“Mike Lewis wants 'out'. Out of his meaningless career, his shallow relationships, the big city rat race. On a whim, he signs a contract for a house in an idyllic retirement community in Florida that promises a peaceful life of golf and hobbies. Only later does he read the small print: he has to be over 60 to join the enclave. Trouble is, he's only 39. Welcome to the start of a whole new life...”


All you have to do is read the book description and it should be obvious that the premise of this book is one ripe with comedic potential. That the twist is the opposite of the norm, most people would rather pass themselves off as being younger, not older, adds to the humor of the situation. A quick, light-hearted read that tickled my funny bone.

Format/Typo Issues:

No significant issues.

Rating: **** Four stars
