From Library Staff

Vital, riotously funny and energetic, Pierre puts lust for vengeance, materialism and trial by media squarely in the dock. The main character emerges as the lovable upholder of love, truth and homespun wisdom in a world gone mad.

this book was VERY funny and a page turner as well. I thought the dialouge between the characters was great, and the plotline was superb! Vernon God Little is one of the best books of 2003 by far. I would highly recommend it to anybody looking for a great book to read. Also, its fairly short, and it reads fast, so you can probably finish in a fairly fast timeframe. Check it out at your local public library today!

Excellent read. Good insights and comic relief. Enjoyed the uniqueness of Pierre's voice.
