I just finished your novel! I think I'll never look at Optimism the same way again. I got through most of it at airports and on the plane this late February as I was travelling around a bit to Boise and Baton Rouge. I hope I didn't annoy people when I kept on laughing out loud. A few people asked me what the heck I was reading, so your Amazon sales might spike.

From the Amazon Review.

Tyler is the type of guy that most people want nothing to do with, yet Autobiography of a Narcissist is so funny and well written that you find yourself actually caring what happens next. Jonathan Foster has created such a real voice for Tyler that I find myself thinking that maybe I would find the author as annoying as the book's main character (that is a compliment to the author by the way).

This is the kind of book you want to have if you're home sick in bed or have a long plane trip ahead of you. It makes you laugh and it keeps you entertained, even as you're wondering why in the world you are still reading about this guy who is so self-absorbed you just want to whack him upside the head.

I am intrigued. I will have to read your book because someone commented that it made them laugh outloud while sitting in an airport. I haven't read a book like that since David Sedaris's "Naked" which made me laugh heartily as I traversed Puget Sound on a ferry. I'm sure people thought I was mentally disturbed but I was laughing too hard to care. Hopefully your book will have the same result.

Thanks, Sharon. I would be in your debt were you to read it and post your thoughts here, positive and negative.

Interesting that you would find this section and post here, since this particular area was what the entire blog was intended to be about: Comment and Discussion on the book. But, as with most writing, it took its own shape. Such is the life of words.
