Review of The Unbelievable Story of How I Met Your Mother by Preston Randall

Synopsis: "Daniel Zurenski feels like a total loser, but he's about to encounter a crazy array of characters who are going to change his life forever. It starts with Fred Zimmerman (and his unique pet) who scrubs pots at The Spaghetti Barn restaurant and accidentally sets off a disastrous chain of events. There's the volatile restaurant manager Paolo and his greasy head chef nephew Tony. Then there's a fanatical sports reporter named Bruce Jagerski who dreams of winning a marathon if only he didn't have such a bizarre running style. All come together during marathon race weekend in this hilarious tale which will keep you guessing right to the finish line."

My Review: This was kind of a comical short story but had some very serious underlying issues. It did get a little confusing at times with the jumping around of the timeline but after you got use to the writing style it kind of faded into the background. The characters were vivid and each had a very clear personality. Like I said the story as a whole was comical, though at time it was difficult to see the big picture until you neared the end of the story. All in all it was a pleasant time spent reading it.
My Rating: It was a funny story but with so many underlying issues that you can appreciate the substance of the story and the delivery. It did occasionally get confusing with some skipping around of the timeline but with being a short story it didn't effect the outcome of the reading experience.  I give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
