Blurb/Synopsis:  Have you ever wondered why popular books keep giving us the same tired plot lines over and over again?

Peter sure does.

He has a theory that there are simply no more original ideas left in the world. To prove his hunch right, he makes a bet with his best friend, Andy. Together, along with the girl of his dreams and his best friend’s wife, they set out on a zany adventure that includes escaping the clutches of an illegal street racing crew, a terrorist attempt, one creepy morgue attendant, and a near death experience at the wheel of a well-known celebrity.

Will Peter find out why all of the words went away or will this unlikely foursome just prove he is a terrible writer?

FTC Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the author, editor, publisher, or Promo Host. This is my honest opinion about this book and I did not receive any monetary compensation for writing this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.

“Bear with me. So we have no ideas, well, no new ideas. But we’re not alone. Look up some movie show times, what will you see? Sequel, sequel, sequel, prequel, remake, remake, reboot. Maybe there’s something new out, but it’s probably based off a book or popular series. And those are based off some other idea that’s already been done before. It’s just one crappy merry-go-round of the same couple of ideas over and over again.” At a pause of silence I continue, “Do you know what that means?”

“Yeah, that we have to come up with something that doesn’t suck.”


My Rant:  The day the words went away was an interesting story. To my surprise it was very eventful. The characters were very intriguing. They were funny, creative and completely witty. The plot was full of adventure there was always something going on that made you stay with the story to the end but what really held me was the theme. Can you imagine what it would be like if the words really did go away. Like the characters in the book they set out on a quest to find the answers to there questions and really embark on a journey that brings them closer but in the mist of this journey the gut retching humor makes you laugh so hard your ribs begin to hurt. I love the authors writing style. the writing was smooth with the ability to hold the readers attention. But her humor was astounding, I would ponder how she developed the lines for the characters. This is the first book that i have read from this author and it wont be the last.  The day the word went away completely took me away into peter and the gangs world and completely held me there until I finished the adventure with them. 

My Recommendation: 

I rated this book 4  out of 5 Purple Rant Hearts and would recommend the this book to anyone that enjoys a good story with loads of humor and adventure.

  1. One of my favorite books that had me laughing out loud was Bridget Jones’s Diary, by Helen Fielding. It was a fun book to read! :)
