Want a fast-paced, highly original, really funny read?
If Carl Hiaasen and The Office had a baby, it might look something like ANIMAL CRACKER.
Can a bunch of smart, sassy women get the goods on their boss at Boston’s venerable Animal Protection Agency? Hal Mason is Brad-Pitt handsome, with a Harvard professor wife and an adorable but shiftless son who wins the heart of Diane Salvi, the organization’s new communications director and the book’s narrator.
The malapropping, narcissistic Hal, famous for his animal-themed ties and jokes, has managed to earn the adulation of the organization’s board of directors and the scorn of his staff. When his negligence leads to the dogshit literally hitting the fan, Diane and her reporter roommate Genie set out to dig up some dirt on him, with a little help from friends in the office.
There's never a bad time for a fun read in which the good guys (or gals) wreak vengeance on a conniving boss who deserves no less.
Thanks for considering ANIMAL CRACKER, and I do swap reads.
P.S. I notice you have some space on your shelf. I'm rising in the rankings; your backing and rating would mean a lot right now.
