Guy has always been great at doing nothing. And since his dad died, he’s gotten even better at it.
After all, as long as he has his sparkling wit and those one-line zingers (even if barely anyone seems to appreciate them), what else does he need?
But his best friend Anoop is determined to get Guy doing something. So, he gets Guy to join the Forensics Club with coaxing concerning hot girls being there. Especially one particularly hot girl: Raquel.
Yet neither on them figured that the awesome crime solving talents they begin to cultivate are going to have practical usage.
Until, that is, when a real crime scene shows up in what was supposed to be a staged one to gauge their forensics skills.
In fact, Guy’s life begins to bear resemblance to a daytime soap opera when secrets about his dad’s life become revealed and a break-in leaves him wondering what else he doesn’t know about his unusual dad.
Sadly, Guy is seriously beginning to doubt Anoop’s assertion that the club will help them get girls.
Guy Langman: Crime Scene Procrastinator is a funny, fast-paced book with a believable guy – for better or worse – as our central character.
Though a bit of pleasing mystery crops up, as mentioned earlier, Guy Langman is far more about the entertainment – which it does well! It’s truly hilarious at times with many stand-out characters. This makes it all the more great when the novel takes a more moving turn at times and reminds you that in the end this is a guy that is deeply mourning his father.
Now, Guy Langman: Crime Scene Procrastinator is a lot more guy-oriented (especially in the comedy) than I usually read. Definitely a book that those of the male persuasion would relate to. But girls that enjoy lighthearted laughs and a core of sweetness (don’t tell the guys!) will really like it, I feel.
In the end, Guy Langman: Crime Scene Procrastinator was a good book. Did it blow my socks off? No. Yet I was smiling most all of the time – nothing to scoff at!
