    Story
    "Another unfortunate case of author reading book."

    "Be Now, Buddy What" is an interesting story with some fascinating observations about today's neo-spiritualism and the cult of celebrity. Unfortunately, Dan Spencer saw the need (like far too many authors today) to read his own book.

    Spencer tries to do character voices and in many cases (especially feminine ones) proves horribly inept at it. The bulk of the narration is serviceable but some characters (especially that of Buddy himself) grate on the eardrums.

    I recommend this book solely for the story. If you can't stomach half-baked author narration then look for it in a different format.
