Slivers Of Life
If you’ve ever felt that unmistakable lure of E-bay, this is a book for you. If you just enjoy a good laugh-out-loud sort of read, The Village Idiots Ebay Club is just what you need. I found this hilarious story on the Indie Tribe web site and took a chance on it. I’ve never used E-bay personally, but I know many who seem to be addicted to the site.
Author Charlie Bray has managed to capture the silliness of those who find themselves hopelessly caught in the pull of the online bidding web site. Set up like an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, the story gives readers a fly-on-the-wall listen as a cast characters birthed from the mind of the author tell their tales of woefully idiotic behavior seemingly instigated by the bidding web site. Members of this group spill the beans on themselves, discussing the uselessness of the items purchased, the foolishness of prices paid for worthless objects, and the pure additive rush of a winning bid.
Author Bray uses humor and wickedly creative dialogue like a true master, drawing laughs from readers with the ease of a classic storyteller. This book is unique, quite original, and deserving of a wide audience. I highly recommend it to anybody who appreciates a good, funny read.
