Dr. Gideon Box, world-famous surgeon, is extremely good at his job. He’s never lost a patient…but he has issues. He’s antisocial. Doesn’t mix well with others. Breaks into people’s homes and assumes their identities. Occasionally kills other doctor’s patients. He’s had bad luck with women his entire life. Big surprise, right?
His psychiatrist tells him to join a dating service. Tells him to seek women from small towns. Says they’ll possess basic core values, be less shallow and self-centered than the hookers and strippers he’s been dating. She tells him to take a week off and visit these women. Tells him to be positive, keep an open mind. So Dr. Box joins a dating website, spends two weeks narrowing down the candidates, and eventually settles on three small-town Kentucky women who seem to possess the qualities his psychiatrist recommended, as well as the one quality Dr. Box seeks: excessive horniness.
He sets out to meet these women, starting with Faith Hemphill, who lives in Ralston, Kentucky. He flies to Nashville, rents a car, gets within two hours of Ralston...and meets a hot young waitress named Trudy Lake. Then all hell breaks loose.
This story was not really like the blurb but better than it. It was very good the narration I think helped it to be better than it would have been in print. Both narrators were excellent! However after 3/4 way through I would find my self laughing and then next minute wishing it would hurry up to the end as the stupid silly & crazy storyline was wearing thin...but i listened to this book all in 2 sittings over just a day and a half. The ending I think was not as funny as the author probably thought it was but this was such a long crazy ride it had to end some how.
All in all I enjoyed listening to the story very much but was also glad when it was over. (If that makes any sense)
I had enough of small town southern stereotypical humor by that point.
Hilarious story made even better by fabulous narration, especially by Kevin T. Collins!
Loved the redneck accents!
Don't miss this
If you could sum up Box in three words, what would they be?
HE'S BAD LUCK
What did you like best about this story?
His lack of emotion and he is full of sarcasm just like my nest friend. :)
What does Kevin T. Collins and Amy Landon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
the accents were brought across well
If you could rename Box, what would you call it?
His name is perfectly fine wouldn't change it for nothing
Any additional comments?
I hope they get married LOL :) Mr and Mrs Box <3
What I liked most about this story is the fact that ALL the characters have a great sense of humor.
What did you love best about Box?
I enjoyed that the plot was unpredictable, you always had to listen to know what would happen next. There was non stop drama and hilarity from the start of the story until the very end. The entire plot lasted a weekend but had a lifetime's worth of mishaps. Just when you think "what else could possibly go wrong", there is another interesting turn of events.
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favorite character would have to be Trudy Lake because of her sense of adventure and her perception of what is "fun".
Which character – as performed by Kevin T. Collins and Amy Landon – was your favorite?
My all time favorite character performance in the book was the voice of the twins (Renfo and Cledis) done by Kevin T. Collins
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I listened to the book all in one siting because the plot was so unexpected and had you wondering "whats next"
Any additional comments?
If you are tired of the predictable love stories and need a good laugh, BOX is the book for you.
