David Iserson Firecracker


Firecracker by David Iserson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I can’t remember the last time I read a novel in a single day–but this morning, after calling in sick to work, I sat down to read Firecracker, and it got me through the whole day. It’s funny, fast, and satisfying. And, by the way, when I say funny, I don’t mean it has occasional spurts of humor. I mean I laughed out loud at least once a page. The main character, Astrid, starts of painfully shallow–until you realize you’re the shallow one for judging her in the first place. A great, fun read. Go buy this book.
