Publisher's Summary

With its acid edge and wicked humor, JL Davis (writing as Jeff Davis) delivers a rapid fire depiction of bureaucracy gone wild that digs underneath the fingernails of the typical blue collar worker, satirizing both modern day relationships and business life. Specifically, if we can't stand our jobs and families, live for the day to escape!
Unlucky in love and trapped in a dead-end job, Jack Snaggler thinks his fortune is about to change when he meets a drop-dead gorgeous brunette named Paradise. Think again. When a shady fast food chef goes missing and coworkers start mysteriously disappearing, Jack finds himself framed for murder. If he wants to stay alive long enough to ever see Paradise again, he'll first need to escape a conspiracy that at each turn, involves almost everyone he knows. Living under the umbrella of a politically incorrect and bureaucratic world are people like Ed Shoemaker, a disgruntled office worker who wants to off his wife and flee to Fiji; Eileen Klump, a secretary in the throes of menopause who suffers from periodic breakdowns and intermittent stays at the local mental facility; Lance Sheppard, who makes his living the good old-fashioned way: disability fraud. Regardless of the premise, the book punctures the fabric of what's simply funny with a pervasive shadow of underlying truth regarding Middle America and the world at large.
Part Big Brother, part corporate mindset, part 60s cool, and part dysfunctional love interest. The road to paradise has never been so tainted or hilarious.

The Office meets Clue...sort of

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I will start by saying that I really enjoyed David Bosco's narration. The sound effects were a nice touch too. Definitely gives it that retro radio show feel. The story line was an almost manic and, yes, chuckle-inducing romp. Definitely a satire of Middle America living. It reminded me of a mix of the Office and Clue.

Enjoyable escape fropm reality

Nesting With the Loons is a quirky and funny book whose humor can surprise you at times, so be careful if you're drinking coffee while you listen, or you could end up with a giggle-snort and coffee out your nose.

Narration is top notch from David Bosco who reads the work of Jeff Davis as if he wrote it himself, something I always admire in a good narrator, in essence, the narrator is so good, you're convinced he's the one who wrote the book.

Sprinkled with occasional sound effects and transitions, the audio and production value help make this more than just an audio book, but more of a theatrical experience. If you're looking to escape reality for a little while, and you like to laugh at things that happen at work, then suspend disbelief for a bit, enjoy some eccentric characters, and you will enjoy this book as much as I did.

I was provided with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
