After making an unexpected connection with God via his cell phone, one man embarks on an unlikely spiritual quest in this smart, savvy, rambunctious debut from author Rick Springfield.
"Why are we here? What is love? Is there a Loch Ness monster? Does God send text messages?" These are the kinds of questions Horatio Cotton, aka Bobby Cotton, asks as he sets off on an uproarious adventure to find his purpose in life. After serendipitously stealing a mysterious self-help book called Magnificent Vibration: Discover Your True Purpose from a bookstore, Bobby calls the 1-800 number scrawled inside the front cover, only to discover that he has a direct line to God - and that God likes to mess with him. Soon enough, Bobby finds an ideal companion for his journey - the breathtakingly sexy and exceedingly sharp Alice - and they set out to find some combination of spiritual and carnal salvation...and possibly save the planet.

Very engaging, enjoyed every chapter!
Not sure if I liked it or not
It was a quirky story, with plot changes all the time so it wasn't boring! And listening to Rick's voice for hours on end was pretty amazing too.
Frankly, it left me wanting something different. And I know that might have been part of the plan for the ending but I feel like alot of ground was covered in the book, with several story points not answered. What about LV? And I know it's possible to fall in love with someone in 12 hours or less, but how did it happen? What made it happen? And what was the point of all the retrospective? Each topic stopped just short of completion. Was that the point? I don't know.
Its a world full of confusion and not getting any better.
I went into this book with such high hopes. I saw reviews indicating it was a good, saw a performance of his in which he commented on the early reviews. I really wanted to love this book. I didn't. I feel like I need to write down notes about it and see if it makes more sense. Sorry Rick, but I just don't get it.
