Review # 61: My Sweet Saga by Brett Sills

     Brandon is a run-of-the-mill 30 year old, but with no zest for life, he feels like his is just going through the motions. He works a dead-end job, is unsure about his upcoming nuptials, feels hated and judged by his future in-laws, and his racist butt-hole of a father just reappeared in his life. So it's no great shock that he can't manage to focus on anything in-particular; that is, until his lotto-winning father insists that Brandon accompany him to Stockholm, Sweden to meet a man that could change their lives. It is here that Brandon meets Saga. A beautiful Swedish woman that shows him not only how to live, but how to love. Unfortunately, this new-found love of life leads him to impersonate a NASA employee, become a national hero, get arrested, break indecent exposure laws, and have two fiances. 
     This book was a total over-the-top surprise! Brett Sills' writing style, dialogue, and characters are brilliant. Never have I laughed so much at some of the most ridiculously funny and crude material that I've ever read. The characters are well-developed and strangely relatable, and the discussions they have are full of wit and blunt-edged sarcasm. It was fun to read a book completely in a male's point of view, especially since most romance/comedy reads focus on the women. My Sweet Saga is completely unique with a plot full of unforeseen twists. It is refreshing to read a book about how messed up and wonderfully unexpected life can be. I highly recommend this to adults who want to read something different and laugh out loud doing it! I will be anxiously waiting for Brett Sills' next novel! 

Rating: On the Run (4.5/5)
