    One thought on “The Wrinkly”

    1. I like a good comedy, and I've seen one or two communities in Florida that have quite frankly scared me with their perfect appearances and promises of idyll, so this seemed like a good read for me.Mike Lewis is 39, sells TV advertising slots & dates younger women. On a trip to Florida for a conference he discovers a community with wonderful leisure facilities and every class going to enrich a life. All the people he sees look happy.

    2. All you have to do is read the book description and it should be obvious that the premise of this book is one ripe with comedic potential. That the twist is the opposite of the norm, most people would rather pass themselves off as being younger, not older, adds to the humor of the situation. A quick, light-hearted read that tickled my funny bone.**Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

    3. It's not the usual 40-year-old man who tries to pass himself off as a guy in his 60's just to live in an idyllic retirement community. You have to suspend belief. But this is a whacky, fun, fast-to-read yarn.

    4. This is a sit down and have a good laugh book. I can see myself in one of those communities in just a few years, except with real wrinkles. I wondered at first if the book would be like reading an old script of Mrs Doubtfire but this story was alot funnier.

    5. Some people have said it's 'laugh out loud' funny, and others believe it would make a good movie. I agree with them.(Well, I have to. I'm the author.)
