Almost too realistic for fantasy
This story evoked many memories of childhood road trips. This story hits all the high points: everything from pecan rolls to reptile farms. Add to the mix a few possessions and you have one hell of a yarn (pardon the pun). Excellent!
Don't make the car angry!
Great podcast of an entertaining novel. The story gets funnier with every mile the O'Brien family travels. I took a lot of road trips as a kid, but they were nothing like this.
Hell Comes with Wood Paneled Doors
I downloaded this story for work because it looked interesting but did I ever underestimate it!! When I left work, I kept listening and I'm sure the people around me wondered what the lady in the car next to them was laughing so loudly about. It is a GREAT story, very funny and soooo true for those of us who took road trips with their crazy families. Download and prepare to laugh!!!
