Publisher's Summary

Abraham Koyfman is a widower of nine months. He works from home selling subliminal self-help tapes for a questionable doctor he found in an ad in the back of a magazine. His meager retirement is enough now that he's alone and Abraham is ready to quit his job - a task proving to be difficult due to the company's tactics. The combination of grief and the lack of empathy from his adult children have him ready to quit life, also. On the day he reaches the breaking point his friend Horace pays an unexpected visit with his new girlfriend. Horace's remedy for Abraham's plight is to party hard, act juvenile, and take a road trip to confront the doctor in charge of the work from home scam. But will an insufferable friend, a bad case of misanthropy, and the absurdity of modern technology and its sociocultural impact make Abraham's situation better?

A grumpy old man buddy comedy, CV Hunt style.

A grumpy old man buddy comedy that would make Walter Matthau blush. While this story is funny it also has the trademark darkness and misanthropy that I have come to know and love in Hunt's books. This book is a pretty significant deviation from her last one, Ritualistic Human Sacrifice, which was an insane horror novel. We Did Everything Wrong is definitely a testament to Hunt's literary versatility. There are scenes in the book where I was actually laughing out loud. Also, I listened to the audiobook version and Scott Serveen do a great job bringing the comedic dialog to life but also captures Abe's frustration and despair.

The story opens up with Abe, the narrator, planning to commit suicide by overdosing on sleeping pills because he cannot get over the death of his wife. His kids don't visit and he has just completely given up. When he is about to go through with the deed, he gets a call from his obnoxious (and hilarious) friend Horace. Horace comes to his house drunk, with his new girlfriend and they end up drawing Abe into their antics.

If you are a fan of Hunt's previous work then you will definitely enjoy We Did Everything Wrong.

Funny and Disgusting and With Lots of Heart

I loved this odd couple type comedy about a grieving widower and his drunk and boisterous friend who shows up on his doorstep. I've listened to the thing twice now and it plays out like a favorite comedy movie that you watch when you need something familiar and comforting.

It's like an episode of folks gone wild - seniors

I did enjoy this book. It was similar to watching Folks Gone Wild - Senior Edition. The book takes more twists and turns than the tape in the cassettes Abraham used to sell. Going on a road trip is the best and worst idea of his life. There's lots of adventure, mis-adventures, and fun. While some parts were a little melancholy and drug a bit, overall it was a good listen.

Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for a copy of this book to listen to.
