Reviews - What do customers think about Fairway to Hell: Around the World in 18 Holes?

Sensationally funny  Aug 2, 2008
There is really nothing I can say about Fairway To Hell that hasn't already been said. The constant stream of startlingly original and side-splittingly funny similes and metaphors and sarcasms, the dizzying complexity of the chapters, the characters that you'd swear have been stolen from your own circle of acquaintances... three perfectly formed pearls of masterful comic writing. Aaaaaahhhhh.....
Effortlessly funny  Jul 17, 2008
Mr. Lidz is as superbly nonsensical as ever. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more annoying than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.
Better than most  May 29, 2008
This book contains a very nice balance of the real spirit of golf and the fun side of golf. Some of the chapters are questionable but others are touching and funny at the same time. The author has found the right people to show how deep this game can go into the human condition. But unlike other books that try to do the same, this one avoids taking itself too seriously. Most books of this type just plain fail. This one does not and deserves attention. Seriously, a mini-golf marathon in Myrtle Beach, sign me up.
Hitting The Sweet Spot  May 5, 2008
There's a moment in every golfer's life that we remember forever. It belongs to that period after a perfect swing, when the sweet spot of the driver has met the ball with a thick, solid click. The ball screams off the tee on a low, rising climb, and just in the last quarter of its flight when you think it might start falling, the spin you've put on it bites into the air and the ball lifts, climbing more steeply and slowly in a last flare of energy. And then you get the moment, when the flight of the ball connects with the feeling of the strike and the two have travelled up the club, through your arms and shoulders and into your heart. I got much the same feeling after finishing this funny, funny book.
A sharp and subtle voice  May 4, 2008
Lidz is a true satirist with an eye for the ridiculous, the bogus and the vain. He is deeply skeptical about many things and his humor can be savagely cutting, but I do not think it is ever cruel. He is hard but fair. It is encouraging to find that he has lost none of the wickedly sharp powers of observation that have distinguished his work in the New York Times.
