Fluffer It s about a journalist, he said, a rock journalist, who is assigned to go on the road with this band, Numb Skull, and follow their adventures as they try to gain enough exposure and experience to gain a sponsorship from an adult energy drink Sounds perfect It got better, too, once I started reading and realized that the Fluffer of the title is, indeed, the adult energy drink Fluffer As in the sl Author Dan Schell found me and asked if I d be willing to review his novel, The Road to Fluffer It s about a journalist, he said, a rock journalist, who is assigned to go on the road with this band, Numb Skull, and follow their adventures as they try to gain enough exposure and experience to gain a sponsorship from an adult energy drink Sounds perfect It got better, too, once I started reading and realized that the Fluffer of the title is, indeed, the adult energy drink Fluffer As in the slang term used in the adult movie industry.The sly laughs don t stop there The band is named Numb Skull Its lead singer is named Chester Drawers, and he can t say anything without tacking on an All right at the end Slam dunk This is one fun read.But it s not without its flaws Lead character and music journalist Darrell is a nice guy Maybe too nice He sort of floats through the novel as his marriage crumbles He s not fighting for it, nor is he fighting for his job with the sort of passion one would expect when faced with losing one s marriage AND one s job You gotta salvage one or the other so that, at the end of the day, you ve got SOMEthing, right Maybe not, but it d have been nice to see a bitfight out of our lead character.The band bumbles along in a very real way They re inept, but also a bit too passive They say they want this, but their passion isn t shown And there s not much at stake, overall the band either will or won t get the sponsorship, but nothing bad will happen if it doesn t happen That said, this is a greatly fun read for anyone who loves the Rock Fiction genre Schell s got the chops and the details to bring life on the road to vivid life and give the reader a taste for what it feels like to be out there, a struggling band who can t make it from Point A to Point B on what they re earning each show There aren t a lot of glimpses of this part of the road It s like writers most people assume that if you re in a band that s touring, you re raking in the bucks The truth is far from the dream, and at the end of the day, that dream is what fuels so many of us to keep going Schell s managed to let us empathize with the members of Numb Skull while educating us, all at the same time A West of Mars Recommended Read, simply because it s a fun one, even though it stopped short of being great This was a pretty good book about a man who writes for a rock magazine who tours with a local band The writing was pretty good and there was good character formation However, I would have liked to have seen the story go a bit further Parts of it seemed repetitious but that s what touring is There could have beeninformation about each member of the band but I like how the author brought the writers personal life into it All in all, not a bad book I read this about 6 or 7 times after I wrote it but I m not going to assign it a rating.
