Great Reviews for Boomerang

There have been some very nice reviews for Boomerang showing up on Smashwords lately.

Review by: Jessica on Jan. 01, 2010 : star star star star star
Loved this book! Hutcheson does a great job creating a host of wacky characters all after the same object. I really enjoyed seeing all of the different plot lines and watching them all converge. I will definitely be recommending this one!

Alan Hutcheson has writen a wonderfully fun tale that will keep you reading all night. Ted and Jerry make a unique team on the hunt for a strange relic once owned by a super powerful Washingtom lawman; and if thats not enough they have a crossbow wielding albino after them to keep them from slowing down. The characters are weird and entertaining they will make you laugh. I can't wait for Alan's next book.

This very funny book had great characters and a fast-moving plot. The reader is led to wonder what could possibly be so special about the title object. A madcap quest takes the various groups of people closer and closer to the goal. Each of them will have very different reasons. Messed-up hotels, dodgy cars, and a slew of other details makes this novel seem like it could happen to you. I loved this book. It would make a great movie, too.

Great fun from start to finish. The various antics of the characters had me laughing out loud as I visualized the situations. I loved following the old lady sisters, Amelia and Doreen (they were so real that I could almost hear their conversations) and Ted and Jerry (that guy had more stuff he was into than poor Ted could keep up with). If that wasn't enough, add in the alphabet soup of government agencies and “the clothing optional former onion festival queen". I had no idea how it was going to end and couldn't wait to find out. This will definitely be on my to-be-read-again list.


Am I trying to convince you to shell out $1.99 for Boomerang? Yep!

Thanks, lilac_jive!

I have had a lot of folks tell me that they really like Oz. I am pleased to know that I captured his character well enough for readers to take him to heart.

I can't seem to write anything without including a dog in it. One of my two Works in Progress has a long haired dachshund as a major character. Loosely based on Odie, my own somewhat addled but lovable pooch. And the follow-up to Boomerang has a woofer waiting in the wings too. Not sure how I can bring Oz back for more bows (and wows), but since his neighbors Doreen and Amelia have some real story potential, who knows?

Best,
Alan
