    One thought on “One More”

    1. I gave this book five stars because it was funny and awesome. Also, the author is outstanding at writing, working out, being cool, making inappropriate jokes, dancing, sock collecting and doing dishes (whoops, not that last one). He also happens to be one of my favorite people of all time. Times infinity.

    2. I picked this up simply because I was looking to read an independently published novel after realizing I had, up to this point, read none; and I have been recently interested as I see independent publishing as a future possibility. And I am so glad I chose this one, because it really sparked a fire in me. It's a great book and can certainly stand up to the big dogs with fancy publisher's names stamped on their spines. And I think it really helps to show where publishing is headed, and I now feel [...]

    3. My husband brought this home from the library because he was attracted by the cute smiling mailbox on the cover. Finding out that it was a local author was an added plus. Jeremy DeBottis's author blurb says that he lives in Syracuse, New York (as do I), and that he has never written a book before. That last part shows, either that the writing is unpolished, or that it didn't have a professional editor. There were scattered spelling and grammatical errors, as well as sentences that just read awkw [...]

    4. Grade: B+L/C Ratio: 20/80(This means I estimate the author devoted 20% of his effort to creating a literary work of art and 80% of his effort to creating a commercial bestseller.)Thematic Breakdown:35% - Humor30% - Gym culture20% - Mermaids15% - MysteryWacky characters can help make a book memorable, and One More is filled with a whole cast of them. DeBottis uses them very careful, drawing out plenty of humor while making sure the characters still feel human. A character like Wally (a man-child [...]

    5. Novel received from giveawayThis was one of the strangest books I've ever read. The characters ranged from a 64 year-old steroided up bodybuilder to a PhD candidate that acts like a knight-errant and many others that were just as odd. The plot was as random as the characters! I must, however, applaud Jeremy DeBottis for his imagination! Not only would I never have thought up such a story; I don't think I know anyone who could have! I found myself chucking at the story and, by the end, I really [...]

    6. I liked "One More". A lot. It was fun to read, had some hilariously quirky characters, and never took itself too seriously. It took a few pages for the story to hit its stride, but when it did, it was fantastic. I frequently chuckled and occasionally laughed out loud. A quote in the beginning of the story pays homage to "A Confederacy of Dunces", which becomes more and more fitting as the story progresses. I thought it was an impressive freshman effort from Jeremy DeBottis, and I really look for [...]

    7. It stresses me out to give star ratings normally, but I just can't handle it when I know the author. I just can't. I'm probably biased a bit, but I am really proud to know the mastermind behind this piece. He embraced the style of caricatures and didn't compromise on his humor or vivid imagination. I loved the mermaid world he created and I wish they were real

    8. The reason I find this book amazing is that as I was working on it and proofreading and editing it continued to amuse even though I knew everything that was going to happen. I hope you enjoy it too.
