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. Mike Lewis Wants Out Out Of His Meaningless Career In Broadcast Sales, Out Of His Shallow Relationships With Materialistic Women, Out Of The Youth Centric, Big City Rat Race Unfortunately He Has No Idea Where In Is, Until He Discovers An Idyllic Retirement Community In Florida That Promises A Peaceful, Sunny Life Of Golf And Hobbies On A Whim He Signs A Contract For A House, And Only Afterwards Does He Read The Small Print He Has To Be Over To Join The Enclave Trouble Is, He S Painted Into A Corner, He Engages The Help Of A Movie Makeup Artist And A Gerontologist, And Cons His Way Into The Club But, Once Inside, He Finds That This Particular Paradise Comes With A Whole New Set Of Problems This Tale Of One Man S Ridiculous Attempt At Early Retirement And His Unexpected Encounters With Lust, Drugs And Cosmetics Was Written By Paul Collis, A Londoner Now Living In California He Adapted It From His Screenplay Of The Same Name 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. review to come Good sense of humor and was able to keep my attention I am interested in reading by this author. 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. 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.
