    Story
    (1)

    Chauncey Greer is the owner of Cute Boy Card Company, a thriving company in Atlanta. As a teenager, he was a member of a popular boy band, but left in disgrace when word got out that he and his band mate D were more than good friends. Chauncey is a free spirit, on the brink of 40 with a body admired by both men and women. Not into being categorized, Chauncey's been known to hook up with men and women, but he's found that women ask too many questions, so he's just focusing on the fellas.

    Overall

    I am sad to say that the wait for a new E. Lynn Harris book has disappointed me. " I Say A Little Prayer" is more about preaching than it is about praying. Did the Democratic National Committee pay you for the ending of the book?

    Bland characters with confusing flashbacks, along with a message of hate for political and religious leaders whose views on homosexuality do not match those of the author, corrupt the wonderful works E. Lynn Harris wrote before.

    Carl Reiner intersperses plots of biblical heresy, adultery, mild schizophrenia, and quadruplets separated at birth. NNNNN is the title of the protagonist Nat's novel, which is a comic retelling of Cain and Abel's struggles to procreate in the Garden of Eden, parts of which Reiner includes in his story. As Nat reinvents the origin of man, he investigates his own origins, looking into his adoption and discovering that he is one of four quadruplets who have been separated at birth.

    Overall

    I have been a fan of Carl Reiner ever since his Alan Brady days on the Dick Van Dyke show. Aside from his son Rob (meathead), I have never disliked anything he has been involved in.

    I really enjoyed hearing the author read his own book. Carl Reiner made the characters come to life with just slight variations of tone and accent for each character. The story holds your interest and is full of tongue-in-cheek humor. Just when you think you have figured something out, Carl creates a new twist that keeps you guessing and wanting to hear more. He brings all of the open story lines together and then adds an unexpected twist at the end.
