    1. Original review here onepage.tinamats oil aI ve always loved Ray Blackston, ever since I got Flabbergasted A Novel on a whim back in Manila International Book Fair 2006 I loved Jay Jarvis and the gang, and it s a treat to read his books because I get to somehow peek into a guy s mind and sort of understand them better.I think Ray is the only one I know who writes Christian lad lit What s lad lit, you say To make it simple, it s chick lit, but with a guy narrator It has all the fun and setting an [...]

    4. This is a fun lighthearted read that manages to touch on some serious subjects without ever turning into a serious book Last Mango in Texas is written by a man and the main character, from whose point of view the story is told, is also a man The story follows Kyle Mango from the day his father had the talk with him, a talk that happened not long before his father left home for good off to his college days at Texas Tech, where Gretchen helped rescue him from life as a fraternity pledge to the day [...]

    5. Kyle Mango seeks to avoid coming into the sins of his father and the sins of his uncle while trying to win the favor of the girl he wants to marry This was extremely light reading with thin plot lines I missed the strong faith element that could be found in Blackston s Flabbergasted I ve had this same complaint with other books by this publisher and I m wondering if their restrictions don t allow for meaty but still amusing fiction Any strikes and I may avoid this publisher altogether.

    6. this novel is an extremely lightweight coming of age in texas story with the barest of plot lines what boggled my mind was the suggested book club discussion topics at the end of the book this is one of the last books I would put on a suggested reading list, unless you were in middle school in my opinion, don t bother with this one.

    7. DISCLAIMER I typically would not have picked up this book But a woman at church LOVED it and everything else by Ray Blackston and would like to add it to our library As church librarian, I m proofreading it to make sure it s ok and it won t offend the little mennonite women at our church

    8. Not what i was expecting but that is a good thing i like the fact that they Ray Blackston had a crazy environmentalist in the book Really great i must say This book does not teach anything really so if u just want to pass time this would be a good book to read because it is entertaining even thought it has it s slow paragraphs here and there.

    9. I read his first three books starting with Flabbergasted and ending with Lost in Rooville and loved them This one started out well but it seemed like the author decided in the middle that he was tired and needed to just end the book.

    10. Not my favorite Blackston book This one told the story of a guy who fell in love with a girl that required some drastic pursuing.
