Philip Horkman is a happy man, the owner of a pet store called The Wine Shop, and on Sundays a referee for a local kids’ soccer league. Jeffrey Peckerman is the proud and loving father of a star athlete in the girls’ ten-and-under soccer league, and he’s not exactly happy with the ref.
The two of them are about to collide in a swiftly escalating series of events that will send them running for their lives, pursued by the police, soldiers, subversives, bears, revolutionaries, pirates, and a black ops team that does not exist. Where all that takes them you can’t even begin to guess, but the literary journey there is a masterpiece of inspiration, chaos, and unadulterated, well, lunacy. And they might even learn a lesson or two along the way.

Hilarious. I have never read a book twice, but I might have to re-read this. Crazy and entertaining.
The book is a healthy belly laugh from start to finish. If you're going to read this on an airplane, be sure to warn your seat mate! It is poignant to a point, as well. Very,very witty and wacky!
great to fizzle
This book started out great, one of the ones that has you LOL to yourself. After about page 200, it is all downhill. Not only is it not funny, by the end it concerns politics. Not recommended.
