This is such a great review! I was intrigued by what the book has to offer. I'm not sure though what black comedy is but I'll delve into the topic later. I don't prefer books that use plenty of profanities. I hope this would be a good read! Thank you!

I think that part where he looks for money so he can divorce sounds humorous. Thanks for your nice review

A riotous social satire that's as entertaining as it is sardonic. The author does a good job of masterfully creating a story that's insightful with a searing exploration of human behavior.

Black comedy is a new genre to me. And according to the review the book should be clearly very amazing and I want to read it very soon.

I enjoyed reading your review. I have not read black comedy, but would certainly read this book. I find it interesting that the characters are developed so well with the minor characters. Often the minor characters are overlooked and unfinished.

Black comedy books aren't to be read in public. They should be enjoyed in private, where you can laugh, scream and dribble at your pleasure, without fear of being arrested. This looks like one of them and I can't wait to read it. Nice review.

I have never read a black comedy so this would be an interesting read. And also the story seems appealing to me.

Black comedy; sounds quite like an intriguing genre to delve into. The right dose of suspense finely blended with well applied dark humor seems fun to me. Would be quite a delight to learn hiw these 3 friends fares with their quest to win the lottery.

This is a very good review, I would want to read the book, but I'm not a big fan of a lot of profanity. I am intrigued by the theme of the book.
