I'm Gonna Live My Life Like a Jimmy Buffett Song

Post by catsway »

I just ran across this book on B&N and Amazon. No copies at our local store. Before I order it, would anyone have a personal review of the book?


Jack Danielson always thought he was happy. After all, he had a serious career, a tall, skinny blonde girlfriend, and a condo chock full of Ikea furniture. But then one day an icy Minnesota freeway and an overly close encounter with a Peterbilt truck make him rethink his lifestyle, and he sets out to escape from the ordinary and to live his life like a Jimmy Buffett song. As contemplative as it is fun, this light and breezy book is seasoned with a healthy peppering of Buffetteria, and is the perfect tale for anyone who ever dreamed of chucking it all to lie on a beach and drink margaritas all day.
And don't forget to check out "Jack And Di Rum Song", also available here on Amazon in paperback and Kindle, the sequel to "I'm Gonna Live My Life Like A Jimmy Buffett Song" and the second book in The Island Series.

I don't know anything about that one. Sorry. I did just finish reading Cayman Escape by L. Neyl Rietcheck. It has some elements that are Buffett related/inspired. It is a nice page turner, with lots of twists and turns.

Have it - and the sequel - Jack and Di Rum Song.

Gotta tell you - it is WONDERFUL!
The story sweeps you past any tiny hiccups in the writing. It is a print version of why I like Buffett - down to earth dreaming with a side of smart a$$. You'll be humming songs as you read it, and longing to join Jack - if you aren't already a Jack clone.

It (sadly) won't win awards. But it has a place on my bookshelf - right beside the vodoo doll and three pink flamingos.....
Best served on a snowy winter night with a frozen concoction - or at least some red wine!
