy is man handling your kids, you don't know where your next meal is coming from, for sure most women are going to think about changing their looks. Also, the scene after he attacks her. Society has turned to anarchy, just murder him and bury the body. That would be more interesting at least.
Love the premise and wish the author explored more about what the government would do in that situation and how people really would find food/survive instead of just focusing on one really boring couple and their quest to reunite. Hell, if you have to only concentrate on two people, at least give us their kids' stories from their kids' persepectives? So much potential that didn't get explored. It was also really sexist, IMHO. The mom was such a dumbass.
