Item description for The Adventures of Guy by Norm Cowie...
Every once in a while, a book comes along that WOWS you...keeps you thumbing through the pages, causes emotions to pour from your soul...leaking stuff, like inspiration, tears of joy or sadness. It even makes the Oprah book list. Well, this ain't that kind of book. The Adventures of Guy is a book of fun, of truths so ridiculous that you just have to sit down and drink a milk shake and ponder the fallacies of human nature and satire and why some day there will be more attorneys in the world than non-attorneys...and what a world like that will be like...and you feel sorry for your grandchildren, because, thank God, you'll be buried by then...and the attorneys will still be fighting over your estate. Join Guy and his roommates Thurman and Knob, plus a comely Amazon (whose breasts, like the Big Gulp, are too big for the cup holder) on their Quest to get his little brother's brain back from sinister forces who actually believe a teenager's brain is worth something more than just playing Playstation. A Quest where they run into monsters too horrible to mention here...but we'll give you a hint...think "plumber's butt."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Adventures of Guy?
The (Hilarious) Adventures of Guy Sep 2, 2007
This book is a witty and sarcastic tale with great characters that will make you literally laugh out loud. Cowie's style is very unique and makes for an easy read, but one that will hold your attention from page 1 to the very end. This is not a book I would recommend to my 13 year old sister, but I certainly recommend it to all the adults and most older teens I know. It's a funny book with real-life villains (mostly).
Guyquest Aug 25, 2007
A funny book about a guy And Guy's also his name Your standard goof-off slacker-dude Without a claim to fame
And then one day a phone call came That sent him on a quest He's forced to leave his dirty home (More like his filthy nest)
There's something wrong with little Seth At least he's not himself In no time flat, Guy's pals become A sor-cer-er and elf
It seems your quest is not complete Without a certain mix So they recruit a warrior Stacked like a house of bricks
There's something evil chasing them And monsters everywhere Look out for buzzing little flies And plumber's derriere
The truth of telemarketing The huge attorney plot All made as simple as the choice To supersize, or not?
It's just as crazy as it sounds With potty jokes and worse A madcap world of fantasy Reviewed by me in verse
A warning to you, friends of mine And you, my dear consumer Don't bother picking up this one If you've no sense of humor
