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

Amanda Richards, August 25, 2007
Buy this book!!  Oct 13, 2006
A great read, sucks you in quickly and keeps you laughing. Very funny. The existance of telemarketers is finally explained.
A profound, funny, and persistently entertaining read from first page to last  Jun 10, 2006
Norm Cowie's debut novel, The Adventures Of Guy: Written By A Guy (Probably), is the creative and hilarious story of Guy and his roommates Thurman and Knob (as well as this site), who in their quest to save Guy's little brother from his evil captors think they will find great worth in the mind of a small boy. Satirical and endlessly hilarious, The Adventures Of Guy introduces readers to a creatively positioned philosophy and analytical metaphor of human nature. Norm Cowie is a truly skilled and engaging storyteller whose novel, The Adventures Of Guy, is very strongly recommended as a profound, funny, and persistently entertaining read from first page to last.
