The best Kindle To Live and Drink in L.A. Let me give you a sample of mister Peller’s prose:“But to this day I feel maybe because when he made this confession to me and I actually seemed to listen is the reason he put me down as someone to contact in the case of an emergency.”Did the author put this phrase in the mouth of a harebrained, grammatically challenged character? No, we are still in the Preface, this is Ben Peller speaking.A few pages further on, we find this: “[…], and my army of empty 1.75 liter bottles of Smirnoff bottles on the floor, all stacked up like good soldiers.”Obviously no editor has come within smelling distance of this piece of work.And the storytelling is on the level you would expect after these verbal pyrotechnics: flat, predictable, sappy.How this got published is a mystery to me, although it looks very much like a self-published effort, set as it is in huge hideous Courier-style type.How this got a 4.45 score on Goodreads (and how Peller’s latest offering scores a perfect 5 after 34 ratings!) is easier to explain: family and friends of young Ben, shame on you!!!
